Design Diva's Oldies but Goodies Blog Hop

Oldies but goodies refers to any stamps we have not used in 6 months...... I find this a great inspiration to get out stamps that I have not used.....


I have this gorgeous stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs Happy Birthday set that I bought- I think a year ago....... I broke it out of it's case tonight to make my Aunt a 90th Birthday card.  What was I waiting for???  I colored the image with Copic markers and added a touch of Creative Inspirations paint to highlight the centers of the flowers.  I made the ribbon from white rayon seam binding with Rose Red SU reinker.  I will be making a few more of these cards- one for each of my sisters, one for my Mom.......
****************************************************************************************
The Design Diva's are a group of stampers on Facebook and we have a monthly Blog Hop using images that are greater than 6 months old. Our Title Acronym stands for: Divine, Inspirational, Virtuous, Artistic (or annointed) sistahs! Our group originated at Splitcoaststampers back a little over 2 yrs ago and has recently branched out to the new Facebook group. (I just joined a few months ago- so am a newbie to the group....).

 The blog you arrived from is my dear blogging sis Vicki- she sends me many appreciated blessings!  My  blog is # 8 of 18 stops , so you are just about 1/2 way through the hop.  Now, on to visit CINDY

Thanks so much for stopping by- and Thanks again for all of the Prayer Warriers who are saying prayers for my 4 yr old nephew - just diagnosed with Wilms tumor (kidney cancer).
