Good morning and Happy Hump Day!!! It is time for this month's Facebook Designing D.I.V.A.S. "Oldies But Goodies" Blog Hop!!! YAY!!! It has been a while since I played along with the talented ladies in the monthly blog hop, and I just could not go another month without joining them!!! They are all so uplifting and inspiring I didn't care how busy I was...I was definitely hopping along in September...and if they put up next month's sign-up list...I am all in!!! In all honesty, it was because of the wonderful ladies in this group I decided to start up a new blog. My original blog was attacked by some kind of cooties, and I fought with it and fought with it to try and get it right...no luck! Out of frustration, I deleted it and thought I was finished with blog headaches. Everything changed when I joined this amazing group of inspirational ladies:o) Thanks to them for encouraging me to give this whole blog thing another go!! I have been having a blast...and so far..no cooties! :o)
Okay, I know you didn't come here for a novella. The concept of the Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop is to get us to use those creative "must-haves" that have been sorely neglected (or forgotten about) for at least six-months and create a card or project with them. We have the blog hop to encourage one another to use our hoarded goodies and to inspire others to do the same. For my card, I opted to use one of my sadly neglected House Mouse stamps (my first stamping love), one of my forgotten Indentz embossing folders, my Tim Holtz paper piercing ruler, and a Making Memories charm that I've had stashed away for about -dare I say it- five years. If you are interested in knowing specifics about the things I used in the creation of today's card, I will post a detailed list of the card supplies at the end of this post. I opted to keep the card super simple, so these adorable mice could take center stage.
Speaking of House Mouse...last week, the wonderful designers of the House Mouse & Friends Challenge Blog celebrated their 3rd birthday...and they are celebrating BIG!!! There are awesome prizes at the challenge blog; and if you participate in the blog hop, there are loads of blog candy to be won along the mousieriffic journey:o) If you are a mousie fan and would like to play along, you can find my House Mouse & Friends Birthday blog candy HERE.
