A Fond Farewell to Wild About You

I am losing a few of my favorite sets to the “Last Chance List” this year, (formerly known as the retirement list).  One of these sets I will be so sad to see leave the catalog will be Wild About You.  This is one of those sets I will be keeping around for a long time.  It is just so versatile, the little animals can be used for so many different occasions.  Today’s use was for a set of thank you cards for a baby shower.  I always like to include some thank you’s when I give baby, bridal or wedding gifts, because really you can never have enough thank you notes.  I think that I was inspired with this design from someone on the blog tour that I participated in last month, I made a quick round through the tour planning on going back the next day to really check things out and jot down notes and stuff but, well, that didn't happen and now I don't know where I saw the cards or design that inspired this set. gbabythanks1I used the same 3 main colors and just rotated them a little with each different animal.  For the aligator I ended up using Always Artichoke but stamped it off on a piece of scratch paper before stamping it on my cardstock to soften the look of him a bit.gbabythanks2 The saying actually came from the Trendy Trees stamp set.  They are cute and simple and I am really pleased with how they turned out.gbabythanks3 Stamps: Wild About You, Trendy Trees

These are wonderful thank you cards! It's so hard to lose versatile sets to the retirement list, but at least we can choose to keep 'em! :)
