Yesterday was a fairly momentous day in the Beez household. Not because I finally managed to get my bedroom clean and tidy, which, shamefully, was fairly momentous, but because Mr Beez got to hang up his working boots forever and retired. This was a few months ahead of schedule, due to reorganisation and cutbacks. His last day was quite an emotional one with lots of lovely messages, gifts and speeches. To mark the occasion, I whipped up a little card for him:
The coordinating papers and sentiment are all by Craftwork Cards and the ribbon is from my stash. I can’t remember where I got the little wooden moustache, possibly Ebay. Now the impact of his retirement probably won’t kick until after Christmas, when I return to work, as he would have been taking a Christmas break anyway. So just to be sure he was clear about what the future holds, I also made him this little gift:
Don’t you just love how long those pages are??! Plenty of ruled lines inside to keep him nice and busy!
I don’t know what you have planned for your day, but we’re off to try and crack the Christmas food shop.
Thanks for buzzing by.
