The more I use these new In Colors, the more I just LOVE THEM!!
I was asked by my BFF Susie (my Honolulu buddy from single days…) to make a special card for her friend who was retiring from teaching. Special card makes me think: Card in a Box!
Aren’t those colors gorgeous?!! And I thought the chair & drink were the quintessential “retirement”! The beautiful Designer Series Paper is called Naturally Eclectic. I paired it with the In Color Designer Series Paper called Fresh Florals.
The sentiments from Wild About Flowers mainly focus on retirement. Notice how the word retirement is 2-toned. That was simple to do because the word retirement is a separate stamp. I stamped it in Lemon Lime Twist, then just dipped the bottom in Fresh Fig.
Thanks for stopping by today!

I just love the new Designer Series Paper Delightful Daisy! A big variety of beautiful papers!! And then there’s the Daisy Punch. I know I’ll get tons of use out of that!
I made a Card in a Box to show off the daisies! This card folds flat for mailing & is sure to put a big smile on the face of whoever opens it up! The colors are Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, & Daffodil Delight.
Here’s a close up so that you can better see the Daisy Delight stamp and that gorgeous embellishment, Faceted Gems! These come in clear or gold.
I’m so proud to be friends with Janna Hoehn, a woman from Wailea who is on a quest to find photos of every soldier who fell in Vietnam. So far she’s been featured in over 100 newspaper stories, and has found more than 1,400 photos of service members who lost their lives.
Last time I flew to Oahu, I was surprised to see an article about Janna in the Hawaiian Airlines Magazine, Hana Hou! Her dedication and perseverance is very inspiring to me!
So I made Janna a special card!
Here’s my patriotic Card in a Box for Janna. She received it yesterday & said it made her day!
