OBG Blog Hop

Hello! We Design Divas are having our very first hop!! OBG ( oldie but goodie ) Blog Hop!
We are making cards or projects using something we bought or got and haven't used in six months or longer. Well this was not hard for me, being a spender not a do'er. The cards I did for this were stamps that I haven't used. This rose stamp I have never used ( not sure why it's a beautiful stamp). The stamp is by PSX.

You should have come here from Nina Brackett's blog. If not and you want to start at the beginning you can go back to Sue's Blog.



The beautifully drawn image in this card is by Asela Hopkins " Friendship's Garden" by GKD. I forgot how much I liked this stamp set.I choose not use a sentiment in my cards that way I can add them later as I left room to do so.


Supplies used in the top card: I used used both copic's and Prisma pencil for the image. The card stock is by GKD. Ribbon is from my stash.
The bottom card: Was colored with Copic's. Dp is by Theresa Momber, digi paper is available at GKD. Card stock, pearls and ribbon is GKD.

The next stop is Jennie Harper. Hope you enjoy the hop, it is just for fun.

Thanks for stopping by.

Wow, Geri your cards are beautiful. I love that you picked an old PSX stamp to use for your first card. They really are great stamps and I miss PSX so much. Thanks so much for playing along in the OBG hop. This has been something I have wanted to do for along time. I really appreciate you joining.
