RETIREMENT CARD

Today is a day of celebration. First I will be going to a memorial service and celebrating the life of my dear friend and Ya Ya - Shari McFarland. If you have followed my blog through this last year, you can see the different cards I made for her. She received a card each week from me - the majority of them were handmade creations. Shari loved them all. I did a memory board of her and our special group of friends - the Ya Ya's - a creative adventure into reflection, giggles, sadness, and wonderful memories.

My second celebration today is a retirement party. A choral music teacher from our school district is retiring. I believe my daughters had him for choral music the majority of their school careers. Both participated in Show Choir under his direction. Staci even had him as her freshman softball coach. He has touched many lives in his many years in music education. Thank you Bill for everything you have done.

This card is for Bill. It is based on sketch 66 at Card Patterns. I had bought this paper in a scrapbook kit at Tuesday morning - I knew it would make a wonderful masculine card. The music paper is a different company. The card also falls in the SRM Stickers monthly challenge for celebrations

Everyone enjoy the remainder of your Sunday - I am enjoying my 3 day week end.

HI Barb,
I can't find an e mail address for you so I thought a comment will have to do!

I'm on the admin. team for Operation Write Home and looking for someone to make a sample card for our stash challenge June 16, 2010. I was hoping you'd be interested.

You can e mail me at gonestampin(at)gmail(dot)com

Thanks,

Jan
