No need for clock-watching

This is a card to congratulate someone on their retirement.

My Sheri crafts challenge 76: time for a change was asking for a clock to be included on the card.

I've used the sketch for MFTWSC55:



I used old retro DCWV papers, using up offcuts and a print out of a digi clock (can't remember where it came from - it's just saved on my computer as 'clock') with a retirement sentiment.

It's also for City crafter 92: pretty inside and out, where this photo inspiration was given:




The message on the inside of the card was generated on computer:


This is also for:

Polka doodles 2: vintage/retro
Digistamps4joy 35: monochromatic - aquamarine and turquoise
Crop stop 54: a bit old you said - hope retro 60s is old enough!
Raise the bar 88: ring in the new year - circles
Pixie's crafty snippets 3
Hiding in my craft room 29: super scraps Saturday
Crafty sentiments: anything goes
