I think sometimes masculine cards are the hardest for me to make. I reached to a retired set to make this. I also used my gel pens to accent it. I found out at the begining of the week that Brilliant Blue is one of the many blue colors Stampin' Up is retiring in July. I will miss the blues, and look forward to the new colors, and playing with the new combos that can be made. I am glad Stampin' Up gave us some time to plan ahead, instead of waiting until the time was right upon us to announce such a change. I am glad Baja Breeze is coming back. They are going to only have 45 colors in July instead of the 60 or so colors we have now. I will miss the range of purples too. It seems that the new colors are warmer and bolder than before. I wonder if it seems that way to anyone else out there? It was deffinately warmer here in our part of Alaska today. It was 16 degrees above zero with the sun shining and no wind. Our Jack Russell Terrier puppy, loved getting out and about, and it was warm enough that I didn't mind taking him! Most weekends this school year have been stormy and windy... it was quite a blessing to have a nice, pretty day and not be "stuck inside". I did do some other stamping, but I will post that next time, that way you have something to come back for! Happy Stamping!
