Happy Retirement Anne

My BFF Anne retires today from her teaching job, and this is her card. I had to use a Tilda stamp by Magnolia as she loves the 'little girls with no faces'
The retirement circle and the sentiment are both from the Cutting Cafe and were printed out on my computer


The children (6-7 year olds) at school had all painted her a picture and written a letter to her on the back. Some of the comments had me crying with laughter
"You are the best teacher in the universe, sorry you are leaving, have a nice time in bed"
"I am sorry you are retiring, you don't look that old"
"We will all miss you. Well, the girls will"
Of course, I am delighted she is retiring, lots more time to do stuff together, like shopping, and shopping and...did I mention shopping
HAPPY RETIREMENT ANNE XX
