Tempus Fugit

We have had lots of people (at the last count, I think it was 11!) hand in their notice at work in the last few weeks, lots of reasons why, but three of them are retiring. One chap is a particularly lovely gentleman, much loved by everyone & I have made this card for him 
The stamp is a freebie from Craft Stamper, stamped onto white cardstock, & distressed with SU Close to Cocoa ink. Paper is from a pack of sale paper, maker unknown (how unusual for it not to state maker on the pack!), ribbon from stash (I suspect it was salvaged from a box of chocs by a well known firm), card candy from Craftwork Cards & peel off sentiment from Papermania.

I am hoping to make cards for our other colleagues who are retiring, but my mojo has deserted me lately, which has meant I have struggled with even the idea of cardmaking lately, I hope it returns soon. Part of it may be because of this time of year. In the meantime I am very pleased to see the days starting to lengthen again.

Our colleagues are going to be much missed, & it is going to take a while for them to be replaced, let alone new staff trained to do their job, so we are anticipating that work will be much harder for a good while.

Tfl, & also for any comments you may care to leave
