Papaya Collage

So I know I went on and on about birds yesterday and how much I would miss fine feathers, but here is another one I am really sad to see go...Papaya Collage.  I love how eclectic this set is and I have had fun making MANY cards with this one.  I had fun with the color combo on this one...maybe because of the lack of LAKERS in the playoffs I felt the need to show some team spirit.  This Summer Starfruit will be greatly missed.  I made sure to buy a few packs just in case we never see it again(hint hint Stampin' Up! I would love to see it again...and Poppy Parade too if you are asking)  
Thanks for stopping in!  See you tomorrow with another retiring set!

This one is going to be missed.  I have always loved feathers.  I would say I love birds, but I would be lying:)  The intrigue me, but beaks and talons...I don't know the combo just seems horrifying.  Small birds that's a different story, they are fine, how much hard could they do? (well besides the book the birds)  When you get above a cardinal they just get mean and freaky...have you ever really check out an ostrich?  Those eyes...
OK enough about my crazy mind.  Feathers, I love them, they are so incredibly beautiful to me.  So when Stampin' Up! came out with the set Fine Feathers I bought it right away.  I absolutely love the images and will probably hold on to this one forever.

A little thank you

I used to be so good about adding a little thank you to my orders.  Then I had a forth child and it seems like a lot of extra went out the window:(  so I a working had to creep back the ones I can and accept that I can't do everything.  
Well, this month I was actually able to do it.  So I made up this cute little sour cream containers added a little candy inside and there you have it.  

My goal is to really work on showing my customers and downline how important they are to me.  I always have the best intention:)

Secret Garden

Here is the card I did for club this month...I have to be honest I saw a very similar one on Pinterest and just went with it!  Why reinvent the wheel if it works:)  
I really like this set, secret garden(and my customers really like the framelits) so it will be sad to see them go.  But if you have gotten your eyes on the new catalog, all these stamps will soon be a thought of the past.  There are SO MANY new cute stamps, you won't remember you missed these!

a little fishy...

I am so sad to see some of our stamps go, and as much as I hardly used this one...it is SO CUTE!  I filled this little jar with goldfish crackers, then we made this little shaker card tag to fit right over the top.  I love this color combo!  So bright and happy!!
This would be a great favor for a swim or beach party!  Be sure to check back tomorrow to see some more projects with the retiring stamp sets!
