Just Kidding.....

I've been absent so long, I've forgotten how to blog! Not really, but it sure seems like it. We just got home from visiting family in Tennessee and searching for a place to retire to, and we found it! Needless to say, sorting through forty years' worth of accumulated things and packing what we absolutely must keep is going to be a huge task over the next few months (my craft room alone is going to be a Herculean task), so I may continue to post sporadically. Please bear with me! Once the dust settles after our move, I'm sure I'll be back to posting on a regular basis.....unless I get too distracted by this gorgeous view out my window!

Speaking of retirment, the Stampin' Up! Retirement List is out and, as usual, I am distraught over some of the things going away forever, and then giddy with anticipation over the new things that will be coming soon in the annual catalog. I'm so conflicted! This tidbit is straight from the home office:

*Note: Due to high demand for retiring stamps, we'll keep producing retiring stamps until May 26 (not accessories - accessories are only while supplies last)
So, if there is an embellishment or tool you've been wanting, better get it NOW before the supplies are exhausted!  BTW, Stampin' Addicts will be be having a blog hop featuring the retiring stamp sets, so be sure to check back here Friday, May 1st!

This card was made with the new Just Kidding photopolymer stamp set, which is ridiculously cute and funny! I did use some retired DSP From the Fresh Prints DSP Stack, and retired Real Red Satin Woven Ribbon ribbon which, as of today, is still on the Clearance Rack for only $2.79 for 10 yds! Here's the rest of the stamp set:

*Practicing my Southern accent*
Hope y'all are having a nice Spring, those of you who aren't still getting snowed on!
