Happy Retirement to my brother

Thursday July 30, 2020

Hello.. Today I have a card to share with you.. My little brother.. well this one is 5 yrs. younger than me, is retiring August 1st.. He said after being home all these months with the covid pandemic that he's actually enjoyed the time and getting things done around the house that he never had time for before. He has / had his own contractor business building beautiful homes for a variety of people from  head of hospitals, Microsoft, large business companies and more.. He lives in a beautiful home he built quite a few years ago with an awesome view of Puget Sound. He loves creating, gardening, cooking, canning... there's so much he enjoys and I am so excited that he will now be able to enjoy his time doing for himself and my SIL.. She still plans to work which isn't far from their home as she loves her job and she pretty much is the only person in her department so that is a plus. 
Happy Retirement Barry... 
I stamped the Taylored Expressions images and sentiment on watercolor paper. I used ShinHan watercolors. That's pretty much it. CAS.

Wonderful card for your brother. I'm sure that he will have some great projects to do around his own home now. I wish that I could retire, but I think that I will be waiting for my cremation before that happens, lol.
