Default WT115 - Going, Going, Gone

Only one month left before the huge list of Stampin Up's retirement sets is gone! Lots of my faves are on that list...some really great sets. I'm sad to see them go but I just have to think, Stampin Up must have a really great upcoming line-up just waiting to be revealed!

This week the challenge is to find Way's to Use the retiring sets. For those of you who are demos, get a little more use of them before they retire, add a little inspiration to the gallery, maybe even convince a few people that they really do need that set! If you would like to see the list of retiring stamp sets, here it is ... Going Out in Style. If you don't have any of these sets, you may still play along by using another company's retirement list sets.

Please remember to put WT115 in your keywords section and post a link back here! We'd all love to see your work! If you have a previous upload you'd like to share, you may link one previous upload as long as you do make sure you add a new card or design as well.

Trudee - Natural Beauty

Michele - Bloom

Julia - Spring Smile

Can't wait to see your designs! Happy Thursday!
Julia

One thing about it, there are so many retiring that you have a wide variety to choose from. Since I'm not a demo, I don't have to worry about it. Will be interesting to see what everyone comes up with. I better get on it, as I have 10 Christmas cards to make today.

This is going to be easy. I just uploaded my color challenge card and it fits the bill too. Here's that one:

Perfect choice! I've got an on-going project I've been working on for about three weeks -- to use retiring sets in the challenges. Today is right up my alley! Can't wait to get home from work this evening and do my next one! Thanks, Julia!

Well, well, well, I don't think too many of us will have a problem making a card with a retiring set, since there are SO MANY GOING!
I'll try to make one new for today.

With all the hustle and bustle of the past few weeks - I haven't even gone through my retired list. I know when I do I will CRY! :<

I suppose if I have time today I should! Hi Julia!

I tried the link to the retired sets and got the message that the page is no longer available. Where else can I see the list?

This is a fun one. I do not think I own any that will retire though. Hmmm, I will have to look real hard.
