Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop




I hope you can join us on our Design Divas hop today! We will revisit some of our oldies but goodies. I'm sure we all have some of those treasures we will never part with!
I used a retired Stampin' Up set called Close To Nature. I kept it simple, embossing the white cardstock with the Bella Toile background stamp and a Happy Birthday sentiment with some silver hardware. All supplies are SU.

You should have arrived here from Maria's blog.
Your next stop will be to see what Karen has made for you today. Enjoy the hop!
