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.

Such a great and fun card, Lisa. I'm retired for 3.5 years now and still enjoying it (although I still sometimes miss it as I loved my work).

Brilliant and fun! A perfect card for your retiring colleague, I hope she enjoys her retirement...I'm loving mine! Thought I would really miss work as I loved my job (librarian) but I don't have time!
