Touch of Nature Trio

At the beginning of the month I offered my customers the chance to participate in a contest guessing 30 stamp sets that they thought would be retiring from this catalog. The 3rd place prize was a set of 3 cards made from my favorite retiring stamp sets along with 1/2 sheet of each of the retiring In Colors. Since the winners have now been awarded their prizes, I figured it was OK to share these here. Everything, right down to the embellishments will be retiring after August 10th.
The Touch of Nature set is so pretty and detailed it has always been a favorite of mine to watercolor. And....what will I ever do without the Weathered background? I especially loved to use it in combination with my soon to be departed Print Pattern background.
I'm wiping away tears just thinking about not being able to get more Soft Sky card stock and the double stitched ribbons...OK, so maybe I'm being a bit overly dramatic, but these truly are some of my favorites, and I will be sad to see them go. However, it is exciting to think about what will be coming in the next catalog to replace it!

Stamps: Touch of Nature, Weathered & Print Pattern backgrounds, It's Your Birthday
Card stock: Soft Sky, Groovy Guava, River Rock & Very Vanilla
Ink: Soft Sky, River Rock, Black Stazon & various inks to watercolor
Accessories: Antique Brass Hodge Podge Hardware, Double stitched ribbon

I need to go finish cutting card stock for my eScape Card Class I am having tomorrow. Remember...put down the phone, turn off the computer, and break free from the 'e'! That means NO internet, texting, etc...all day tomorrow!!! Or the stampin' police will be coming for you! ;-) Have a good one!
