Hello Crafty Friends! Welcome to the Retired Annual Catalog blog hop!
It’s been a fun month! Spring has finally arrived in Omaha and I’ve been working on the garden and patio just so I can be outside and enjoying the warmth and sunshine! Of course, in true Midwest fashion, we are scheduled to have rain for almost a whole week. So, I’m gonna enjoy what I can while I can.
I had to force myself to come inside to create this card, but it was inspired by some of the flowers I planted yesterday with our youngest grand baby. She’s 3 and she had so much fun wearing her brand new gardener’s gloves and getting permission to play in the dirt! lol
This set was my favorite from the retiring catalog, and I’m terribly sad it’s going away. I had overlooked this set many times and when I finally noticed it, it became a staple in my collection. Now, I guess I will have to find a new favorite set in the 2023-24 Annual catalog.
The stamp set has a postal stamp image and I wanted to make this card look a little like a postcard, without going overboard. Setting the flowers in the center and making them the focal point helped give it the feel I was hoping for. The Splendid Day Designer Series Paper added a great accent, but wasn’t too much that it overtook the card. I had some very old Rhinestone Jewels that retired about 3 years ago and I figured I would go ahead and use these up finally. Yeah, I might need an intervention for my craft hoarding issues! haha
I love So Saffron and Mint Macaron, and together they really say Spring is here. They are part of the Retired Annual Catalog and I wanted to give them a fun send off. I will be keeping them in my collection, just in case they are ever called back.
I hope that you enjoyed this stop on your hop and are excited for the next project in the series. If you’d like to see the last blog hop, click here!
