Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! While the COVID 19 pandemic is adding stress to our lives, we Pals hope this blog hop will help to lift your spirits. Let us inspire you to take a creative break and relax for a little while. This month our theme is “Special Occasions” where we have made a project for just about any occasion you can think of! You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Retirement Card Wish for it All Peggy NoeThe special occasion for my card today is the retirement of a friend! Retiring is a big event and it’s a wonderful time to send a special card!

The fun doily, cake and sparklers were created with the Wish for it All Bundle. This stamp set is great for all kinds of celebrations, birthdays, weddings, graduations…lots of special occasions!

The background on this card was watercolored with Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green inks and an Aqua Painter. It gives a softness to the card that I really like 🙂

The cake has a pretty tricolored ribbon tied around it and three blingy sparklers on the top!

The die-cut word “happy” was cut out using the Well Written Dies, and the word “retirement” was stamped using the coordinating Well Said stamp set. These are two products that have options for so many different events and occasions ~ I use them all the time and love having them handy to pull out when I need them 🙂
