Tom's Retirement Card

I didn't know what to make for a retirement card for a person I worked with for a while. I used to report to him a long while ago, but he left an impression on me. You know how you can meet someone and they may never know what an impression they made on you? Well, Tom is one of them. He was an army ranger and served for many years. When I worked under him, he was very much the opposite of what his exterior would show. He is a very kind and gentle person, with a tremendous love for his wife, and the stories he shared with me made me see him so differently than anyone else would see. He likes woodworking, and of course, gardening with his wife.

He has decided to retire and spend time with his wife, perhaps travel and garden. He told me his wife recently got her degree in gardening. Imagine the possibilities that will bring.

So I tried to come up with a card to make for him, and although I'm not crazy about it, I put it together and I'm trying to figure out if I will give him this one or make another one. Not too sure yet, but here's the card I first made:

The card seems very plain, and although I don't see a lot of fuss and bling for him, I just may make something else and see which one I like better.

Anyway, whichever I chose, I'll let you know which one I give him. I don't have much time ... by Friday, that's it.

Stop by later to see what I decided to do.
