I have been doing some serious purging! My craft room was getting pretty bad so I knew I had to do something. Since I had already gone through a lot of stuff to put in the sale last week, I decided to keep it up. I needed to redo my paper storage to get the retiring colors out and put the new colors in the files so I got all new labels typed up for that. I had three drawers full of bits and pieces and some whole pieces of card stock that has long been retired as well as DSP that I found I really wasn't using that much. So I have made goodie bags for my stamp club gals full of paper and DSP. They can use it or pitch it - it's up to them! I also found bags full of 3-D items I have required over the years in swaps that needed to go. I went through them and kept out a few I wanted to keep and put the rest in a box and I will let my gals pick out what they want this month. I feel pretty good and my floor is clean since I even vacuumed!! I still have a big container of DSP to go through but I'm getting there!
I did have time this afternoon to make a card to share with you using a stamp set that I think a lot of people will miss - Just Believe. It is such a pretty set that I am going to hold on to mine just a little longer! I also used retiring colors for the card - I love Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink together! They have always been my "go to" colors for spring and flower cards. Guess I'll be finding a new combo now - how about Pear Pizzazz, Pink Pirouette and Pool Party????
Here is another retiring set - Build A Blossom and the coordinating punch. I sold this set on Saturday - I had to do it quick before I thought about it too hard or it would have come back home with me!! I used the Soda Pop Top for the center and stamped the butterfly from Collage Curios to put in the middle. Collage Curios is in the Spring Mini Catalog - if you like this set, you better buy it now - just saying!

My club meets today. I always have a hard time deciding what to make - I just want to do it all! I keep having to remind myself that they are pretty novice stampers so I need to keep it simple but also knock their socks off! Hope this does it!
