Design D.I.V.A.S. Oldies But Goodies Hop and DP2 Challenge

Lately I've been really busy with photo shoots so cardmaking has taken a back seat.  However, I needed a card for a friend who turned 90 years young last week, and it just happened to fit in with the D.I.V.A.S. Oldies But Goodies blog hop and the challenge over at Mo Manning's DP2 Challenge.

So, first to the OBD Blog Hop.

On the third Wednesday of each month the Facebook chapter of the Design D.I.V.A.S. has 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 anointed) Sistahs.  This is a very talented and supportive group, which I'm blessed to be a part of.  Thank you for stopping by and we hope you enjoy the hop. If you came here from the lovely Vicki's blog you are on the right track.  To start at the beginning hop on over to Maria's awesome blog.  

For my card I used a Mo Manning digi "The Engineer" which I haven't used for over a year.  The dp is from a neglected stack and the brads are the last of a package I've had since Washington crossed the Potomac!  

I colored this fun image with Copics.  As I mentioned, the card is for a 90-year old friend, so the sentiment on the inside read "Growing older is mandatory.  Growing up is optional."  Talk about and oldie but goodie! Happy Birthday, Harold!

Now, I am also entering this in the DP2 challenge #134 "Tickle My Funny Bone".  The only requirement is to use one of Mo's images, and she has plenty that will make you chuckle!  Hop on over to see the fun the DT had with this challenge. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Be sure to move on to Mary's blog for her inspiring project.  We appreciate the time you spend on our Design D.I.V.A.S. blog hop.

Hi Barb! This Mo image always makes me smile. This guy reminds me a little bit of my mother's uncle...he worked on the railroad and had a weird mustache like this image has! Your coloring is delicious...and I love the DPs and brads. Thanks so much for joining us again at Mo's! Hugs. Pat Frank

Wonderful card, Barb! I love the way you've 'grounded' this fun image with the grass and soil, and the paper is great for a masculine card! Glad you joined us in Mo's Challenge.

What a darling image, Barb, and it's perfect for a 90 year old!! Love your awesome coloring, too!!! I have always wanted to ride on a train so last summer we took several of the Grands on an old train that takes a tour through the Texas Hill Country...what fun!!!
