A fond farewell to some retiring sets

Hi everyone. I can't believe the wait is finally over. Tomorrow 1st April brings us a new Stampin' Up! year and a new catalogue. Although I am very said that some of my favourite sets are retiring, my wish list from the new catalogue is continuing to grow. I am really looking forward to using the new in colours. I know pink pirouette is going to be a favourite.

I have a few cards to share with you this evening, all featuring retiring sets. First up a birthday card I made for my sister inlaw, I actually made the same card for my husband in different colours as I really liked it.








stamp sets: eat cake, circle fo friendship
card/ink: chocolate chip, whisper white, regal rose, barely banana,so saffron, certainly celery
accessories: regal rose ribbon, small oval punch,1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, scallop circle punch, brad from pretties kit, markers


This next card is actually made for a sketch sunday challenge, but I was too late getting my entry in.






stamp set: summer by the sea
card/ink: close to cocoa, chocolate chip, groovy guava, watercolour paper, soft sky, wild wasabi, designer series paper afternoon tea


The last card uses bud basics and designer series paper.

feels a bit like a wake - very sad but exciting at the same time
