Happy Retirement, Bar!


Hello everyone! It's a special day for a fellow Color Throwdown team member! After many years of nursing others to health, Barbara Anders is retiring from the nursing profession! To help her celebrate, we have a blog hop to honor her. One trait that stands out... besides her fabulous stamping creations...is her great sense of humor! I went with a play on words for her card and computer-generated this sentiment - Three Chairs for You! - to go along with the trio of chair images. Good luck, Bar, as you enter retirement! You so deserve some time for relaxation, sleeping in, stamping all day if you so desire, drinking a glass of wine for breakfast...and lunch...and supper! ENJOY!!
