Welcome to the Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop!

I love this blog hop!!! I get to play with something that hasn't been used in 6 months or more! Now you should have stopped by here from Heather's Blog...isn't she amazing?! And one of the sweetest ladies I know!!! I have to say that because she's my boss (LOL!!!)...I'm lucky enough to be on her DT for Fresh Brewed Designs. If you just happened to come here and want to start at the beginning of our hop, go to Brenda's Blog.

Believe me when I say I have MANY stamp sets that haven't seen ink in over six months. The hardest thing for me to do is decide which one I will use!!! I decided to pull out a Stampin' Up set...Serene Sunflowers. I haven't used SU stamps much ever since hanging up my demonstrator apron so what a treat. Colors include Bermuda bay, Soft suede and Crushed curry. I did a little bit of the rock 'n roll technique with the flower center. The sentiment is from Blossoms Abound (the stamp set was still on my desk from last week!). The bee is all glittered up with Stickles.
The next stop on your journey is to another extremely talented lady's blog, Lisa Lara. Lisa and I "work" together as DT members for Clear Dollar Stamps. So how fun this blog hop was for me, nestled between such wonderful friends.
