This is a card 37 years in the making. Today marks hubby's last day as an American History teacher. That's right... 37 years of teaching American History!
Just thinking about all the students he's taught -- not to mention the players he's coached, the teachers he's mentored, the parents he's advised... Oh, my!
I so wanted to do something really special to congratulate him on his accomplishments and commemorate this wonderful moment. But, there's not anything that could come close to the kind of tribute and recognition he deserves. And, then you through in the fact that he's a stoic son-of-a-gun who wants no fuss, no party, no gifts, no anything.
Then, I came up with a final exam/exit exam idea for a card -- a multiple choice test of questions that recount some of the details of his career. So, even though this is not a traditional congratulations card, it's the just the right kind of congratulations card for hubby... although he might get a little attention since I plan on linking this to CAS-ual Fridays' congratulations card challenge. :)

Can't wait to give hubby his card and gifts tonight! I think this will be non-fussy enough for him. And, I think he'll really appreciate the card. Congratulations, hubby, on a fabulous career!
I have to say the layout of the card was a tough nut to crack. I don't even want to confess how many sheets of paper went through our printer before I finally got it right! :)
Congratulations to all the members of the Class of 2013 -- and kudos to all you loved ones for all the love and support you gave along the way.
Have a great weekend. As always, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
