Goodbye, Always!

Today I decided to stamp with one of my favorite retiring stamp sets, Always! I 'always' had great intentions of using it more often - and then other new stamp sets came along. So I figured I better get it out and use it today!!

I used Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso - more of my favorites!

Here's a close-up of the always, punched with the 1" and the 1 1/4" circle punches. I also added a banner piece (cut out with the Big Shot Petal Cone die) - that little piece is perfect for so many stamps!

And, maybe you can see, I used the white gel pen to color in the details on the bird.

Don't forget to check the retiring list to make sure you have your favorites before they're gone!!
