Stamp Off Build a Bike with Chase Your Dreams

Yikes!   This is the final Stamp Off Challenge featuring
products from the 2018-19 Stampin' Up!  catalog.   Today, 
BuffySusan and I are using our favorite retiring dies.

I couldn't pick one.  I used the Build a Bike Framelits
with wheels made from the Chase Your Dreams Framelits,
both found on page 216.   I love the carefree feeling of
this bicycle, with fancy wheels!!  Lemon Lime Twist
paired with Flirty Flamingo is a smoking pair!

The sentiment comes from the Let it Ride set, which
carries over to the 2019-20 SU catalog. It fit perfectly
with this card.

Please pop on over to check out Buffy and Susan's
projects, featuring our retiring favorites!

Doily Builder with Butterfly Gala

As the 2018-19 Stampin' Up! and Occasions
catalogs retire, I wanted to present those products
for the last time.  In this example, I used the Doily Builder
Thinlits Dies with Whisper White Cardstock and the 
Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper layered behind.  
I added some pieces
of the retired SAB ribbon and a Dear Doily flower center.

The sentiment comes from the Butterfly Gala set
on page 35, which will carry through to the new 2019-20
Stampin' Up! catalog.  I never get tired of pairing
shades of yellow with basic black.

Dayton Tornados

Dayton Ohio tornados touching down about five
miles north of my house.  
We are fortunate that there were not record
deaths, although teams are still searching rubble.
I'm waiting for our water to be restored, but glad that I am 
adept at "camping showers".   
Please say prayers for those who have lost everything.
We are grateful for organizations that are kicking
in to help with food, water and material goods.
