D.I.V.A.S. OBG Blog Hop!

It's time for a blog hop!


After a brief summer break we are back on the third Wednesday of the month with the Design D.I.V.A.S. Oldies But Goodies blog hop.  This is when we use neglected and forgotten items from our stashes.  The Design D.I.V.A.S. is a private Facebook group, which is a branch of the Original Design D.I.V.A.S. on the Splitcoaststampers website. The acronym for the D.I.V.A.S is, Divine, Inspirational, Virtuous, Artistic (or annointed) Sistahs. This is a very talented and supportive group, which I'm blessed to be a part of .  If you came here from the uber-talented Cindy's blog you are on the right track.  She is a tough act to follow and I am honored to be in her company! To start at the beginning of the hop pop on over to see what our amazing Heather has put together.

My "Oldie But Goodie" was discovered while I was reorganizing one corner of my studio. I opened a drawer and found a package of these pretty blue library card pockets! I have know idea what I bought them for, but now one of them is the centerpiece of this thank you card. The front of the card is in four sections and covered with four pieces of dp from a 7 Gypsies stack, which I haven't used in forever! The sentiment tag is also from that stack and I put a rub on "thank you".  The inside tag was also found in that neglected drawer, along with about 49 others in a package of tags. Don't ask cuz I don't know. How do we accumulate all this stuff?  The butterfly isn't all that old and came from a K & Co set of 3D stickers.


It might be a pain in the you-know-what, but reorganizing now and then is like shopping all over again!  Now, hop on over to Maria's and see what treasure she has made from her OBG stash!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!

Wow Barb, this is stunning!! Love that butterfly! How funny you talk about reorganizing your space, I did the same thing two weeks ago and it took me 2 full days! And found all kinds of what I'll now call "new" things that I forgot I had! Time to put them to use!!

LOVE that pocket!!!! Pretty papers and colors. That butterfly is gorgeous! Nicely done!!!

Cheri said...

What a great "surprise" card to gift someone special from reorganizing your stuff. Any message of caring and love could be stamped on that insert. I love dimension on cards and this one has it in "plus".

Alice Wertz said...

very pretty. love your butterfly!

Nancy said...

Great idea to put the pocket right on the front! Pretty papers and pretty colors!
Funny how we forget what we have stashed away, and then nice surprises when we come across it again. :)
Hugs!
