RS161 Classic Birthday


Happy Wednesday, everyone!  Did you get a look at Stampin’ Up!’s retiring list?  Oh my….I would say almost 50% of my stamp sets are going away!  Boohoo!  I guess we need room for more new goodies, but ouch, it hurts!

I am always in need of masculine cards, so I took the RetroSketches sketch:

and paired it up with the fun Guy Greetings set from the mini catalog to make this note card for my BIL:

I stamped directly onto the Adventure Bound DSP in Early Espresso ink,  and used Cajun Craze ink and Candy Dots for a masculine contrast.  And since this card is getting sent off, I wanted to create another one for my sample box, and I used the retiring Apothecary Accents die to make my top panel:

I made a little banner with the Zigzag embossing folder…I love this cool look!


Enjoy your day!

Cassidy and I were reading a book on her bed earlier this week, in the hopes she would take a nap.  Well, guess who fell asleep first!?  Grammy!  But after a few minutes of my catnap, I heard some rustling and ruching around and then quiet…….and this is what I saw when I very carefully got up:


A pile of pillows on the floor between the bed and the wall, and she was out like a light!

Great cards today - I love those old jalopies! Great pic of Cassidy too, and she looks as comfy as can be! Put a book in front of me, and I'm out like a light in 10 minutes too! LOL

I love these cards though I have to say I the first is my fav- the layered topper finishes it perfectly for me. Yay naps! :)
