Thank you card

Hi Everyone,
I had a wonderful buffet as a send off in work last week, there were at least 8 large tables of savoury food and 3 large tables of deserts, all brought into the kitchen area of the Department I worked in, by the staff, I had lovely things said of me and a cheque which was a collection from the Dept. There must have been at least 60 of them there including a couple of Consultants who came and said they would miss me too. I did tell them to remember me, in case I needed treatment in future and to be good to me  LOL. I started my thank you speech and couldn't finish it, too many tears - I will miss them all, and getting into a routine is nigh impossible at the moment.

Anyhow onto my card, this is what I am sending them as a thank you.  I saw this card HERE and it gave me a thought.  I already had the Dr Digi image so went for it.  I said "Fank Ewe", because I speak silly like that to them sometimes, (they know I'm a "little" crazy) inside I wrote "...for making me feel one in a million".  I saw this card HERE and loved what Jenny did, so copied the layout. Thanks to them both for giving me the ideas to put this card together. All done in PS.

I didn't do lots of layers just the sheeps head, as it will be on a table in the middle of the kitchen area, so everyone can see it and it will be handled a lot, at least they usually are!

the papers are - 
Blue Swiss dots Pink Petticoat 
B Gazarek digi kit Enchanted - green paper
the sheep coat is A Manda Creations digi kit Squeeze - stars, which I played with in PS to get what I wanted.
Perlen Pen for the pearls.
Glamour Dust on the words.

This is super thank you card which I`m sure everyone will appreciate. It is a sad time leaving all your work pals and having lots of time on your hands but it`ll be no time at all til you`re wondering how you ever found time to go to work.
Enjoy every moment.

Oh wow, Faith! What a brilliant card and a wonderful sentiment! Love it! Sounds like you had a great send off. Now take a deep breath and start your retirement! I am sure you will fill the time with ease!

Sounds like you had a great send off Faith. Retirement is brilliant, you can do all the things you never had time to do, I'm sure you'll soon adjust. Your card is lovely and I bet it raised many a smile.

Sorry I have been missing in action but had my holiday and then had to make 400 wedding invitations and envelopes so have been lying low. Ah can't believe you have retired I never thought you would but I bet they will all keep you busy with their orders for cards. Must be a very emotional time for you so am sending big hugs.As for your card love it ! that sentiment cracks me up and he has such a bemused look on his face little cutie.
