What a fantastic opportunity for us to display the products we have loved for so long, but unfortunately are not going to be available for very much longer.

I hope you are enjoying this Blog Hop. 

Now for my creations.
I have chosen the stamp set 'Timeless Talk'  126607              Probably because they are closer to my vintage lol and the fact that I like vintage stamps helps as well.

  1. Love your cards Donna - Timeless Talk really is a gorgeous stamp set :)

    1. Thank you Rachael for you lovely comment. I love Timeless Talk as well but haven't used it nearly enough. Might see what else I can come up with.

  2. Wow! So much work's gone into your blog post Donna.

    1. Thank you Keryn and also thank you for all of your patience and help. I'm getting there just very slowly.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous Donna :-)

  4. Your cards are all lovely, but my stand out fave is the 'Old Gramophone'. Thanks for joining us on your first blog hop! Looking forward to what you create for the next. Kelly x

    1. Thank you Kelly. It has been a very steep learning curve for me. Thank you for your help and patience.

  5. Love the black and white penny farthing card and the ladies gramaphone one - that's a great idea to have the 'music' coming out like that!!

  6. Thank you Richelle. I don't have anything with music in it so I had to compromise and made it a bit more girly with the flowers and the hearts.

  7. What a great range of cards. I love that stamp set and the old world feel to it. Love them all.

    1. Thanks Narelle. Me too. So sad when they go. Apart from the carryovers from the 2014-15 catty there is nothing in this line in the new catty. I'll just have to use the ones I have already.
      ;o ) Hee Hee!

  8. Great Cards Donna ... I often look at that set and wonder what to do with it :)

    1. Thank You Leonie. I love the old world designs. I don't play with them often enough though. When the new stamps arrive I tend to use them more and forget about the older ones I have, all 200+ of them. Can't bear to part with any. Must try to work through them all. Need to get a ROUND TOIT ! Happy Stampin'
