My room is almost clean so it's time to play!
No one likes free stuff....said no one EVER.

Poof! And then it was May!

Wow Spring time is in full swing and we even mowed the lawn in April instead of shoveling snow!  (That is pretty exciting in good 'ol Minnesota.) 

So have you checked out the Retiring List  yet?  I thought I would take this time to show you a few ideas from some of my favorite retiring stamp sets.  Ready?  Let's take a look:

First up - Swallowtail.  Oh Swallowtail how beautiful you are!  We had fun with the butterfly stamping on coasters not too long ago!

Or how about Blended Bloom - This flower was so much fun coloring and so versatile!  I have used this flower for birthdays, sympathy or just because!

Or how about a great word set when you just need the right phrase?  How about one of my favorites... Feel Goods!  I found this card on Pinterest by a talented lady named Tamra Davis.  Isn't it gorgeous yet oh so simple?  What do you thing?

Do you recognize the trees on this one?  If you do and share, you may just get a treat from me!  (And would love to know if you are just as excited that this set is in the new Catty?!?)  :)

And last but certainly not least, Perfect Pennants.  My favorite inspiration is utilizing Pinterest by entering a stamp set in the search option I would like to use and.... Viola!....You have hundreds, sometimes thousands of ideas right at your finger tips!  This was another Pinterest find by Mary Bush:

This layout is so easy to replicate with minimal supplies.  Change the color and you have another way to use this too!  What do you think?  Any of these sets catch your eye that did not before?  I hope so because I know it inspires me to go make some cards!  Well technically there is some kind of special holiday this weekend so I have a reason too!   Would love to see what you are coming up with celebrating those ladies we call our Mothers!

Last but not least, a congrats to Heidi F for winning the Paper Pumpkin challenge from last week!  You won a bonus Wreath kit!

Until next time - happy stampin!!!
