Out With the Old!

Welcome to the May Pals Blog Hop. This is the first hop on our new day - the 2nd Wednesday of the month. Before we celebrate the release of the new Stampin' Up! catalog next month, we want to take time to say goodbye to our favorite retiring products. This month we are showcasing projects that feature stamps or accessories that are retiring along with the 2013-14 Idea Book and Catalog.  The last date for ordering Retiring Items is June 4, 2014, or until supplies last.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from #19 Marlene Heringer at So Many Toys So Little Time on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog.

I am saying good-bye to the 2012-2014 In Colors: Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals Raspberry Ripple and Summer Starfruit. These cards were inspired by the gift bags on page 15 of May-June Issue of Stampin' Success.

The stamp sets used are Gorgeous Grunge, Really Good Greetings and the retiring Happy Day.

The next stop is #20 Lynn Kolcun at Stamping With Avery's Owlery on the Pals Blog Hop!

Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you next month.
