Happy Retirement

My husband asked me to make two Happy Retirement
cards for former work friends who are retiring.

The first one is a CASE of a beautiful card that Melissa Phillips made.
I love it and think it makes a fabulous retirement card.
I used Feathered Friends 12, Border Bling Flowers and Some Like It Hot (flowers) 
from Papertrey Ink.
I used BotaniCuts Palm from The Greetery and
Enjoy the Journey from Gina K. Designs.
The embellishments are from Trinity Stamps and called Bubble Blow Out.

On this card, I used the Little Pickup from Honey Bee Stamps.
The Cuttlebug Diamond Plate Embossing Folder,
the Stitched Arch Stax and Cloud stencil from My Favorite Things,
Country Roads from Gina K. Designs.

Thanks so much or stopping by.
Your kind comments are always appreciated.


  1. Love that scene with the flamingo. Who wouldn't love to retire to the beach. The truck on is perfect for a man retiring. Your husbands friends will love these.

  2. Love both these. Perfect for a retirement and a life change. Gorgeous flamingo card, and I really like that embossed background on the other. GENIUS!!!!!

  3. WOW Sharyn, you have two perfect retirement cards here. You outdid yourself on these two.

  4. Oh these are fantastic! Love that sweet pink flamingo! The layers and your design are wonderful! I think I own everything needed to create your 2nd card, it was because of YOU I bought that stamp set! lol That's a great retirement card too!

  5. So glad I have time this morning to make a comment. I love specially made cards and I think you did it right. My fav is the flamingo.


Thank you for your kind comments. I always appreciate hearing from you.
