One of the hardest things every year is saying "So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye" (name that movie) to the retiring stamp sets. Well that, and not getting so caught up in the exciting new things that we neglect to say a proper goodbye before they are gone. So, I dragged myself away from the box that the man in brown brought yesterday and focused on one of my favorites from the Occasions catalog, the Special Reason stamp set.
You may have noticed, I'm also saying goodbye to the Pop of Pink Specialty DSP, but also yelling HELLOOOO to the Lemon Lime Twist new In Color! I couldn't resist, because it looks so fabulous with the black & white!
Now if you've followed my blog for any length of time, you know that I'm not a fan of chevron prints. I just couldn't hop on the chevron bandwagon when it came by, because it's too "busy" for my taste. However, in small doses it can be quite lovely, as seen on this card!
PRODUCT NOTES: As of this post, the Pop of Pink Specialty DSP was still available at 40% off. The Stylish Stems Framelits are sold out. The Special Reason stamp sets (clear-mount and wood-mount) are guaranteed through May 22. The Lemon Lime Twist ink & cardstock, and Glitter Enamel Dots start June 1st, but the dots have been wildly popular with the demo preorder, and are back ordered already. (See? It pays to be a demo, so you can get your mitts on the goodies first! Ask me how.)
