Denami Blog Hop

Happy Sunday!




DeNami January Blog Hop


I am joining in for my very first Denami Blog Hop today. I'm actually a bit apprehensive, just that I get it right, I always worry about blog hops that I will do all of the linking properly!

So here is my entry for the hop ....



This Denami stamp is YEARS old, and I mean years! I had a look at the date and it's 1999! How old does that make me feel?! BUT.. I still think it's a gorgeous stamp and still contemporary. Often stamps go out of date, don't you think, but this one seems to be timeless :o)

This card is loosely based on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, #29

Using my scallop die cutter I simply cut lots of scallops which were then assembled at the bottom, and I attached the image at the top, stamped the sentiment, tied on a piece of ribbon and the card was finished. 

See below for the list of participants...  If you're following the blog hop and have come from Kristy's blog then you're in the right place!  If you've lost your way then pop back to the Denami blog to start the hop from the beginning.
