My last boss before retirement, and principal of the elementary school where I worked as the office manager, is having his birthday in May. I wanted to make him a card to send my birthday wishes and to let him see what I've been doing with myself since I retired. Cardmaking is a hobby I started a few years after retirement with the encouragement of my sister and mentor, Heidi Gonzales (mylilscrapcorner.blogspot.com). It has been a lot of fun, creating new and wonderful friendship, and something that I really enjoy doing as well. It is so much fun to share my creations with family and friends.
You will note that this card sports a mustache, and, of course, you guessed it right, he has a mustache so I just had to make a card using my brand new Bow & Mustache EK punch. This is actually the second card I have made with a mustache...such a cute idea. My first card was for my brother-in-law's birthday and is posted back in January. It was done using the Stampin' Up Bird Builder punch...a different look, but works well too. But, I love this new quick and easy punch with the curly mustache ends. I hope my friend and ex-boss likes his card as well as I enjoyed creating it for him.
(Card inspired by a Liz Thayer design and modified by me.)
