Life is Good...


Happy Friday Eve...


Why yes, you are visiting my blog...


Not my typical card...lots of layers and details.  

So here's a bit about my card and how I was inspired: 

So the bloom....I spotted one over on Julie's blog and I had to have them..fully enabled by Julie!   

For my birthday, my Boss' boss gave me this awesome book by  Lisa Pace:



My Boss' boss is actually an Interior Designer or that is how she started at the company over 30+ years ago.  Friday is her last working day...she's retiring.

Can I tell you that I'm sad and I'm hoping that I don't get all teary eyed at our luncheon today.  I'm like that you know...weepy...movies, commercials, weddings, funerals...sigh.  

Anywho's...she's one of those kind of peoples that make you feel instantly comfortable.  She is really good about including you and she truly listens to you.  A graduate in Interior Design and Fine Art, she always encouraged my paper crafting.  

I was inspired by one of the cards in book...I like the look of the stitching on the tag...gotta remember to keep doing that.

The dictionary page actually includes the word retirement but it is, obviously, covered up by the tag.

I'm trying to channel my inner Audrey Pettit....Whaddya think?

  2. I think it works! LOVE that bloom :) and I love that you've got retirement on that page...it's the little things (even the invisible little things, lol!)
    FWIW, I cry at that stuff too. No matter how many times I say I won't cry at the airport...ugly cry, every time.

    I am so like you. I cry at everything. Tell me I did something great, Hallmark commercial, Under Cover Boss, you name it and I cry. The older I get the worse it gets too.
