Congratulations on your retirement!

My mom and Eddie retired from teaching this year. I think they taught for 33 years and 10 years, respectively, and all in the same district. They got out of town quickly and moved way down into Mexico. I made this card for them (although it's late). They're having a fabulous time already and are looking forward to a new life there. So, mom, congratulations on so many years teaching, putting up with us brats. (I say "us" because she was my 4th grade teacher. How cool is that?!)

Unfortunately they'll see this before they actually receive it, but I just wanted to recognize them for all of their hard work and dedication. They were up there many nights after dark, preparing for the next day, catching up on grading papers, etc. So congratulations and I hope y'all enjoy Mexico!

Stamps: U R A Hoot, SU Print Pattern
Paper: SU Red, White, Creative Imaginations Fiesta dp
Ink: Black Staz-on, Black Versafine, and SU Cocoa & Pumpkin for watercoloring
Accessories: Sandylion Essentials stickers - Mexico, colored twine, green brads

Dudley's poncho and his blankets all have frayed edges and are roughed-up a bit to give it a more authentic look.

Happy stamping!
