When Cas-ual Fridays proposed travel as a challenge, I immediately thought of retirement. We have really been enjoying the traveling since we retired. So many of our friends are at that age that I decided to make a retirement card to have on hand.
I recently replaced our road atlas and being the recycler that I am thought I could use the maps on cards. So this one uses a portion of Indiana (with my hometown). The black strip is glitter tape I found at Michael's. It was a sale item for Halloween but sure makes a cute road. The car is stamped in black on yellow with sequin headlight and tire rims. Kind of looks like a cute little VW bug. The sentiment and 2 label punches are SU. 


  1. LOVE this, Donna! We hope to do a lot more traveling once I retire, too. I'm soooooo looking forward to that!

  2. This is really cute! I totally love the map background! Thanks so much for joining us over at the CAS-ual Fridays blog!

  3. Adorable! And what a great idea to repurpose your old road atlas! Thanks for playing along this week at CAS-ual Fridays :)

  4. Great idea to create a retirement card with the travelling theme!!! :)
    Beautiful card!
    Thanks for playing along in our CAS-ual Fridays "mapquest" challenge this week!
