Design D.I.V.A.S. Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop

It's the third Wednesday of October which means it's time for the Facebook chapter of the Design D.I.V.A.S. to have our Oldies But Goodies (OBD) 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 . October is a busy month for everyone, but we have four die-hard D.I.V.A.S. participating.

 I've been reorganizing my studio and found lots of neglected stamps and papers that I wanted to let see the light of day.  I pulled out this adorable Stampin' Up set from 2004 and used DCWV glitter paper that I've had for a few years.  So, I would say these definitely qualify as OBDs.

 Yep, I still have the original box.

I didn't get this done in time to use natural lighting for the photo, so please excuse the glare.  It is glittery paper.  I used a Martha Stewart snowflake border punch on the burgundy glitter paper.

 Now this is one serious shopper! She is colored with Copics and rhinestones baubles on her clever Christmas tree dress.  If our winter is like last year I might be wearing skates to shop, too --- hahahaha! 

The sentiment on the inside of the card is part of the set.  Cute, huh!

Thanks for stopping by today. Please be sure to visit my sistahs Mary, Sue, and Cindy and leave them some love, too.
