Retiring Stamp Class

Before I get into today's post I want to say that my thoughts and prayers are with all those in Oklahoma.  Such an awful thing and so devastating for all those affected and the first responders as well.  May they know the comfort and peace that only God can give at a time like this.  Dear Lord may you wrap your arms around all those who are hurting and please help them through the very difficult days that are ahead.  Please help us to be mindful and thankful for all the things we take for granted.  Amen.

I have a "retiring" stamp class tonight.  We are using mostly all retiring products tonight other than a couple of ink pads.  After making these cards I realized how sorry I am to see these sets retire.  I'm thinking a couple of them may stay in my "keep" stash.  Ok, who am I kidding I think all 5 of them will.  ;)

The first one here uses Circle Circus with retiring colors Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy and Certainly Celery.  The other one uses the stamp Just Thinking and is currently in the Spring catalog, but will not be available after May 31.  The colors used are Riding Hood Red and More Mustard which are both retiring ast well.  Notice the brads in the corner?  Yup, those are going to be gone as well.

This first one uses the set Raining Flowers.  This set has so many nice pieces for making all kinds of flowers and leaves.  The colors are Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Lucky Limeade which are retiring and then I threw in some Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant which are both sticking around.  The words are from the set Word Play which is retiring. :(  That set has so many nice words in it.  I used it as well on the above card with the Thanks a Million.  You really should have this set in your collection.  The other card here is made with the Just Believe stamp set.  This set is also another great set.  I really like the words in this set that say "Somethings have to be believed to be seen."  Such a great set with images and words.  The Word Window Punch is retiring as is the Pretty in Pink ribbon.  The green I used is Gumball Green and is an In Color and will be sticking around for another year.  I did case this card from HEREPlease note that the Word Window punch is not retiring.  Thanks to a good customer for keeping me on my toes.  Thanks Becky Hughey!
Well I hope my ladies enjoy making these tonight and if you couldn't make it to the class tonight you can still order these products from my website and if you order them by May 30 and use hostess code 6AA96VQP when you check out you will get your name in for the Mystery Hostess online party.  You must use the code to be eligible to be in the drawing.
Take care and happy stamping!
