I can't beleive it is already time for our next Designing DIVA Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop. The idea of this hop is to pull out some of your older supplies that haven't see any love in a while. Since I have been sorting through all my craft stuff, I am finding all kinds of things like that! You should have arrived her from Cindy's blog and if you want to start from the beginning you find start at Brenda's blog. If you do, I can guarantee you won't disappointed, there is some serious talent in this group.
Now on to my card. I have had this stamp for a very long time, so long that the manufacture's name is kind of unreadable! I love this image but for some reason it had gotten lost in the back of a drawer. After stamping the image, I colored it with Copics and then added some yellow Stickles to the center of each bloom. To finish it I used some purple ribbon that was at the very bottom of my ribbon holder and some little pearls. The paper is from a DCWV stack that I have had for a very long time. Other than the pearls, everything on here is an "oldie but goodie". Your next stop on the blog hop is Heather.
I have decided to make more standard A2 size cards from now on. I will still make larger ones when I am making something specific that I know I will be seeing the recipient in person, but I realized as I was going through my card stash, I have lots of 5x5 or even 6x6 cards and since those cost more to mail, they end up not getting mailed at all. I do like to send out my cards but have a limited budget for stamps and postage and I have decided I would rather send more cards to hopefully brighten the day of more people and I can do that if I stick to that standard size. Or does anyone have any suggestions for cost saving ways to mail the larger cards?
Thanks for stopping in today. Remember Heather is your next stop on the Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop!!
