3,2,1 Blog Candy Time!

Firstly I have to apologise for my bad blogging week. After Stamp Camp and then classes and then a Media Launch, it has been a big week! I still have so much catching up to do too...
This is my other stamp-a-stack from this month. I used some non-masculine sets to make some masculine cards. There's lots of retiring product used here!
I thought it was about time for some blog candy! It's a 3,2,1 challenge:
Name the 3 retiring stamp sets I used on these cards?
Name the 2 retiring colours I used?
Name the 1 retiring punch I used?

You have until Monday morning to leave a comment. I will put all the correct entries into a hat, and the winner will receive a pack of assorted retiring goodies!
Anyone can enter!

    2 colours: River Rock and Blue Bayou (sad to see the back of the Bayou!)

    and the punch: Spring Flower Bouquet
