Design Divas Oldies but Goodies Blog Hop

Our facebook group does this every third Wednesday - challenge is just to use "something" in our stash that's at least six months old! ....and WOW do I have a lot of "that"  LOL
If you are hopping, you should have come from the super talented blog of Mary Harmon ...and I'm the last in the hop so if you wanted to start at the beginning, pop over to the awesome blog of Cindy Grigiski

for this hop I pulled out a favorite old stamp from All Night Media but it doesnt have a name - there is a number if you are interested - its 485j01.  I fell in love with it several years ago when my BFF Jennie Harper made a card using it and I had to have it...took me forever to find it but finally did on Ebay!!! hope you like it

 
colored with chalks!!sentiment from Hero Arts (I think...no name on it but I think it came in a set)
cardstock and dp is from Stampin Up, corner punch from Fiskars and tag from Spellbinders

This is just for fun and it really is....love the "push" to pull out my old "stuff"...
have a beautiful day
enjoy the rain - we dont have any choice LOL...praying for those suffering with the floods...
hugs,

You are the icing on the cake, Linda. What a great card. I love the handsome stamp as well and the way you framed it in the circle and then the corner detailing on the green panel behind it.

I've been missing you, hope you are well. I see why you fell in love with this stamp, such a vintage look and reminds me of simpler times. Tfs, I love to pull some of my oldies out and play. I've been playing some at challenges where you can use any brand and it is fun to do some things with my stash. Take care and see you soon. Are you coming to NC in July? I hope so that we can all get together.
