Flashback Week!!

This is my 2nd of 5 posts today please scroll down for my Willow Sketchie & pop back later for more!

We have a fab really easy challenge for you over at MAWTT this week

FLASHBACK!

 Post an old project that you are proud of .. could be one of your first using a particular technique, a project you won a challenge with. Or just a project you really liked ....see I told you it was easy, you don't even have to make anything!

It took me ages & ages to decide on what creation to show you, I thought about the first card I posted on my blog, the first card I made using Promarkers, my first DT creation for MAWTT....in the end I got it down to 4 of my favourites...then I remembered this one & it wins hands down!


I made this heart shaped card for Nige's Aunty to give to her hubby on their Golden Wedding Anniversary! It was the first time I had used my Celebrations board by the Glitter Girls & it was a joint effort really I made the card & the box & stuck it all together but Nige made the verse heart shaped & the photo took ages to print off to fit the heart perfectly...but he has so much more patience than me, which is a good thing! lol

I hope you enjoyed looking at my Flashback, I hope you will join in with us this week as we have a fab sponsor

The prize will be THREE FREE months of The How to WOW Paper Crafting Techniques Club.


Also this week the DT are takin the week off from commenting, as a few are getting ready to go away & some of us have kids off school....we will be doing the winner & top 3 as normal & will resume with our commenting next week!
Have fun Hugs xx
