Design Divas OBG Blog Hop

It’s time for our Design Divas blog group “Oldies But Goodies” Blog hop where we have to use something that’s been in our stash for at least 6 months. Piece of cake – I have things I’ve had for 6+ years, let alone 6 months. If you came from Linda’s blog at The Stamper’s Touch you are on the right track. If you want to start at the beginning, go to Heather’s Coffee Break.

I made this card for my Father in Law for Father’s Day and have never posted it. My “Oldie but Goodie” is the little fishing bauble bumble bee. The image is “Mr. Brown on Vacation” from Phindy’s. I first saw it on Linda’s blog at Payne Holler Cards and I had to have it. This is the image of my Father-in-Law ~ it looks exactly like him. He has the same hat and the float tube and the moustache. He loved it and right away said “Hey, that’s me!!”

Take care friends and thanks for stopping by.

Design Gives Back & Miracle Makeover for Charlie & Pink Saturday all in one…..

Are any of you familiar with Design Gives Back? I’ve heard of it, but did not know all that much about it – until now. For Pink Saturday this week, Beverly at How Sweet the Sound is helping to further their project of once a year doing a miracle makeover room for a child with cancer and maybe other health problems also – I’m still fuzzy on all the details. I do know this is all for a good cause and does not cost you or I a dime – only a comment left on Beverly’s blog post for today. Each comment earns a donation of $1.00 and she is going for $5000.00 ~ so please go to How Sweet the Sound and just leave a comment – yep, that’s all it takes. And while you are there stop and visit some of the other blogs for some wonderful talent, fun, and friends.

My pinks for today…


Beautiful pink climbing roses from part of the 2011 Historical Society’s Lake Tahoe Garden Tour…
