Don’t Miss the Sunset!

Have you always seen the sunset over the ocean, or over a mountain, or a piece of farmland?  Sunsets are God’s way of telling you that things have come to an end.  Sometimes that end is only temporary… after all, the sun comes back up each morning.  But, sometimes, those sunsets mean that things will never be the same again.  Some things, even good things, must unfortunately come to an end.

I am sad to say, the end is almost here for the products retiring from the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog as well as the 2017 Occasions Catalog.


What will you miss the most?

I will miss the Botanical dies, Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set, and Watermelon Wonder!

Here are a few cards made with with these things.

Now… here is where I tell you that none of these were entirely my idea.  But, two of them – the one with Bella the Dog and the one with the flowers – I have now idea who did the original ones because their was no watermark on it.  So, if they look very similar to something you have done, please let me know so that I can credit you…  🙂  The Ombre Balloon card was inspired by Becky Roberts and the Thanks card was my idea based on a Seize the Sketch card sketch.

Just thing about all the beautiful things you can do with these sets.  Imagine combining all three into one card!  That would be great!

What have you done with your favorite retiree?  Post it int he comments below so we can all enjoy your creations!

Of course… once these are gone.. there will be new ones.  See, the end is not always bad.

Until next time… keep it simple, Stampers!

🙂  Joanne
