But anyway, I bring you today's slightly late Friday Flashback. Today's retired stamp set of choice is Sincere Salutations, and I remember how excited we stampers were when it first came out--eight sentiments in a pretty classy mixed-font format, what's not to love? So again, this flashback would take a week if I put up every single project I ever made with this stamp set. Let's just select a few, shall we?
|Also features Baroque Motifs|
|Also features Natural Beauty|
|Also features Pretty Peony|
Some pretty purple peonies for a birthday...
|Also features Roses in Winter|
And Christmas roses. Yeah, Sincere Salutations has got you covered for most events.
|Also features Stippled Stencils, Weathered|
The sentiment showed up better IRL on this card than in the scan (and this was so long ago that it was a scan rather than a photo)--it's embossed in gold.
|Also features Wonderful Wings, Filigree|
One last card featuring one of the gorgeous butterflies from Wonderful Wings, and also last week's Friday Flashback set of Filigree. And now for this week's new creation:
I'm pretty pleased with it. I used the color challenge from ColourQ:
And apparently I was influenced by the picture in the challenge graphic too, because I think that's what made me reach for Medallion. I also used this week's Retro Rubber Challenge sketch:
In the spirit of the challenge, I've had Sincere Salutations for I suppose 11 years because I think I got it when it came out; Medallion dates from 2011 so five years, and True Friend I've had for 9 years. Yeah, I think I got the "retro" part of the challenge covered this time ;)
Well, hubs just got home and he's taking me out to dinner so that's it for me. Cheers, y'all!
