Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop!

It's time for another Design D.I.V.A.S. "Oldies But Goodies" Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Dru's Garden of Dreams. If not, go on over to Carolyn's blog to start at the beginning!

Our challenge is to use stamps, embellishments or other stamping "stuff" that is at least 6 months old. My card uses things that are WELL over 6 months old!! I found a spool of checked ribbon in a Michael's bag with the receipt still in the bag...dated 2009! Then I found my Razzleberry ink pad which was still in the cellophane wrapper just like I got it from my SU demo! What's it been? 2 years since Razzleberry was an In-Color? So, there you go...those are my oldies but goodies items that I used on this card:


I wanted to make a clean and simple card. I love the way they look, but I think I still need practice on the whole concept!

Now head on over to Debbie's blog- the last stop of you Oldies But Goodies adventure!

Stamp set: Come to Bethlehem (Stampin' Up)
Paper: Whisper White
Ink: Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: checked ribbon (Dots, Dashes, and Checks from Michael's), stick-on clear rhinestones, pop dots

  4. Well Mary I just love your CAS design and as a SU Demo, I can say I absolutely love your choice of image and color. I have just now ordered this stamp set and can't wait to get it. You have inspired me with your clean and crisp design. Thanks so much for joining us on the hop this month. Have a wonderful day.
