Retirement is the life

Strictly "hot off the press" -- finished up this card, using a Mo Manning image, last evening, which will be going to our mailman (I know, the more proper term is "postal carrier" these days, but I'm old-school - hahaha), whose last day of work is coming up this next Friday.   I'll probably bake up a batch of chocolate chip cookies to go with the card, which he'll probably appreciate more!!   Of course, as you can see, being a "masculine" card, embellishments are at a minimum - and you can barely see the black brads I put on the navy blue background edging.
