You’re Sublime Yellow Submarine Watercolor Card – Kitchen Table Stamper Retirement Series


Hey Guys! I am just working a little today because Memorial Day is my husbands holiday. He works Memorial Day so I work Memorial Day – keeps me out of trouble.

This morning was a time to reflect on matters of service and sacrifice. Today, I prayed over our nation and over those who serve, those who would, and do, give life and limb, to protect this one nation under God. I have asked for peace and comfort to those loved ones left behind by brave men and women lost in service of this country. I am filled with gratitude for those who serve and sacrifice so that we can live a life of liberty.

Tonight, when my loved ones get home from work, we will gather and grill and enjoy a gorgeous May evening. I am so grateful. Thank you for spending a piece of this Memorial Day with me.

Today, I have another card for you in the Kitchen Table Stamper 2016-17 Stampin Up Catalog Retirement Series. It’s a clean and simple watercolor card featuring You’re Sublime, which is currently on LOW INVENTORY and the 1/8″ Smoky Slate Stitched Ribbon which has SOLD OUT since the filming of this video. All Retirement List products are only available while supplies last.
