Yo Dudes!

After my Retirement Announcement yesterday I sat back & considered my future employment situation & what I could do. And after a matter of "seconds" I realised that I'd better stick to making cards!!
I had planned on becoming a Domestic Goddess this year as a New Years Resolution, but my ever-lovin' family just gave me "that" look...you know the one...reminded me about my Xmas Cake disasters (yes Disasters-plural...I'll explain in a mo') and my mind was made up. So I'm back...sorry!
Yep...I had a second Xmas cake disaster...for my regular "subjects" you may remember my Xmas cake saga before Christmas. One cake ended up as bird food (death sentence!) & the other was just about edible (No family members were harmed in the eating of my cake). However, as Xmas passed & New Year approached I noticed that the icing was starting to sag, like a pair of saggy knicks, but worse...the colour had changed from a snowy white to a browny colour (please don't go there...I know what you're thinking...filthy beasts!!). I didn't dare chuck it out to the birds, so put it the bin...but my bin-man is now wearing a back-brace since dragging away our trash last week!
My card today is for a young man celebrating his 11th Birthday & what better digi to use than Simon from Mo's Digital Pencil. I just love the laid-back style...perfect for this age group. The DP is from the Retro Stack from DCWV & the lettering is from Basic Grey.

*giggle, giggle* So glad to hear your retirement has been very short lived. RE: being a domestic goddess I think you should stick to what you're good at i.e. amazing cards! Being a goddess would require so much more work, not worth the effort, surely!

Your card is lovely, and I am so glad you came out of retirement. Domestic diva just isn't in the cards, baby. Face it.
