March Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop


Welcome to our Designing DIVAS Blog Hop! Each month we have a blog hop using those supplies that haven't seen any love and attention in a while. You should have arrived here from Mary's blog, if you want to start at the beginning you can visit Melissa and then click through the hop. I love the idea of these blog hops. For me personally, this is a great challenge. It gives me a little more motivation to look for and use things that I haven't been using. This is one of those stamps. I love the House Mouse images and love ice cream so when I saw this one I needed it. I can't remember the last time I used it though. I think it was last summer when I was coloring with my niece Zoie, I'm pretty sure that was the last time it saw ink. I was visiting with my parents and had taken my Copics and a bunch of images that I thought Zoie would be interested in playing with and we spent the better part of an afternoon coloring. I don't know how happy my brother was after that because she wanted a set of Copics for her birthday!

Image is from House Mouse and colored with Copic markers, papers are DCWV, buttons are American Crafts, and I used some DMC floss in the buttons.

Thanks for visiting today. Your next stop is Angie!
