Oldies But Goodies Blog Hopping Divas

Greetings, blog friends!  Here we go with another Facebook Design D.I.V.I.A.S Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop.  The rules are simple - to use stamps that are at least 6 months old in the hopes you'll drag out those "old friends" you used to play with, the ones you loved so much but now are living in obscurity because you have "new friends" and rarely pay any attention to them now.  







If you've come here from Heather Dennis' blog, then you're in the right place, if not, take a hop back to the beginning blog of Carolyn Bounds and check out the entire hop for some great inspiration.  


This is my oldie but goodie creation



I've been in the mood to begin creating fall crds so I thought I'd dig out some of my autumn stamps for this hop.  
  
I dry embossed and distressed a layer of Basic Grey "Out of Print" dp, then distressed and curled the corners.  The layering cs was distressed with an edger then inked with distress ink "Walnut Stain".  The stamps I used are from two Gina K StampTV Showtime Stamp Kits "Autumn Spendor" and "Signs of Autumn".  


Thanks for hopping here, now please go on over to Cindy Johnson Pec's blog and see what fabulous inspiration she's got for us.

Hi again Cheri - I have to use anonymous because for some reason I cannot use my normal google account - even though I'm logged in and it seems to work on some. Anyway, I came back to tell you that you are linked to Cindy G rather than Cindy P - just an FYI. Dru

Cheri, isn't great that we can be working on autumn cards finally? Even the occasional warm day feels cooler with stamps and colors like you used on this beautiful card! Your sentiment and the die cut is the perfect centerpiece! Sending hugs your way!

Just in case Cheri is off making another beautiful creation, let me direct visitors to Cindy Johnson Pec's blog Cindy's Antics, the next stop on the hop. We have 2 beautiful Cindy's on the hop and sometimes the links get tangled. :-)
