Hello, Friend! (and goodbye to a fabulous stamp set!)

Have I really not posted since Tax Day? Oops - sorry about that! Time is flying and I'm not sure I'm okay with how fast the days are moving.

 Although this card says "hello, friend", it's really "goodbye old friend, we barely knew ya." Yep, this beautiful sunflower stamp set with matching dies is retiring. As a Kansas girl, it's hard to let it go but I know great things are coming in the catalog so here's a final look.

Rather than going with coloring in a traditional sunflower, I stamped with cobalt on azul and die cut the sunflower out. I love it popped up over the school-lined paper that has smaller sunflowers stamped in fern ink and layered on fern cardstock. The papaya and cobalt layers provide the perfect pop of color to pull everything together. It's a happy and fun card and was my swap card for April. :)
 Have a wonderfully creative day!!

oh - and don't forget to pick up the retiring items in my webstore:
