Retirement card

I have made a 'retirement' card for my mum this weekend. She is not due to retire until next Spring, but the branch where she works is being closed on Wednesday so she is getting redundancy and retiring with it now. At least, that is the idea, but the list of things she would like to buy with the redundancy money is growing every day! I think she will like it! My sister, dad and me have together bought her a lovely cast iron chiminea and a set of garden lanterns as she really enjoys her garden and we wanted to mark the start of her days of leisure.


  1. Love the card, it appears to be very apt for your Mum, I bet she will love it. Hope she enjoys her retirement, it's fantastic.

  2. Love the card Kathryn and your sentiment is perfect! Hope she has fun with her chiminea love mine well worth the pennies and make a great focal point in the garden. Love Chanelle xx

  3. love the card hope she has time to enjoy the garden if shes planning to shop till she drops x sue x

  4. Beautiful card love the colours you have used. Hope your Mum enjoys her retirement and that we have many more sunny days so as she can enjoy her garden and prezzies.
