Now I just need to come up with 2 more workshop-caliber cards. I'm thinking something with my all-time favorite Do the Hula, and also maybe something with Petal Prints and French Script. Those 3 sets retiring probably hurt the most.

I decided I might actually get something together in terms of holding a "retirement party" for the stamp sets. I looked at my sad box full of retiring sets and saw Balmy Breezes. I got in January and have only used it once or twice! I thought, "Hey, that would work well for a Father's Day card". So that's where I began, I decided to throw in a little bit of my favorite soon to be out-colour. I coloured the palm tree with markers. I hate leaving a blank sky, but it's a real pain to colour it. So I looked over to my cd holder of background stamps, Linen practically jumped off. I inked up the background stamp in the middle, placed the coloured image onto it, and did the "finger-walking" method of pressure. I actually got surprisingly even coverage.
