Out with the Old…

I think it’s time to splurge and get a new embossing pad:

embossing pad, old

This pad must be 15 years old. It was one of the first ink pads I bought when I started stamping. It has finally started to deteriorate.

I finally broke down and bought a new pad — a VersaMark pad this time.  A new pad for a Fabulous Finds Friday! Let’s break in the new pad with a quick card:

This is recycled card stock — it’s a piece I saved from …. uh, something! Found it on my (messy) desk, along with green and pink scraps. I stamped and embossed the flower (Hero Arts) on the pink, cut the leaves using a Sizzix die and stamped and embossed Enjoy (Hero Arts). Wow, so quick!

Now I must force myself to throw away the old pad….
