This challenge theme has been given to us by eliak. Thanks Lisa!
This week we are making retirement cards. There are not many stamps directly related to this theme, so creativity is required. Be sure to check out the samples this week. They are awesome!
Not know of anyone retiring from a job? Get creative with this theme. Make a retirement party invitation for the SU stamps sets that are leaving the catty. Make a card for an elementary student who is going to middle school and has to hang up his/her safety patrol belt (remember those things?) How about a card to help hubby retire those old ratty sweatshirts? Have fun with this challenge! Think about things that have to come to an END.
Please put LSC63 in the keyword box when uploading!

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!
Ok Jen...the only correlation I can even begin to concieve is the butt is the 'end'?....you are right...you are NOT good at giving clues...ROFL here! This is funny, however, and hopefully some of the non-stalkers will be curious enough to join us and find out what we are all about.
Oh well, a real challenge here, I will give it a try next week, hopefully. Thanks for being so much fun!
This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
Have been wanting to make a retirement card for my niece who retired a few months ago from the Army. This is the perfect challenge... just the push I needed! Thanks, Jen. (Is it cheating to start tonight? Hey it's Friday somewhere.....)
Jen, this is too perfect for me - my sister retires in July - from the shoe dept. at K-Mart after 40 years -- now, Heather, you just know I gotta case your card for her if not this challenge - it's so perfect for her! OK, I'll make something else - but I gotta case those shoes in July! Fun theme!
If you open someone's card, you must have liked it...please leave a comment to encourage them!
Hmmmmmmmmmm. Have to put on my thinking cap. Seen the cat butt thing last night when I was silently stalking. I have three cats and aside for one of them having a pink foot from ink...I wasn't really sure about the butt part. No butt prints here!!!!
My niece "retired" from the Army a few months ago. With Memorial Day this month thought I would make her a "retirement/thank you" card. She was in Iraq for close to a year and is one feisty lady. We are all pretty darn proud of her!
Just a note here that I didn't include with the description with the card..
The red cardstock with the simply circles.. it looks like versamark but was actually about my 4th or 5th attempt at bleaching. So not only did the bleaching technique not work for me.. the stamped image got DARKER!! How bad am I??? lol
