I wanted to show you a couple more samples using two of my favorite “Retiring” stamp sets. I love the colors of the top card (even though Taken with Teal didn’t photograph too well) and I love the “masculine look” of the birthday card. These two cards were made using a few retired accessories, too, but I hope you enjoy the ideas any way.
Tomorrow is the special day that Stampin’ Up! has encouraged us to eScape………get away from the computer and do things the “old fashioned” way……write a letter, don’t type a letter! Can I challenge you today to HAND WRITE a few cards??? I am going to do just that! There are some ladies who have been on my mind, birthday “thank you’s” that haven’t been sent, and a Sympathy Card to send. I hope that I can find time to send several cards and resist the urge to get on the computer. If you don’t hear back from me until Thursday, you will know why!
Here are a couple of photos of Sarah and her friend when we went swimming this morning. These two girls have been good friends since they were born and our families have been friends for many, many years. Summer fun at it’s best!
Have a great day! I hope to find some creative time today and recuperate from the last 2 days…….which were very busy and fast paced! Remember those 2 stamp sets at the top of the post…….BE HAPPY and EAT CAKE! Sounds like a good motto for the day!
