Happy Days are Here!

Someone special is happy today has arrived :)  Today Barbara Anders is celebrating her LAST day of work and retirement!  Woo Hoo!  I know she's been counting down the days on her blog for a long time to finally be here.  So today Tammy Hershberger and a bunch of Stampy Girls have gotten together to wish Bar a very happy Retirement Day!


I really, really love this set from Flourishes, it's called Spring is Sprung.  It's one of my fav's from the past year of releases.  And I love the theme of new beginnings in it, perfect for the new beginning of retirement life!

I've used some pretty Copics to give it a fresh dose of springy color and this week's Mojo Sketch for some round fun.   The papers are from MME Sunshine pack.



Now isn't this sentiment perfect for the inside of the card?


Happy Retirement wonderful lady!  And many happy stamping days ahead!
