Si's Retirement Card

This week we will be saying "sail on" to our good friend and coworker as he is retiring. He is THE nicest man, a TRUE Southern Gentleman!! He will be greatly missed by so many! Tomorrow night our department will be having a cookout at a nice Country Club in the area to send him off....so to speak. He has a sail boat and one of the things he has planned to do is get on his boat with his wife, Kathleen, and sail up and down the Eastern Coast. WOW! Exciting! I made him a card using a sail boat, but I also incorporated all the major NC college colors in the card as well....Si is a college sports follower. The sun is Gold and Black for Wake Forest; the sentiment is Red and White for NC State; the boat is Dark Blue for Duke and the water is Carolina Blue for UNC-Chapel Hill! I think he will get a kick out of it, plus the boat is patriotic Blue boat, White Sails and Red flag! He is such a wonderful person, he will sorely be missed!!! Happy Retirement, Si!! God Bless! Here is a picture of the card: The sail boat is from Life's a Beach Cricut Cartridge. The clouds are from Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge. The sun is a 1 inch circle punch, the 'rays' are lines drawn with a gel pen and the sweet face is from Peachy Keen stamps. The string is the friendship string from WalMart. The wavy water made with a Fiskars punch. The sentiment is printed from the computer and attached to a red piece of cardstock scrap. The S K on the boat is for Si and Kathleen!
