Retiring Madness

Well, it is that time of year when the retiring madness starts. Things start selling out and people become frustrated that they didn't get the ink refills or cardstock that they wanted before it retired.  If you are one of those people who are like this, GET YOUR RETIRED items now before they are gone!  Some items are already sold out, so don't wait any longer!  I am one of those people who sells her retired items, so this doesn't apply to me.  The madness that I experience this time of the year is trying to use all of my retiring stamp sets, dies and accessories one last time. :) I did this with my card for CAS(E) this Sketch today.
I used retiring stamp sets, framelits AND DSP on this card.  These particular stamps have never even seen ink!  Others in each set were very frequently used, but these stamps were nice and clean. :)
I really like these pears and wish I had gotten around to using them sooner!  I'm also sad to see the Cannery Framelits go. I get so attached to my Big Shot items, even if I don't use them all that much. I am somewhat of a collector, you might say. :) 
Stamp Sets: Friendly Phrases, Friendship Preserves
Cardstock: Pear Pizazz, Whisper White
Ink: Early Espresso, Pear Pizazz, Summer Starfruit
Tools: Cannery Framelits
Accessories: Summer Smooches DSP
