Happy Retirement Col Kross...

Col Kross was my hubs Commander when we first arrived to DMAFB.  Not too long after we were here Col Kross took a year assignment to Africa, without his family.  He's now returned from Africa to retire from the Air Force.  I will miss him and his wife Mimi dearly.  I wish them both the best on their new life in the civillian world.
My card is really simple and basic.  I stamped my image form SU's Courage set in Momento Ink on Neenah Cardstock coloring it in with Copics.  I colored in the soldier, jet, and ship to give them a silhouette look.  I highlighted with a white gel pen on the flag and also a clear gel pen to the goggles.  Baroque Burgundy, Black cardstock, SU jumbo eyelets, and Denami Design Ribbon.
Below are some pictures from Col Kross' Retirement Ceremony and Retirement Party.

These young men did such an amazing job during the flag ceremony and presenting the flag to Col Kross.  It was completely silent during the whole ceremony.  Such a beautiful site, I had tears in my eyes the whole time.
Below are pictures from Col Kross' Retirement Party.  We had such a great time and glad we were able to be there.
