A Retirement Hug with Pals Paper Arts #135

I made this card for a friend in mind who is deployed  at the moment.  I felt the wonderful hug tells a story without requiring a sentiment.  Time is quickly coming for the retirement of this stamp and the paper.  It instantly became my favorite and I know another will quickly replace it. =)

The hug is a sweet send off as this stamp officially retires as of June 1st and it’s perfect for the last Pals Paper Arts card challenge for the month of May.  I hope you are lucky enough to buy it before it goes away.  Click on the tree below to check out the remaining items on this year’s retirement list.


If you haven’t had a chance to look at the RETIRING ACCESSORIES or RETIRING STAMPS, click on each item, print them out and grab your laptop and open up the catalog.  Then sit back in your comfy chair or sofa with a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate and take a look at the items retiring on May 31st.  Enjoy!
