Retirement...what the #%*! is that?

Today at Catch the Bug is Thursday Oldie but Goodie.  For my card, I used Stella peeker Retirement.  I have a co-worker that is retiring at the end of this month and she is an excellent social worker. Our company has actually hired someone to replace her and has started her training which is great because we have such a need for their services. I made this card for all my co-workers for sign for her.

Let it Snow

We are scheduled for snow the next few days, and I am not trying to encourage anything. However, I got some new snowflake dies from Tim Holtz and Birch Press and just love how they look together. The papers on the inside are shimmer which don't show up well in the photo and then I added some brads. The snowflakes on the outside are glitter and shimmer along with sequins.
