OBG Blog Hop

     For the first  hop of the day, I am hopping along with the Design Diva's.  This stands for Divine, Inspirational, Virtuous, Artistic (Anoited) Sistahs!  Our group originated 2 years ago on SCS and recently branched out to Facebook.   OBG means you must use something that you have had in your stash for at least 6 months; papers, stamps, etc.   It may be a card, scrap book page or a 3D item.  If you are just starting the hop you can pop on over to Heather's Coffee Break and hop from the beginning. If you are coming from Vicki's blog, Bountiful Blessing, then you are in the right place.    I really enjoy this hop, we get to use treasures that we have forgotten about but still love.

     For today's card I created another little something for my sister,  another pea pod card, this time using a Bugawumps stamp I've had for maybe a year or more.  I purchased this stamp with the express purpose of making a card for my sis. I just fell in love with the little critter peeking out from behind the peas. I added little rhinestones to his eyes so that he would really pop.  The paper I purchased last summer and has a Japanese style pea pod along with some plum blossoms, aren't the bright colors just fun; and besides, how often do you find paper with pea pods on it?  Not too often, I can tell you.  The card was designed using the Mojo Monday sketch for this week.

     For the next stop on your journey, hop on over to Cindy's Antics for another beautiful card.  You will be glad you did.
