Now, here is what I made. It isn't a card as you can see. Luckily for me this challenge tied in perfectly with the retirement of one of my colleagues. It was her party last night, after 25 years of service, and we all had a page in a book to leave our comments and words of love and best wishes etc. I 'kidnapped' the book one evening last week and this was my page for Shirley.
Here she is when she was given it last night - she was delighted!! It was lovely reading everyone elses memories and funny stories. I am sure she will treasure it forever.
Here I am (on the right) in a very blurry pic taken last night (loving the verrrry soft focus - hides all those fine lines haha)
