Wow, what a day yesterday was with the start of the Retiring list! I gather that Stampin’ Up! had some pretty major technical issues. Huge apologies if any of you got caught up in that. It all seems to sorted now, though – but some items are disappearing FAST! As predicted, the In Colours have gone in terms of reinkers, and are on their way out in ink pads, too. My wish would be (if I had any wishes, of course) that there were more stock of the retiring products, and that technology was always kind to us and never had meltdowns!
Also I have an update – sadly, the news about retiring stamps being available into May is not correct for Europe, so please don’t wait if there are stamps on the list that you want. Some are already gone!
Right, and now to happier news – a card share 🙂
I made two of these cards a little while ago, for two ladies I know who had birthdays!
I used the gorgeous gold-foiled balloon sheet from the Birthday Bash Designer Series Papers (which will also be retiring, I’m pretty sure, so if you want it, add it to your order) and the Perfect Pennants stamp set for the Make a Wish sentiment.
Here are the two cards together, plus a sneak peek of another one which I have yet to share with you:
And here’s the @sosocial sentiment stamped inside:
Love it! Sadly, the @SoSocial stamp set is retiring, so if you want it, you need to grab it before it is gone!
I love the sequin trim, too. Do leave me a message and let me know what you think, and I will be back with another project tomorrow. I know, right, three projects in three days?! I spoil you! *laughs*
Before I go, here are this week’s Weekly Deals:
Not quite so mad many this week, but if there are not enough deals on the retiring list for you, then I’m afraid there really is no helping you! Enjoy!
