*something old, something new...*

Today I decided that it would be fun to make something with a mixture of old and new. I dug through my paper stash and found these wonderful coordinating papers by My Mind's Eye. It's one of my favorite companies for vintage and shabby papers. I dug through my stack of stamps and found this neglected little mouse in a Stampin' Up set called Say Something Mice. It's long been retired, but the little mice in it are just sooooo sweet, and since I've been playing with all The Saltbox Studio stamps so much lately, I've kind of developed a *thing* for mice. ;) Do you notice anything *new*? I just got 5 of the new Cuttlebug embossing folders. I pre-ordered them way back in October, and they finally came this week! They were definitely worth the wait. They make this card so sweet, and they add the perfect amount of texture and dimension. I tried adding a few stitches with my machine, but that was somewhat of a disaster. I think the layers were just too thick. So I ditched that idea and came up with this... a simple top-fold card with a little pocket on the front... perfect for adding a short message or tucking in a gift card or some cash.

A Muse and Elzybells *sneak peeks* are coming later this week...so be sure to stop back! You don't wanna miss it!
