Stampin' Addicts Retiring Blog Hop - Little Friends

Welcome to Stampin' Addicts retiring stamps blog hop!!  We will be showcasing 13 of our most loved retiring stamp sets from the 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! Catalog.

If you are hopping in order you just came from Katherine's Magical Inkery Tour where she is featuring the set Kindness Matters .. didn't you just love her projects??  If you started here no worries at the bottom of this post there is the next link and we are all connected so you won't miss any of the greats projects!!

I decided I want to work with Little Friends as it's such a cute little set!!  It has been one of my favorites to use my water color crayons which are also retiring (sob)!!

This first card uses the little boy image .. cute!!  I kept this one pretty simple as it is more of a masculine card.  I currently do not have a saying attached to it as I'm not sure who will get this lovely card!!

 My  second card is very cheery ...perfect for a thinking of you card so I added the sentiment so many smiles. Who would have thought Tangerine Tango and Perfect Plum would look good together!!  This card is slightly smaller and measures 5x3.

The last project I have to share with you is a little gift box with a mini 3x3 tag card. Who doesn't love this image!?  I've had a puppy or two who has done this same thing with my kiddos.

I hope you enjoyed my projects; I know I enjoyed making them!!  Sad to see this set go but since I keep ALL my stamp sets I'll still have it.  Be sure to get yours before they are no longer available!!

The next stop on the hop is Adriana's escape2stamp where she has made some awesome projects using another one of favorite sets Need for Speed.  Happy Stamping!!

Happy 13th Birthday!

Today my youngest turns Thirteen!  He's a pretty cool kid (if I say so myself!) and likes his cards to be amped up!  So this was his non traditional birthday card.  The main skull images and the saying are not Stampin' Up and I have had them forever so not sure where I got them.  Everything else is though including the grey splatter which is from the set Extreme Elements.  I grunged up the edges to make it more masculine looking.  My son thought it was awesome so mission accomplished!!  Happy Stamping!
