CRY ME A RIVER.....

Here's the stamp set to which I say, "I can't get over losing you...." - I still remember the day SU handed this stamp set out to all attendees at Leadership....it's embarrassing to admit this, but I actually cried tears of joy.....and cards danced in my head all the way home....if you were to peruse my SU gallery back a ways, I had a hard time using anything else.....so sad, sad, sad, day for me when I saw it on the discontinued list.  How could they do this to me?  I am broken-hearted.  In the depths of despair.  Crying a river......but hey, I said this before and I'll say it again, it's time to BUILD ME A BRIDGE, and get OVER it.  There will be new stamps on the horizon.  We have a whole new catalog FULL of them.  Life will go on.....the sun will still rise, and the sun will still set.  I'm trying my friends, but it ain't easy.  At any rate, I can promise you this is one stamp you will NOT see at my yard sale of discontinued sets.  And it just might pop up in my gallery every once in a while too......make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other's gold.  Will the artist who created this set PALEAAZE make some more like it????  Until next time..........Karen

I is always sad to see old favorite retire. I hope there will be a new set that you love as much. Looking forward to seeing the new catalog. (oh the temptations!)

What a beautiful card. I, too am not pleased that the stamp is being discontinued. Not being a Demonstrator any more means that I can still use it! lol Thank you for the inspiration!

Oh Karen, I've cried tears of disbelief when I saw this stamp sets being ditched, I just don't understand why, why, why they (who ever "they" are)decided to eliminate this and all the other beautiful sets, I feel so sorry for the new stampers, the new comers who are just starting, they will never enjoy making cards with stamps sets like "Nature Walk" or "Christmas Lodge", "Elements of Style", "French Foliage", and so many others that are gorgeous and fantastic to water color, which is my favorite medium. I fortunately own several of this retiring beauties but like I said, the new stampers are the ones missing out big time.
Thank you for this beautiful tribute to a beautiful stamp set.

I say, "cry me a river" as well. What a shame to retire this set. Your card is seriously beautiful.

When I see this set, I always think of you Karen!! I think you should have earned extra commission on all of them you have sold over the years, lol!! This is another stunner, my friend!

AMEN to what you said! I hope this artist has more sets in the works for SU, because they are the BEST there is!!!

I agree Karen- the retirement of this set breaks my heart but I love all of the cards that you have created with it!! You have such a special way of coloring your flowers and I love your elegant style!! I, too will always have this set in my collection (in fact, I went ahead and bought it in wood and clear - I know, excessive behavior :-)) So pleased to be able to design along with you at SUO Challenges- have a wonderful week!!
