Thank you for joining us for the May Pals Blog Hop and our annual retirement party! It’s time to say goodbye to stamps and accessories that will not be available in the new 2013-14 Stampin’ Up!catalog. Although it’s always sad to see wonderful products retire, it is exciting to think about all of the new products that will soon be available. So enjoy the farewell tour for our favorite retiring products – and remember you have until June 3rd to order from the retiring product lists.
You should have just left stop number 19 on the Pals Hop – Diane Roberts at Score at Four and a Quarter. If so, you are in the right spot. If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.
Just in case this is the first time you’ve visited me, I serve on active duty with the Air Force for the last 23 years. I am Livin’ the Dream! I look forward to the day that I can retire and commit ALL my time making cards and working on my scrapbooks.
I am currently deployed and with each new post I talk about the deployment life from my perspective. I pretty much work 12 or more hours a day, but the time for me is flying by… I don’t know if it’s because of all the hours I put in or because this time around (3rd deployment) I’m making cards and finding others here who enjoy doing it too! =)
This is the first card I make on this deployment. One of our warehouse logistician’s became a first time uncle and greeting cards are a premium around here, so I used this opportunity to use one of my favorite retiring stamp sets, Moving Forward.
He will be sending this card off to the new parents and he is very excited to meet his nephew in five months and three weeks (but who’s counting)… LoL.
This stamp set is part of the Making a Difference program which Stampin’ Up! made exclusively for the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). You can read more about the program here or view the first time I used the set here.
The next stop is Katy McGloin at Just Fun Stamping, stop number 21 on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting – and I hope to see you next month!
