My mom ALSO retired last week along with my dad. She worked in the Fire/Rescue administration dept. (same as my Dad) for the last 23 years. I'm so very happy for my mom. I remember when I was a Senior in High School she worked 3 jobs at one point just so that she could pay for all of the dues, yearbooks, prom and other things that make senior year so awesome. It's something I will always be grateful for and showed me the sacrifices that a parent makes for the benefit of their child.
So, Here's to You, Mom!! xoxo
For my mom's card, I used Stamping Bella's Uptown Girl - Opal the Optimist. She was of course colored with Copics. And although I know how much fun these Uptown Girls are to color, I still find myself thinking "WOW, that was fun!" when I'm finished. :) My card started with a base of Ivory cardstock paired with Terracotta Tile. I love the rich colors in these designer papers from Carta Bella, Traditions. I added a few clear rhinestones and a fishtail banner with a sentiment from MFT.
