Design Divas Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop

Hello today is the third Wednesday and that means it is time for a Design Diva Hop.  What is a Design Diva  you say, well it is a group of stampers on facebook.  The theme of the hop is always the same,  we are use "Oldies but, Goodies". Pulling stamps, papers, tools, embellishments, etc. anything that's at least 6 mos. or older to make a card, SB layout, paper project, etc.  I love this as I tend to use my new stuff and forget about the old stuff.

I am your first stop on the hop today, if you get lost along the way I have the complete list at the bottom of this post.  On to my card.

I used a stamp that I have had around for too long with out showing it some inky lovin'.  It is from a set from Unity called Shine On!  In fact I think everything on this card is at least six months old,  yikes!  Oh except for the pearls I bought those on Sunday.  I also used this weeks sketch from Mojo Monday, I loved this one.
Now it is time to head over to one of my dear stamping friends (who happens to be one very talented lady) Linda Payne.  Happy hopping and thank you for stopping by today.
