Sayonara to Pocket Silhouettes

Happy May Day!  Do you remember celebrating May Day in school?   I remember as a small child walking the few blocks to Queens College from my grandmother's house and watching the May Day celebration.  I thought the girls dancing around the May Pole were so elegant.  I imagine now that Queens is a large university, they don't dance around the May Pole anymore.  Does anyone?

I've been trying to create a few cards using the stamp sets that will be retiring at the end of the month.   The card I am showcasing today is Pocket Silhouettes.  I have not used this set in quite a while and I don't know why.  it is a really nice set and can be used for sympathy, birthday, thank you ....  you name it and the images will fit the occasion.

 The pink card was mailed to my Monday Mailer partner last week.  It turned out so pretty.  I love pink and green - think it is the "preppy" in me!  I grew up wearing those shirts with the little alligator on them!  My grandmother used to make a lot of my clothes and she would save the alligator from things we outgrew.  So, when she made us a madras dress or other things, she would sew that little alligator right on it.  After I got married, I learned to sew and inherited those alligators and would sew them onto shirts that I made!  I bet I still have some of the alligators in my sewing basket!!  How I disgress!  Here are the details on the card:

Card Stock:  Blushing Bride, Pear Pizazz, Whisper White, In Color Stacks DSP
Ink:  Regal Rose
Stamp:  Pocket Silhouettes, Oval All
Access:  Square Punches, DSP Brads, Chantilly Lace Ribbon, Oval Punch

A lot of the materials to make the card are retiring - lace ribbon (boo hoo), card stock, DSP, stamp set - so if you want any of these items, you better order now.

Here is another version of the Pocket Silhouettes set.  This card uses retired DSP that I had in my stash.  I have made a card box using this DSP and made this card to match the box.  I'm still working on decorating the box and will share it later.  Details on the card:

Card Stock:  Kraft, Soft Suede, Baha Breeze, Very Vanilla, Soiree DSP (retired)
Stamp:  Pocket Silhouettes
Ink:  Baha Breeze, Soft Suede
Access:  Border Punch (retiring), Label Punch

Make today a good one!
