It's Retirement Time!

Happy Wednesday Everyone,

I made these cards early this morning for a teacher at school who is retiring after 36 years in education. We had a special luncheon to celebrate all her years of service.

I used My Favorite Things ~ Blueprint 20, stitched circle, and scribble roses. Turquoise Stickles were applied to the rose overlay.

The sentiment is computer generated and black sequins were scattered around.

The second one is simple, just as retirement should be. I added a big yellow organza bow and yellow sparkle skittles.
This teacher has only a couple more days with students and then it is time for her to relax and enjoy. I still have MANY years before I can retire, but I sure do think about it. I look forward to traveling, crafting, and being leisurely. What do you want to do when you retire? 

Stay Creative,


  1. WOW, your retirement cards are gorgeous! The black/white chevron paper and the pop of color with the flower is so pretty!
