Today's card includes some retired/retiring products.  I thought that was appropriate since we are in the midst of saying goodbye to retiring products from the current catalog.  Some of the products used to make this card were previously retired and are not available in the current catalog.

The retired stamp set was called Yippee-Skipee! as the sentiment reads.  The Sweetheart Punch and Small Oval Punch (previously retired) were used to make the paw print; and the Word Window Punch and Small Heart Punch were used to make the bone.  The Word Window Punch is retiring with the current catalog, so if you don't have that absolutely indispensable punch yet, order it today!  I use it so often for small sentiments and for LOTS of punch art projects.  In my opinion, it is definitely a MUST HAVE punch for your craft room!  I used the previously retired Small Heart Punch for the ends of the bone, but you could also use the little heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack instead.  That punch pack is also retiring, so grab it while you can!

I made this card for my son and it accompanied a sweet little toy box full of puppy toys for his new puppy.  Inside the greeting read:  "Congratulations on your new baby!"  That is exactly what new little puppies are:  A special baby addition to your household.  He named her Layla and she is such an adorable sweetheart!  I used the now retiring Brights Candy Dots to accent the inside sentiment, giving it just the right amount of pop.  The little bow was made with the Bermuda Bay 1/8" Stitched Ribbon on page 35 of the Occasions Catalog.

Place an order today using Host Code GUTCWECC and I will enter your name into a drawing for a FREE gift!  Don't delay placing your order for your favorite retiring products before they are gone forever!  Some items are already sold out!  For a complete list of what is retiring, click HERE.

Here is sweet baby Layla!
