Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop

   

  Today is the monthly OBG blog hop. If you have arrived here from Heather Dennis's blog, Heather's Coffee Break, then you are on the right track.  If not, just click on the logo above to and start from the beginning.

      For this hop, you must use something that has been in your stash 6 months or longer.  For my card, the stamp has been in my possession for two years without seeing ink, the washi papers used for the paper cranes are at least four years old, and the stickles is probably 2 years or older as well. I  just never had cause to use the blue stickles even though I love this product and use it a lot.


     I adore Asian images and this is blog hop reminds me to use them.  I had to hunt for 6 months to find this image.  How sad that it took this long to actually use it.

     Next stop on this blog hop is Linda Payne at Payne Holler Cards .  Be sure to follow along to see all the fantastic cards that the talented  Design Divas have made.  This is always a fun hop and reminds me of some of the wonderful things that are in our stash or our stamping world that we forget for the new and exciting for the moment products.


Stamp - Kodomo - Folded Cranes
Washi Paper - Stone House Stamps
Prisma Pencils and OMS
