Oldie but Goodie Blog Hop




hi there, welcome to the Oldie But Good Blog Hop where
the theme is always to use supplies that haven't been used for 6 months or longer and this time we were asked to think about being thankful!
This hop is done by members of the Facebook Group the Designing Divas...you should have arrived from the awesome blog of  DIVA Sue Morris

since we had a theme for this blog hop of something we are thankful for... my inspiration came to me while I was spending time with my mother-in-law who is 90 and lives in Logan, West VA. She has a salt block in her backyard (which is right at the bottom of the mountain) and the deer just come right on up and enjoy themselves!
it's beautiful and I'm thankful for "nature" - God's creation is so beautiful !!

the deer in the clearing reminded me of this stamp I've had from Penny Black for soooooo long...couldnt wait to get home and make my card - love purple and sparkle...so here you go

used retired Stampin Up designer paper, Eggplant and Perfect Plum cardstock, SU ribbon, liquid applique and stickles for snow, colored with Prisma pencil Violet and Copic C2, Smooch illuminator, MS border punch....handwritten sentiment...done!

 hope you like...

 now you're off to the super uber talented blog of  DIVA Cindy Johnsen Pec

have a beautiful day,
