Third Thursdays Blog Hop: A Fond Farewell

There are SO MANY great products on the retiring list! It's always sad to see our favorites go, but there are so many wonderful things coming!

For today's Third Thursdays blog hop, we are giving a fond farewell to our favorite, well used products!
My card today has more than one product I am giving a tearful farewell to! The Sweetest Thing stamp set and dies, as well as the 2018-2020 in-color DSP stacks! I wanted to do something a little less purple and pink for a more versatile birthday card, and immediately turned to those beautiful bright in-colors! Don't worry, they aren't leaving us yet! We get another year with them - THANK GOODNESS!!! But the Designer Series Paper Stacks are changing! We're saying goodbye to those beautiful stripes and polka dots! *sniff sniff* So sad! They are so versatile! I use them on EVERYTHING!

The bright colors reminded me of those swirl lollipops, and the stripes were just perfect for a candy shoppe! So, using the soon to be retired Sweetest Thing stamp set, I made my own swirl pop by stamping in Pineapple Punch and then drawing a stripe with the in-color Stampin' Write Markers from the center out. 
I love the way it turned out! It looks delicious enough to eat!
The candy jar looked a little empty, so I also added a few Glitter Enamel Dots as either gumballs or gumdrops (it depends on which one of my kids you ask!)

I also shortened the sentiment to fit on the card front, and I DO believe it will make for a very sweet celebration indeed!
