hi again,
this is sooooo fun. I am one of the members of the SplitCoast blogging group known as the Design Diva's...well our leader, Sue Morris, opened it up on Facebook and we now have over 70 members!! that was quick and Sue has had to close the group.

Our first event is this "Oldie but Goodie" blog hop.... if you lose track of where you are...start at Sue's blog . From my blog here... pop over to Julie's blog! and you should have come from Ching's blog that was easy peasy LOL

ok, here is my oldie!! This is one of my first stamps. It is from PSX dated 1992!!! yikes, that's old....but it's a goodie. When I was rummaging around my stamps and found this ...I thought...why oh why do I keep buying sunflower stamps - this one is a gem!! of course, back then all I did was ink and stamp and called it a card LOL

Hope you enjoy the hop - we will be doing this the third Wednesday each month.
