I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries.

If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

Happy Retirement...Again!

Good Morning and Happy Humpday to you! Whew...what a week it has been. We said our goodbyes to my Aunt, my cousin and my mom yesterday. There wasn't a dry eye in the house. Several weeks ago, my husband learned his previous boss, Bob would be retiring at the end of the month. Even though my husband was forced to retire because of his bad back and the surgery he had last June, he stays in contact with the people he worked with for 3o+ years. Bob had retired in November of 1998. Because of some bad decisions made by the management that replaced him, the company went through some severe financial difficulties. The investors asked Bob to come out of retirement to resume his previous position. Now that the company is back on solid ground, Bob has decided to make his retirement permanent. This is the card I made for him. I used The Cutting Cafe's Happy Retirement Huge Circle as the main focal point then added the computer generated circle with his dates of service and the word "Again"---
Here is the recipe---
Card Size: 5"x5" Square
Stamps/Image: Cutting Cafe-Happy Retirement Huge Circle
Nestibilities: Circle, Square
Font: Computer Generated-Constantia
Accessories: Brads, Embroidery Floss, Foam Pop Dots

That's it for today. Thank for stopping by! I'm taking the day off tomorrow so I won't be back until Friday, hope to see you then. Enjoy your day!
