Default **SOB** So long my beloved Roses.....

I am so sad to see my Roses In Winter retiring. Not that I'll be giving it up - I mean, DUDE! Who would want my set, it's so incredibly stained now!

I know this means we'll get lots of new great florals, but perhaps a moment of silence for the Roses.......

I'm with you Emily, I'm a little upset that In Full Bloom has retired, but I'm definitely in mourning for Roses in Winter.
I just gave my Wild Rose set to a friend, because I just can't make a thing with it, so even if it is retiring, I think my RIW will see much more action, lol.

I know what you mean - RIW, IFB and Petal Prints are the florals that I constantly reach for. But I sure won't stop using them.

Oh my, poor Emily. She is the first one I thought of when I saw RIW on the list. As for self, I'm in mourning for Petal Prints. But, Emily's right, just think of the new beauties that will replace them!

Just when I thought I had all of the florals, they retire a bunch and no doubt will introduce a whole bunch more. Darn it!!! I'll have to buy the new ones now!!

But it looks like they have retired a lot of the sets that were on everyone's "Which sets do you hope SU finally retires" list. Like Nice & Easy Notes, Little Hellos etc.

I'm surprised at the number of new sets that were introduced last year that are retiring already. Well, not too surprised because some of them were weird like Super Squirrel and No Place Like Gnome.

I just don't get it with this set. I don't like it, I never have and not one of the cards made with it has made me change my mind. I thought there must be something wrong with me because everyone is gaga over this set!!!! To me it looks like something Grandma would wear on her sweatshirt.

Oh good, I'm not the only one. I've never liked it either. I'm much more of a Mixed Bouquet kinda gal (and speaking of which, )

Amen!! I have to admit I appreciate the beautiful cards Emily makes with this set, but I still think the "look" is mostly Grandma!

I'm mourning the Roses and I don't even own it yet. It is definitely on my buy list.

I feel for ya', Emily. I never got that set, but, have often drooled over all the things made with it, including your lovely creations.

Take heart, my friend.

Something good *must* be around the corner!

I will take a knee, tho, in honor of your mourning.

Emily, I am so sorry you are upset. You must really LOVE RIW. While I like flowers and have a lot of flower stamps RIW just didn't do it for me. The world would be pretty boring if we all liked the same things. Lets all have a moment of silence for Emily and her beloved RIW She made beautiful cards with this set. I know SU will come out with something you will really like!! (hugs)

I just got RIW about two months ago -- and so glad I did. Don't know why I waited so long. I'm just a hobby demo, so it doesn't matter to me that it's retired.

I finally got this set during SAB. I am still learning how to best use it. Sorry to see it go. Sounds like I need to check out Emily's gallery for inspiration on this set.

LOL, thank you for honoring my roses.

And I know they always wow me with something else! Last year it was toile blossoms they took away, but there will always be another, right? \

.....or at least someone else will have the stamps I need, lol!

ummm...excuse my ignorance, but why can't demos use the retired sets anymore? Is that a rule? Ever??? Or as Julie says, "Evah?"

Thanks for enlightening a newbie.

They can use 'em for personal use.

They are not permitted to demonstrate professionaly with them, once they are officially retired (not in the catalog any more) due to the fact that consumers are no longer able to order them--don't wanna wave something under peoples' noses, and then say, "But, you can't buy it no m'oh, already!" UKWIM?

Yep, Julie said it. We *can* use them. And honestly, I don't demo anyway. But I usually gravitate to the current stuff anyway.

You know what's really sad? I haven't seen you around SCS for like a year, but I just saw RIW on the retired list and my first thought was "Oh no.. Emily!"... LOL!!

When I saw RIW on the list, I was in shock. "No way," was my first thought. My second thought was... Poor Emily! She's not going to like this!
