I love the bugs…

Actually, I’m really not a fan of bugs in general, but I do love the cute little “bugs” in the retiring Stampin’ Up level one hostess stamp set called “love bug”. It is a very cute set that I didn’t use this set more often… too many stamps, too little time. Lol! It’s not too late to get some of your favorite stamp sets that are on the retiring list.

Say it isn’t so…

In less than two weeks we’ll say goodbye to some of our favorite Stampin’ Up stamp sets… including this one called Garden Whimsy. I know it is inevitable each year that I’ll have to say so long to a few of my favorites, but it doesn’t make it any easier. So dramatic, huh? Honestly there are so many great new stamp sets and items in the new catalog that in another couple of weeks I won’t even remember the names of the sets we lost. BUT if there is a stamp set or two you just have to have be sure to get it now before time runs out. You can see the list of retiring stamps here. To see what is left of the retiring accessories shop in my store here. Some of these items including retiring cardstock, ink pads and ink refills are going fast. In other news, I’m making a new start of my own with a new job that I started yesterday. I’m officially no longer a reporter and instead I am a rental agent. I think I will really like it… although it is Saturday and I will soon have to get ready to go

Wow… it’s been a long time!

Hi there! Remember me? I apologize for being so out of touch lately. Do you ever find that once you get out of the routine of something it is so hard to get back into it? Well, that is what happened here with the little blog. I kept saying “I’m going to update, I’m going to update,” but it just never happened. So even though I don’t have anything really new to share with you today, I decided to post anyway. This card is actually one I made months ago. Nothing too spectacular, but I think it came out cute. I was playing with the Chic Boutique stamp set — too cute. I do have lots of news for you, though. As you know we are now into the six month of the year (crazy, huh?) and that means the Stampin’ Up last chance list is out. You can check it out here. You have until June 30 to get any of the stamps sets off this list and then they are gone forever. There are also last chance lists for the decor elements and for retiring accessories. You can see those here and here. Don’t panic with those lists
