I saw this little favor on Pinterest, but the label on the Pinterest favor was more professional looking~~almost as though it was the real A&W logo on that label. But, since I wanted to make these and didn't have that label, I made my own! I opened the My Digital Studio software and spent a little while typing and centering, etc. Once it was looking pretty good, I printed it, used my Labels framelits to die cut the label and mat, sponged the edges, added stars and tied it on to a little bottle of A&W root beer using twine. This is my Father's Day favor this year and we will make it in class. For those attending card class, I made labels that say "You're an Awesome Dad" and others that say "You're Awesome". This way, it is not limited to a father, but can be given to a brother, uncle, grandpa~~just about anyone actually!! Have an awesome day!!

I went downstairs to see how many retired stamp sets I will be taking off the current shelves and there were a few~~and a few I am very sorry to see go. But, a number of my favorite sets are still available, Happy Hour being one of the keepers! So today's fun and colorful cards were made using the Happy Hour set. The drinks on the Tempting Turquoise card were first stamped using black ink on the Whisper White cardstock. I then stamped the drinks again using different ink colors, cutting out the " drink" and adhering it over the stamped black "drink". I used markers to ink the little drink embellishments surrounding the sentiment. The Strawberry Slush card was less time-consuming. I stamped each image in a solid color, used markers to color the drink embellishment and stamped the sentiment three times using the same colors I used for the drinks. I now have two cards that can be used for a variety of occasions. When I need one, I will hand write a little note inside. Cheers to you and a great day!

This morning the Retired Lists were released by Stampin' Up. I have emailed a number of my ladies the lists and I would post them here~~if I knew how! Since SU didn't give us a direct link to the actual lists, following is a direct link to my Stampin' Up website store section of the announced retiring items:
If you would like to see the actual list, please email me and I can send it to you. I will be going down to my scraproom shortly to see what I will be losing!!
And don't forget! Today is the first day of Free Shipping! Have a great day!
