All month I have been talking about how sad I am that some of the Stampin’ Up! products I love are retiring. The thing is, though, it is also a really exciting time too. Stampin’ Up! demonstrators were allowed to purchase some of the new items in the Annual Catalog that starts June 1st. I decided to make a card using one of my favorite sets that is going to retire (Zoo Babies) with one of the new sets that is coming out. That set is called Thoughtful Banners. It also has a matching punch called Duet Banners.
In addition to that, I also used a new In Color with this card. It is the dark blue color and is called Dapper Denim. See the ribbon? That is a new Ruched Ribbon that is also in Dapper Denim. I have to admit, I was a little skeptical about this ribbon. I thought it might be hard to tie but it was actually easy. It is a little stiffer which makes it easier to tie. It comes in all the new In Colors. You are going to love it!
Here is a picture of Madelyn on her first birthday in the dress I bought her. She looked adorable in it, although she did not really cooperate with having her picture taken. We must have taken a hundred photos and none turned out as well as wished.
