I really wish Stampin’ Up! wouldn’t retire the stamp set Bronc Buster they have so few masculine stamp sets as it is.? I hope they are coming out with more masculine sets in this next new catalog.? The new Spring/Summer Idea Book & Catalog is only a few short weeks away.? While we patiently wait for the New Catalog to be released I will show you a few of my favorites that are retiring, remember you can still get them until January 18, 2009.
