My husbands receptionist and our friend is retiring at the end of March. Everyday driving to work in winter was a chore for her because the highway can get so slippery here, she hated it! This card is perfect for her.

The inside is too true, lol!

My husband is thinking of writing world traveller on the left, stay in jammies all day on the right, or something similar. 
 Happy Retirement Kim!

I HAD to add these pictures because this is what it looks like here today. 10 more cm of snow, come on its suppose to be spring, lol!
You can't even see the second snow shovel in the front yard, it says snow. Enough already!

  8. Beautiful funny card, I am a huge fan of your Bugaboo cards, and you have another winner here! Re the snow - We supposedly got 34 - 36 cm of the hateful stuff. The good news is my son and his gal made it safely home to Calgary today. We do seem to recover quickly from these hateful storms don't we...
