Happy Retirement Mary


My sister is retiring after many years as a teacher and this is the card I made for her. I only made this card after talking to my sister Bea and she mentioned having to go out and buy one. I hadn't even thought about making a card at that point so I had to get busy.
Mary took time off from teaching to raise her kids then went back into the battles. I have a lot of respect for the teachers of this world. I went to parochial school and needless to say you paid attention in class or else. Now a days it is so different, but I digress.
Back to the card.The stamp is a Lockhart stamp Vintage Chair. I colored with Copics and the DP is (you guessed it) Lasting Impressions. The frame is Bazzil Basic Swiss Dots.
I want to sit in this chair with a cool libation and enjoy the sun don't you??? Thanks for stopping by.
I just entered this card into the Copic Creations challenge # 30 this week. Wish me luck.
