I am not a fan of using retired products on my blog, however if I only used current products I would be left with a room of useless stuff and I can't handle that. I think what I am trying to say is I am sorry if you desperately want something I have shown and are unable to get it. I know I find it frustrating when I see something I have to have and it is discontinued. This hobby of ours moves at such an phenomenal rate that products seem to get retired before I have even had chance to use them.
That being said the stamps I've used are still current, not sure about the papers but the card definitely isn't but I am hoping when stampin up has a colour change these get reintroduced.
Its a fairly simple card, most of the work was done by the blueprints, such a fantastic tool and long may they continue.
