Bar's Retirement Blog Hop


Hello everyone and welcome to Bar's Retirement Blog Hop!!! Whoohoo!!! Barbara Anders, who is stamping royalty, I tell ya, is retiring and  Tammy Hershberger brought us all together for this wonderful party!! Congrats, Bar!!! How exciting to finally retire and do exactly what you want to do....sleep late, garden, shop, stamp....what ever your little heart desires!!!

My card features the fun type-writer stamp from My Favorite Thing's called Just My Type set .....the sentiment was computer generated and the pretty papers in the background are from My Minds Eye Lime Twist. The button, twine, sewing, and ribbon finish it off.

Here are the other stampers who came to the party....be sure to visit their blogs and see what they made for Bar! Now, I better get this in an envie and sent it on it's way.
