Happy Retirement!

Hey there, m'darlins!! Happy October . . . and happy Thursday!!  It's time for another fun challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! This week we're doing another "alphabet" themed challenge!

"H is for . . . "

And here's what I came up with . . .
So, you're probably wondering what this has to do with anything starting with an H, right? Well . . . wait for it . . .
Hahaha!! It's a Happy Retirement twisted easel card!! This precious little image is called "On the Pot" and is available HERE in Mo's online store. This is the "straight-haired girl version." Mo also created 3 other "On the Pot" images . . . and you can check them all out right HERE! Care for a close up of this little cutie? Okey dokey . . .
My little sister, Dee, commissioned this card for a co-worker!! And, in fact, she's the one who came up with this cute sentiment!! Clever girl!! Here are a couple of side views . . .

My Card Recipe:
Image printed on Cryogen metallic white cardstock
Elegant Eggplant & Baja Breeze cardstock: Stampin' Up

Seam binding & curly floral thingies: The Ribbon Girl
Sentiments: Computer-generated

And, last but not least, a bit of an "artsy" view . . .  
Soooooo . . . fun, huh?! Now, please pop on over to Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog to check out the fabulous creations by my clever and talented DT sisters! Then, please join us for this week's challenge. It's simple, really, just pull out your craft supplies and at least one Mo Manning image . . . and let the crafting begin!
