The lists of this year’s retiring stamp sets and accessories are out. It is always a bittersweet time for me. There is such sentimental attachment to so many of them, but when they leave there will be new ones to love! So, I think I will be showcasing some of them to you through the next weeks to give you some inspiration for the ones you have or even make you think you need them before they’re gone! Take Care, Soho SubwayBlessings from Heaven, Soho Subway This card was inspired by this week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge. I was thinking about entering it but not quite sure. Maybe I should just give them a chance to miss me over there! In any case, the very cool sketch just screamed to be a gatefold card. I have been doing a lot of those lately (hint, hint – stay tuned!) since they make a great presentation. I love these two stamp sets, Take Care on the front and Blessings from Heaven on the inside. This DSP is so rustic and makes a really nice masculine card.

It’s All in the Details

So, have you taken advantage of the FREE SHIPPING this week? I placed my order on Monday, and the incredible staff at Stampin’ Up! got it out pronto! Of course, as always, I forgot a few items! Ordinarily, that would have really irritated me because I would have to pay shipping again or hold those items for my next order. It feels so good to say, “Oh, well, I will just have to order again!” So, if you have something that you forgot, just click my SHOP button on the right sidebar and get it on the LAST DAY OF FREE SHIPPING. There – you can’t say you didn’t hear it from me!
