Belated Birthday Card

     It's been a year since I retired. Yet, I still don't have time to squeeze an hour or two to spend in my craft room. When I do find the time lately, it is usually working on the invitations for my niece's wedding in December.
     I have spent the last week remodeling one of the bedrooms. The walls were in such bad shape, I had to sand, spackle and re-sand some spots 7-8 times. I'm in the home stretch with just some minor touch ups.
 I made a belated birthday card for my teenage niece using this week's sketch from Retrosketches.





  This also fits the challenge for Casology

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

Oh, what fun this is, Carol!! She is going to love that "love bug" reminiscent of the "flower power" days of yore! I'm sure your new bedroom is going to be well worth all that TLC!!

What a fun card. I love your flowered 'punch buggy' as my kids call it. I am not surprised that you are so busy. Most people when they stop working they are so busy they don't know how they ever had time to work. Enjoy the fruits of all your hard work.

Carol, what a sweet card! Love your punch buggy, so festive with those dies under! My husband has been retired for about 5 years and is busier than when he worked...but I think it is a good thing to be busy and I am sure you are having fun with whatever you are doing!
