Fun and Fast Notes

I decided that I would just keep posting some "tributes" to the retiring for the next couple of weeks, I will be showcasing some cards we did throughout the last couple of years using these retiring stamps...
Here is one we did at one of the first classes with the new catalog last year, was trying to showcase some of the new colors. I cased the card from the IB&C.

GoodBYE to Pick a Petal

I actually LOVED this set when I saw all the things you could make that did NOT include the original flower! And now, it is going, leaving, saying goodbye is never easy! So long my friend....this was one of my FAVORITE ideas for it!

Cheers to You

So at the end of this month, we say GOODBYE to LOTS of stamps sets to make room for all the wonderful NEW ONES! Sadly, this is one that will be retiring! I submitted this card to a publishing company, but it was rejected, so I am sharing it here.
I used the Brushed Gold cardstock and paper pieced the wine glass and punched out stars, (which I see that punch is retiring too! )

Happy Birthday

Well, today is my birthday, and this is another card rejection from submissions, but I used the Happy birthday sentiment from Grunge Rock. I learned how to make these ribbon flowers from convention 08 and it's one of my favorite things to make!
