Fond Farewell to Some Favorite Friends

Have I mentioned that the retiring list is out yet and you only have until June 3, 2013, to order anything from it?  I thought maybe I had...
From Millan.Net
In that vein, I have various cards from my "stash" that showcase some of these sets.  So without further ado, I begin my final countdown of favorite cards, in no particular order.  (This will be ongoing for a few days, just so you know.)

Sweet Floral
 Stamped in Lucky Limeade with Island Indigo highlights.
(This card was designed by my good friend Cindy Westerink but stamped by me.)
 
Bordering on Romance
 (I even watercolored the Wisteria one above!)
 From Millan.Net

I hand-cut those large flowers and sponged the edges with Blushing Bride ink.  I told you I like to "fussy cut"!
 
Circle Circus
 So versatile for everything!

Daring Adventure

I'll be back with lots more samples in the days to come.  Stay tuned!

Until next time...

I wanted to show you this clever and adorable gift I got from my friend Sara. 
Isn't it a great idea?  Sara used the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper, which was put in a standard type frame.  The ribbon is on the "outside" of the frame (so it doesn't get smashed).  When I have something that I need to order, I just write on it with a dry erase marker.  No more little notes lying around my desk top getting misplaced.  I love it!

It's Banner Time!


From Millan.Net
Check the list out to see if your favorite stamps or accessories are there and order them before they are no longer available!  Don't panic - you have a little more time, but not much!

 Millan.Net
I have another banner to show you today.  My stamping buddies and I got together early this month and each of us made a banner similar to this.  We were inspired by one that Shelli Gardner had done and posted on her blog.  You can see Shelli's banner HERE.
The colors I used are Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Crumb Cake with a little Always Artichoke added.  (My living room furniture is about that shade of green, so I figured if I ever wanted to put this up in the living room, I wanted it to coordinate.)

Here are close-ups of each panel.  The size of these is about 5" by 7".  I've listed the stamp sets that I used on each panel under the picture.  I think they're pretty self-explanatory, but if you have any questions, just pop me an e-mail and I'll try to answer your question as best I can!
 Morning Post Alphabet and Loving Thoughts

Swallowtail and French Foliage

 Feel Goods

 No actual stamp set but I did use the First Edition Specialty DSP, Ovals Collection Framelits, Tea Lace Paper Doilies, Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die, Delicate Doilies Sizzlits, Elegant Butterfly Punch.

 The background piece is from the Natural Composition Specialty DSP - and since the design was the music staff, I thought that was appropriate for me.  Also used the Dress Up Framelits Die, Adorning Accents Edgelits, Creative Elements, Paper Daisies (retiring), 5/8" Vanilla Flower Trim (also retiring).

Hope you've enjoyed checking out my latest banner project!  Once you get started on these, it's hard to stop!  Try it and you'll see what I mean.

Until next time...
