Going Postal at Totally Tilda

Hello,
Today's the beginning of the new challenge at Totally Tilda.  The theme is:
Going Postal
At first, I wanted to go for the crazy theme, but couldn't find any stamp that fit.  Tilda is just too sweet for this, lol!!!  So I went for the more regular interpretation.
I made this card for the commissionaire where I work.  He's the first person I see in the morning and always has a smile and nice word for me.  He's retiring  and I wanted him to know how much his positive attitude meant to me.
Bonjour,
On commence le nouveau défi chez Totally Tilda.  Le thème est:
Aller postal
J'ai fait cette carte pour le commissionaire ou je travaille.  Il est la première personne que je vois le matin et est toujours souriant.  Il prend sa retraite et je voulais qu'il sache à quel point il fait une différence dans ma vie avec son attitude positive.
I didn't want the card to be too girly, after all, it's for a man!!!  I still had to add a few flowers and lace.  I added some LOTV tags which I hand wrote the sentiments and a little charm.
Je ne voulais pas que la carte soit trop féminine, après tout, c'est pour un homme!!!  J'ai quand même ajouté quelques fleurs et de la dentelle.  J'ai aussi mis des étiquettes de LOTV dont j'ai écris les sentiments et un petit charme.
I coloured Waiting Tilda with Copics on Neenah cardstock.  I think she is so cute with her freckles!
J'ai colorié Tilda avec mes Copics sur du carton Neenah.  Je la trouve adorable avec ses taches de rousseur.

I'll bet you a million to one that this will be the only beautiful handmade card he will receive Brigitte!
What a beautiful and very thoughtful thing to do, not only because of the time that goes into it, but because you are recognizing him for what he means/meant to you.

Of course it goes without saying that it's totally AWESOME. He will be overwhelmed to say the least.

Je la trouve jolie ta carte. La petite Tilda a l'air toute genee et timide et je trouve cela cute. J'aime bien tes coins et meme si c'est une petite fille et qu'il y a de la dentelle, c'est bien correcte pour un garcon.
Bravo et je t'embrasse,
Patricia xx
