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

OH HAPPY DAY!

SUO Blog challenge today is for butterflies.......and I can say Oh Happy Day....because SU brought this beautiful butterfly back this year in their BEST of 25 YEARS series, available NOW!  Back in the day, this butterfly was much larger, and I actually like this perfect size much better!  This was actually one of the cards I created for a recent color challenge but ended up using a different card.....so it came in handy now - These are some pretty funky colors together, no??  I usually RUN from Melon Mambo, but it looks nice here in a mini dose with accent on the Eggplant instead.....and River Rock is just sad, well you know what they say, over all these discontinued stamps, and inks, and papers, they say, CRY ME A RIVER, BUILD ME A BRIDGE, and GET OVER IT~~It's about time I stop crying now over what I have to say goodbye to, and start smiling over what I get to say HELLO to!! Like Blushing BRIDE is back, and that sure makes me SMILE!  And a new catty is ON THE WAY!! That's all for now folks...Until next time, no more tears, and keep on stampin'!
