Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop

It’s that time again – The Design D.I.V.A.’s Blog Group is having their monthly Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop – the point of which is to use something that you have not used in 6 months.  You should have come here from Barbara’s blog or if you need to start at the beginning ~ that would be Carolyn’s Blog.

First let me apologize to those of you that visit me frequently – I really am so sorry I’ve been MIA since last month’s blog hop. I started in January of this year getting serious about my Etsy shop and started working it like I “thought” it should be done ~ and sure enough ~ It’s working! Thanks to any of you that have been instrumental in that. What with that, and the shop I design for in town and our family business I’ve been a little busy. I’ll try to do better. But enough babble and onto my projects.

I mentioned before that I’m trying to go through all my older paper and use it up – I hate waste and some of it is not even my style anymore. So these cards were all made from the same piece of DP which is probably about 3 years old, and the wood “BOO” is I don’t even know how old ~ I’ve had it awhile. These will be going into Lake Tahoe Holidays here in town on a more traditional note.

These are also for Lake Tahoe Holidays, but on a more vintage note…

And my favorite so far…

And one last one ~ this is a card I made last year and submitted to a magazine, however it was not picked up and I don’t believe I’ve shared it. I love this image ~ and you know I don’t like coloring all that much ~ but it was another must have, is called “First Flight” and is from A Day for Daisies. I don’t see it in her Etsy shop just now – but there a lot of really cute digitals to see. If you are unfamiliar – check it out.

From here you will pop on over to Mary’s blog to see her lovely creations.

Thank you for stopping by. Take care friends.
