Happy retirement my friend.............

Hello all my friends out there in Blogland I just wanted to share this with you all as last week was my last one to work with my friend and colleague Linda she has put off retiring for a few months and decided enough is enough. I will miss her greatly as we had been together for 13 years with no cross words exchanged (now we sound married) and quite a few laughs she is the one of the few people I have really enjoyed working with, here is the lady in the middle.
and here is the mess I made making this card it had to be really special ............ so special I used my special Daisey D papers, your probably thinking why the fuss about the mess well I wasn't suppose to be in the craftroom yet!

now for the card which I think looks pretty good inside the small card is pictures of her beloved Donkeys that she loves.

I would like to enter it here: - Anything Goes - Anything Goes - Ribbons and Bows - Tie a Ribbon around it - Anything Goes - Anything Goes - pumpkin patch or anything fall - Anything Goes - Bling - Fall/Halloween - Autumn Breeze - Anything Goes - Fall Fun - Anything Goes
