Oldies but goodies. Sometimes it’s hard to let go.

As we get closer to the release of the Close to My Heart Spring/Summer 2014 catalog, I’m so excited to show off all the new papers, stamps and accessories. The new catalog is one of the best I’ve seen in a while. You’ll love the colors and styles, plus there are a few fabulous new product lines!

While waiting to show off new art, I have to pull out some favorites, even when they are retired. I used Pear & Partridge Christmas paper and one of my “I’ll never sell this one” stamp sets, A Tweet.
I inked up the bird with the Honey inkpad, then rolled the upper part of the stamp in Desert Sand inkpad. Love that two toned look! A bit of glitter on the tree branches and a sparkle eye for my birdie add a little shine to the otherwise rustic look.

Mixing old with new always works for me. How about you? Do you have some old favorites? Leave a comment and tell me what’s that one thing you’ll never part with.

Can’t wait to see the new catalog? Purchase it now, with a $5 coupon toward your first order!

It's very appealing - I think the mixture is just right to be interesting and all the little details make this very special! Your bird looks amazing . . . I need to get some ink on this stamp set, I can tell! Thanks for the inspiration, Tresa! Hugs!!

Very nice card. One thing I wouldn't want to be without--that is a tough question. Holiday Tags is a great versatile stamp set.
