(happy retirement!)

A happy “Hello” to all of you from “Hello Milly” this wonderful Saturday morning.
I hope you have a great weekend planned weather it will be crafting or just spent some time outside enjoying probably some of the last warm late summer sunrays. We do have sun today but the air is chilly, my weekend will contain either escaping to the mall with the excuse that I have to buy some gifts and clothes for my oldest or help in the basement Smile and since I am sick and tired of that mess I choose what I think I can do best – go shopping lol
You may have noticed on my last few cards that I have changed the “orientation” how the cards open. In order to get a nice shot of all the details and a great angle for my pictures I prefer the other way, but for “handling” and using such a heavy card with many layers I thought this way would probably work better.
