RETIRED SU SET - In Full Bloom

Two of my mother's friends who were formerly in the same independent living center were moved to a different facility.  One of them has a birthday coming up and she will be sending a card to her.  But she told me she wanted to also send a "thinking of you" type card to her other friend at the same time.

Since I signed up to sell Stampin' Up products, I started going through some of my retired stamp sets and decide whether it is a  keeper or whether to sell it.  This stamp is from the retired "In Full Bloom" set.  I still like the stamps in it and will probably keep it for a while yet.  Recently I saw a card on Pinterest though that was made like this using pretty much the same colors but a different punched edge and a different sentiment.  It was quick and easy and I really do like the simplicity of it. (The card I saw on Pinterest was made by Bonnie Klass - http://www.bon2stamp.blogspot.com.   Bonnie, if you happen to see this blog post, thank you for such a great card!)

By the way, I do have some retired SU stamp sets (NO current ones) that will start posting on eBay November 9th.   If you want to find me on eBay at that time, just email me and I'll give you the link.
Thanks for stopping by!
