“May the blessing of Light be on you, light without and light within…”
Hello Stamping Friends! It rained yesterday morning so I was finally able to sit down and make some cards. A friend, Sister Elizabeth, had asked me to make a card for her parish priest, who is retiring, so this is the card I made for her. It was the same lay-out as another card I had made earlier this Spring, which was a CASE from Ann Schach. This card uses an old set, Crosses of Hope, along with the Petal Palette set and some Gorgeous Grunge. Cardstock colors are Sweet Sugarplum and Night of Navy. The inside sentiment says “Congratulations on your Retirement” from the Wild About Flowers Stamp Set.
Have a peaceful day, xo Dawn
“Don’t simply retire from something; have something to retire to.”
I got a good laugh the other day when I went to visit a friend. She had read our blog that morning and thought I was talking about a “retired set” when I mentioned the “retirement set” of Wild About Flowers stamps. (Same card as this but it said “You’ll be missed.”) So, I made these cards to clear things up (added a little bling with the tiniest pearls). It truly is a set of stamps to make retirement cards!
“We know what we are but not what we may be.”
My husband requested that I get a retirement stamp set, and of course, I was happy to oblige! This is the new “Wild About Flowers” set. This is a “two step” stamp, but I went a little wild and used three stamps for the flowers on this clean and simple 4″ x 4″ card. : ) Cardstock is Very Vanilla and Delightful Dijon and Inks are Dijon and Mint Macaron.
And the winner of our Fourth of July Blog Candy is: (I’m drawing the name from a hat as I type….)

Congratulations Nancy! I will get the Dictionary stamp set out to you within the next couple of days. : )
