I had to add an update to this post! This card was a winner in the #GDP085 2015-2017 In Color Choose Your Fave! I am so excited I can’t believe it. This card was a cutie, so I am glad it was worthy of winning.
It has been a while since I did a Global Design Project Challenge. I check the e-mails and the page out every week. And my intentions are always good that I will play along with the challenge! But somehow, life keeps getting in the way. But this week is all about the retired In Colors and I just had to give it a go! The color challenges are among my favorites! My thought was to find a sentiment that indicated something like “missing you” or some other appropriate words to say good-bye to well loved friends. And I also had the challenge of getting as many In Colors in one card as I could. Perfect mix was certainly the right set to express all that. I could use all the In Colors except Cucumber Crush and the sentiment is exactly what I think about this selection of In Colors!
There are a lot of great ideas this week on this marvelous theme. Check out what everyone is doing at the #GDP Color Challenge by clicking the icon below.
I will be packing up my retired In Colors soon to send to a friend. And believe me, it is a sad good-bye. I will especially miss Mint Macaron and Delightful Dijon! But these great colors will be in a good home and I will remember them well. And who knows, Stampin’ Up could always bring them back! You never know. And like life, you have old friends and new friends. And the new friends in the 2017-2018 In Colors are fresh, trendy and fun to be around! I can’t wait to get to know them!
But until then, I will be doing a short tour with some of the In Colors and give them the send off they deserve. And to help, I will be using some retired stamps. So, if you like them, you have a short time to make them yours. Until May 31st in fact. After that, these stamps go into the sunset of retirement!
