Design D.I.V.A.S. Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop!

Hello!! Happy Wednesday and welcome to the Design D.I.V.A.S. "Oldies But Goodies" Blog Hop! We had a very small group today however you KNOW that their projects will be fabulous!!!! I am the first stop on your journey today!

Each month, we are to create a project using stamping items that are at least 6 months old and feeling neglected. Well, that really isn't hard for me! I have a whole stamp room of neglected items! While rummaging around, I found an image that I had stamped and colored a LONG time ago- probably over a year ago!! So, I decided to use that, along with some patterned paper that I "won" in a blog candy forever ago...and this is what I came up with:

The image is from Bombshell Stamps' Horsing Around western stamp set. Isn't she cute?? Here's a close-up of that cute face and that adorable pig!

I hope you've enjoyed my creation today. Your next stop is Sue's Sentiments. Sue NEVER disappoints!! I know you'll LOVE what she has to share! Just in case you lose your way, here is the short but complete blog hop list:
