March Cards

I retired from my job at WVU Healthcare on March 6th.  For many reasons, I decided to make my own cards.  This was my first-for Virginia.  She was my right hand colleague at work and so supportive.  I chose the pet paper for her because she has at least 20 pets! I hand wrote a thank you inside for the many things Virginia did to make my last day at work special.

My nephew AJ turned 25.  His Dad is a tow truck man.  The inside sentiment:

May the next three quarter centuries 
bring you as much happiness,  health,
 hope and success as your first!  
Happy 25th birthday!

For many years, I sent birthday cards to the staff at the Healthy Cafe.  This one is for John, who makes cold catering trays at work but grows produce at home.  The inside sentiment:

May your day be very pleasant
every moment that it's here
And leave you with the promise
of a bright and happy year!

Betty loves owls and this one simply says "Fabulous is Who You Are!"!

My sister Terry made me a beautiful gardening basket for my retirement.  Terry sends numerous cards.  Inside is a poem:

Sister, we've been there through life's sorrow and pain
But together we have always endured the strain
We've argued and bickered and made each other mad
But if you weren't my sister, life would be so sad

My brother Jim celebrates his birthday at the end of March.  We were Bruce High School "Bulldogs" and he is a patriot.  My brother also is a great cook, reflected in the verse:

Cook'n up a great
Happy Birthday! 

My nephew Caleb turns 10 on Easter.  I think he'll like the bunny ears on his card.  Inside verse (with a play on words):

Let's celebrate
Hop-hop horray!
Caleb turns 10 today!

George is the AM Team Leader for the Healthy Cafe.  He orders the food and starts to work very early in the morning-4 or 4:30 am!  The card features pretty farm fresh papers and the cut-out "Early Bird Gets the Worm"!  I added the clock charm.
Happy Easter my friends!
