Happy Retirement



Hi Blogging Beauties,

I thought I would share this Retirement card I was asked to make.  I had no idea what to put on it!! I kept it very simple and elegant with gold, cream and white. Then I realised I had no flowers that really matched so I had to make my own.  I added some gold swirls, some gold leaves and gold letters and the card was done.


Yesterday afternoon I was driving home from work so excited thinking I was on holidays!
I had taken in a slice, a Chrissie card and said goodbye to everyone...assuming it was my last day.  Then I got a text that afternoon asking me to work again tomorrow (which was today)...so I went back in again and had my "last day" all over again.  
I think I am definitely on holidays this time! (Fingers crossed no texts tonight!)

I love Christmas holidays...it means no school responsibilities....
Time to put my tree up and get those Chrissy cards finished - right!  There is plenty to do!!

I hope to be back tomorrow.
