Farewell, Best Dad Ever

Dad's father's day card 2012Today’s post is a tribute to another retiring stamp set, Best Dad Ever.

I made this for my father-in-law for Father’s Day last year; little did I know that it would be his last Father’s Day with us.  I loved the traditional tie with the tie-tack look.  It so personified my FIL-a preacher who wore a suit & tie with a tie tack every Sunday.  I chose to use Basic Gray and Not Quite Navy for my color combo.  Not Quite Navy is another color that will be retiring soon.  I really love that color but Island Indigo is a color that we are getting to keep so I’m ok with that trade off.  I still have a stash of this color so I’m ok!

Best Dad Ever - Clear-Mount Stamp Set - by Stampin' Up! This stamp set features 5 neckties is various patterns in a row; it’s so easy to isolate just one, or two, or three ties using our Stampin’ Write markers. Four sentiments allows you to use this stamp set to create a masculine card any time of year.

I always think a good, masculine stamp set is a great investment and this certainly is top of my list of masculine stamp sets.  Find this and all other Retired Stamps  here.  Retiring Accessories. can be found here.  You can order retiring stamps up until June 3rd.  Retiring Accessories are only available while supplies last so don’t hesitate if you want something.  Stock up on your favorite colors, papers, & ribbons now.  Head over to my on-line store and start shopping now.
