You should already have the retired list in your hand.  If you don't please let me know and I'll get one to you asap.  Just remember that the accessories are on a "while supplies last" basis.  There are lots of things that are already gone.  For instance, I wanted to stock up on the retiring in colors.  I love the pastels but when I tried to order them a couple of them were already gone.  So be sure to see if there's something that you want and get it ordered before it's gone. 
However, the stamp sets will be available until May 30th so you can still get any of them that you want.  Here's one of my favorites that is retiring.  Stippled Blossoms.  It makes the most beautiful cards.  I won't be getting rid of this stamp set but we won't be using it in class.  Well, I guess we could use it in the May class.

Here's the first sample of a special class that I will be offering.  Masculine cards.  Don't we always need more Guy cards.  Here's your chance to stock up.  You'll be making 12 cards (2 each of 6 designs) with envelopes.  You will also get the DSP pack "Adventure Bound"  I'll be using those stacks to cut paper for this class but you'll enough paper left to make a ton more cards.  So if you want manly card come to this class.  I will post more pictures once in a while.  The class is May 21st but you must RSVP by May 14th so that I can get the supplies ordered.

I went to Lansing to Ronda Wade's Creative Retreat last weekend.  I had a great time and actually did get some scrapbooking done.  She always offers a few classes and I took a couple.  I'll show you the cards some time.  But right now look at the goodies that we all got from her.  There was more stuff than this in the bag but I didn't get a picture of everything.  I'm thinking that I should do this sometime.  What do you think?  Would you like a creative weekend.

Well, I finally made it through the retired list and while there's some things on there that I'm really going to miss it's not to bad.  Two of my favorite stamp sets are listed.  Petite Pairs and Stippled Blossoms.  But probably my biggest disappointment is two of the punches.  The Modern Label punch and the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border.  The Modern Label punch layers so perfectly with the Word Window Punch that I use it a lot.  And the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border is my go to item when I don't have ribbon in the right color.  I just hope there's something in the new catalog that I'll like as well as these two. 
Except for the stamp sets everything on the retired list is "while supplies last" so if there's something that you really want you'd better get your order in right away.  You can always order online by clicking the "shop now" button and if you do be sure to use the hostess code.

Creative Retreat

I went to Lansing this past weekend for Ronda Wade's creative retreat.  Mostly it's a weekend for crafting whatever you want but I usually just do a lot of talking and eating.  But I did take a couple of classes.  Come to card class on Thurs and see all the cool things that I made.  I didn't make the card pictured but I thought that it was really cool.  And I do have this stamp set so I may have to try and make it.  It's just a really cool card for a card.  Or, of course, it would be great for anyone who loves to travel.
