Congrats on your retirement Mrs. Oberdieck!

Mrs.O & I at her retirement party

Here is that retirement card I wrote about making for Mrs.Oberdieck, the social worker/SADD advisor/Jack-of-all-trades/nicest person ever at my high school. I didn't really know how to go about making a retirement card because I've never made one...I was going to use the school logo, a Spartan head, and the school colors, maroon and white. When I told my mom, she made a face at me so I decided to go with something floral and elegant instead. I had to work all day and I got called in to get up and work in the morning, so I had to rush this more than I would have liked because I don't have the time to make it tomorrow before the party like I initially thought I would. Whew! And I think that was a run on sentence. I better get to bed so I can even function tomorrow--and I still have to write in the card!


  1. Tabitha, this is just a gorgeous card. I would never be able to throw it away and I doubt Mrs. Oberdieck can either!!!

  2. Thanks for your comments ladies! I love that you check up on my art. I do think this card came out quite elegant. I was hoping it didn't look too much like a wedding card and that it was appropriate for a retirement. But who doesn't love beautiful things? :o)
