Today, I’m sharing some retirement card samples.
Just this last Friday, my husband, Pat, worked his last day! He retired after a twenty-six-year career at State Farm. That career took us many places. From Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, to Thief River Falls, Minnesota, to Woodbury, Minnesota, to Lincoln, Nebraska, and finally to Mesa, Arizona. Through our travels, we met a host of awesome people we call friends. State Farm treated us well. We’re glad to have had the opportunity to work for them.
We’ve been celebrating all weekend. As a stamper, I had to create my own card to congratulate him! There’s no going to the store to purchase one. Both of us love the beach and the ocean. I created a dream vacation scene with Stampin’ Up!’s Waterfront stamp set. It offers a host of images to craft a variety of nature scenes.
I also used the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder and the colors of Night of Navy and Mango Melody. The sentiment comes from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. It was punched with Stampin’ Up!’s Classic Label Punch.
It’s been fun for Pat as he hears from people he’s met throughout his career. He appreciates everyone wishing him well. For the time being, we plan to stay in Mesa, Arizona, and use our home as a base to travel. We look forward to spending time together trying new restaurants and seeing new places.
A few of my crafty friends have sent handmade congratulations cards. I share them below.
Thanks for stopping by today. See the list below for the ingredients I used to create the top card.
