Good-bye....

To FROSTY....
He is finally retiring at the end of this year...for years he was my favourite snowman! I hadn't pulled him out yet this year and thought I better do it soon....why not today!
I know a lot of demos are glad to see him go, but I really did like this guy...he was great to stamp on tiles, on candles and of course cards! He was always a favourite of my stamping friends too! I'll tuck him away in a safe spot to use for years to come!
This first card below is of a sketch that Maria posted on her blog Stampin Inspirations by Maria. Be sure to check out her blog! She's doing some blog candy too ;)
It hasn't been stated yet but since this Dashing Paper has River Rock in it, then it will be retiring too...it has to be since they change the In Colours each year. So my next few cards all have the DP and Frosty.



Hope everyone is having a GREAT day!
ETA: When I say that the Dashing DP will retire....I can't see it being in the new catty for Spring and Summer....it may be on the dormant list until June 30th though. I was thinking it will be on the accessories list that comes out Dec. 10th. The In Colours stay til June 30th.

Frosty is my favorite as well and I will hate to see him go.

Are you sure about the In colors, I thought they were going to be good for a year, until July. If you look at the Spring preview mini on one of the pages it shows the Ginger Blossom paper and it has River Rock in it. Maybe we'll get lucky and those colors will stay.
