Sadly, I will be saying goodbye to Patrice soon as she is moving to a different state for another job. It will seem so odd not to see her practically every day :o( but I wish her the best and wanted to thank her for the role she has played in my life for the past several years. You know the saying about friends for a reason, a season and a lifetime? Well, I can tell you that we have definitely been friends for a season and I hope that continues to a lifetime friendship.
It was hard for me to make this card without tears popping up - so I kept it pretty clean and simple I apologize that my photo isn't top notch this time but I hope that you can still see all the elements that I used. Thanks so much for stopping by - have a wonderful Monday, and remember to tell your friends how much they mean to you. Hugs!
Supplies (all from Stampin Up!): This card uses a mix of new, retired and retiring (May 31st)products. Cardstock - Poppy Parade (retiring), Baja Breeze and Whisper White. DSP - Pocketful of Posies (retiring) and Summer Smooches (new). The large flower is made from the Blossom Builders kit (retired from Occassions Mini) and a Bright Button (current). The small flowers are from my stash of retired products. The strip of yellow ribbon is brand spankin'new and will be available starting June 1st . The Thank You banner is made with the new Bitty Banners Framelits dies (available June 1st) and the Bitty Banners stamp set. I used Baja Breeze ink on it (sorry it doesn't show up very well in the photo). The circle behind the large flower was made with Baja Breeze cardstock and the 2 1/2" circle punch.
