Happy Friday everyone! Today’s card is a special one going to my oldest sister :) She is retiring from a long and rewarding 39 year nursing career and today is her last day of “work.” Some family, friends, and colleagues are going out for her last “long” lunch and I will take this card with a GC to her favourite quilting store :) I thought this quote from Teachers Count was perfect…I love using it for retirement cards. Though I usually leave the inside blank, I did print out this Dr. Seuss quote, “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” (I’ve put a request in for Julee to one day make this a plain jane stamp!).
I’ve caught the mixed media bug and have used some embossing paste and stencils to create those sweet raised hearts. I’m also using the brand new Viva La Verve sketch and colour combo.
I’ve also stamped an extra sentiment in the top right corner. Here’s a close up…
And finally, here’s the glassine bag I’ll put the card and GC into :)
