Today's card started with tears from Emily all because of Stampin' Up!'s Pony Party.  She has this stamp set, but we keep it in my stamp room.  Before school, she asked me why her Pony Party set was in a box and not in the cabinet.  I told her that I pull all of my retiring sets and put them in a box.  I think she heard, "This set is retiring and will meet it's demise at high noon."  The lower lip started trembling, the tears started welling up.

I told her that I keep a lot of my retiring sets and that I would not dream of getting rid of her stamp set.  That was rewarded with a huge hug and kiss.  She told me that I should make a card for my site so that everyone could see how pretty this set was.

I think that if you have a little girl, that this is a must have set.  I used it for her birthday party invites last year.  I have made about 20 birthday cards with it for kids in her class – it is just fun!

Sticking with two colors, Pretty in Pink and Elegant Eggplant, was the way to go.  I had a green in with it and it was too much.
