As Derek Drives off into the Sunset

Morning all.  We have a very male theme for you today over at Cardz4guyz.  We are looking for your 'Transport' cards. Now you could argue that girls like vehicles too.  My first proper date with the OH was to see the touring car races at Donnington Park (his dad was mortified that he'd taken me to a race meeting but I loved it).  However, you don't really see many girly vehicle cards do you?

Anyway, this was ideal for me as I needed a retirement card for a colleague.  After persuading him again and again that he really didn't want to go, Derek finally put his foot down and stuck his notice in.  The office really isn't going to be the same without him.  Derek loves his motor bike so there really was only one option for a card as far as I was concerned.  I found a suitable image over at Dr Digi and coloured it in.  I created a sunset background using an embossing folder and this is how it turned out.

I'm going to miss his insights into the Superbike Racing on a Monday Morning.  And his endless trips to make tea and coffee.  And about a million other things too.

Enjoy your retirement Derek.  You've definitely earned it.

Derek, the Legend!

Anyway, I've digressed a little bit.  Please pop over and join in the fun.  We do like to see what you come up with.

Thanks for reading.
