Default TLC122: The business of saying goodbye...

While we are waiting for the new catalogs to arrive, let's say goodbye to some of our retiring favorites. The "twist"? Create a card that fits in a business size envelope...you know, the long ones.

So create a long card using retiring stamps or colors or accessories.

Here's one from 2 years ago(!) from my gallery.
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=11007


Have fun!

Use keyword TLC122 when you upload.

Fun idea. Maybe I'll get to stamp today as my catalog isn't coming today (I checked the post office on our walk! lol).

I have not done a card of this size either. I can't wait. Question are we to use something that is retiring or is this just a goodby card for anyone like I will miss you??

The challenge is to use anything that is retiring.

Well I did not realize that Saterdays challenge would apply to todays challenge also! I will try to make another card later but I think with my husband, my 3 children and I being sick it might not happen!
Thanks for looking!

I haven't asked it there is any kind of pretty rose that is in the new catalog (haven't gotten one yet-I'm grumbling) because they have retired two of the prettiest we've had Mixed Bouquet and Roses in Winter. So, I am using this one from Mixed Bouquet.

My card

How fun! Now that the post office is getting to be such a stickler on envelope sizes, this size card is great! I'll get on this when I get home. Thanks, Beth.

Okay, this sounds like a fine challenge. I haven't made any this size before, so I don't know what it will look like!

Here's my card. I love it, even if I do say so myself. (I'm such a dork)
