I hope you had a great weekend. In our neck of the woods, it was uncharacteristically warm and sunny, so between baseball/softball and Mother's Day, it was a terrific weekend!
As we're counting down the final weeks before some favorite stamps and accessories retire, I thought I'd focus most of my efforts on retiring items. Here are a few things I was working on this weekend:
Here's Cottage Garden, a favorite which will be retiring at the end of May. Love that tag stamp!
Tiny Teacup is a single stamp ("a la carte") which will retire on May 31. It's got a sentiment "Hello" attached, but I inked just the cup for this project.
Grunge Rock (another retiree) is the stamp set I used for this final project. What is marketed as a set for the tween/teen set, I've had a lot of success using it for grown men, too! I love the distressed look of its images and the useful diamond pattern stamp (you can see it in the lower left corner).
You can see a sliver of the Lattice Bigz die in this picture; I love how versatile it is (nothing on this card is retiring -- phew!)!
