Clean & Simple FTL #98: Happy Retirement






Happy Sunday!


I guess you could say it's Simple Sunday since I used the Clean and Simple FTL98 as well as the Color Throwdown Challenge 100. The minute I saw that layout I knew it would be perfect for my new stamp set Have a Seat. I have a thing for chairs (and bowls, just ask dh!), so I couldn't resist this one!


Have I also mentioned how much I am loving the Stampin' Up! clear mount stamps?! They are still the red rubber, which stamps divine, and they come with the cling mount that clings to the clear block, but they take up so much LESS storage space! Love that! I also love seeing all the images on the cover AND the spine of the box. Of course, the price is nice too! I still love wood mounts too, you can't beat how good they look on display, like here and here and here and here. I guess I'll live with a happy marriage of the two!



Okay, guess I better get moving! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!


p.s. Don't forget I have lots of stamps for sale here! *wink*
