Flashback Friday 3.0

See original post HERE

Check it out...I feel so official:)

Like my new Flashback Friday logo? It is by Lisa Arana...of dahlhouse designs. She is also responsible for my new siggie too:)

Okay, just some deets on the Flashback Friday festivities....I'll try to sling them out once a month. It is really a reminder of 'how far we've come' in our crafting/blogging....I think that we tend to forget that aspect and I've always been one to reminisce about things...get all nostalgic...

♥♥Edited to add: Please do not link your original blog post that contains your flashback card/project... you should re-post your Flashback Friday card onto your blog...that's the fun of it...taking ownership of your flashback the present day...haha...that's why some people don't want to play...but it is all for fun...♥♥

I do have a big surprise...the most fabbie Emily at E.A.D Designs is my first SPONSOR!!!!

Woot Woot....check out the E.A.D Designs Stickerz prize package that is up for grabs for one random winner of Flashback Friday 3.0!!!!

Haha...I'm super lucky to be on the DT for E.A.D Designs because Emily loves Owlies too!!!
Thanks Emily!!!!

So 3.0 is compliments of the fabbie Rose Miller....What I'll start doing is have the winner of the Flashback Friday pick the next Flashback challenge...muwahahaha......that's what I call creative delegating...

So Rose's idea is to post your first challenge card that you ever made....before I show you our cards, lets first learn a smidge about Rose :
I live in California with my wonderful husband of three years, my mother, and our two spoiled furbabies, which are always "helping" me make my cards. I started making cards almost two years ago. I only wish I lived in a larger town just so I could shop in a "real" craft store rather then "on line" for the good stuff !! I don't have a "style" as I am more of a "free spirit" ( or rebel ) LOL

She is so kind to share her first challenge card:

Isn't it gorgeous?? Look at all the layers and different patterns...the scallops...the distressing...excellent my friend. It is really ironic because it was for a 365 Cards Challenge!!! LOL

Thanks Rose for the FUN Flashback Challenge!!!

So here you go, this is mine...or what I could is from my Splitcoaststampers Gallery Archives...seriously....

Circa January 2, 2006 peeps....

{chuckle} Even back then, I was a coffee-a-holic....Evidently it was a challenge for another site:
Coffee Retiform

One of my New Year Resolutions is to try new techniques. This is a card that I did for another board. The latte cup and sugar packets are by Ann-ticipations....saw the cup used in a card on the other board and knew that I HAD to get it.

Okay, so I'm wondering what challenge site it was? I'd remember now? I barely remember what I had for dinner last night!

Interesting things to note:

1. it is an all-stamped patterned paper!
2. monochromatic bright and funky colors
3. somethings never change, definitely my love of coffee is still strong...
4. Here's a link to a retiform tut by Beate over on SCS.
5. I scanned my cards back then...

Okay, hopefully I did it right and there should be an inlinkz attached to this post...if not, bear with me and I'll get it fixed...sheesh, I'm so not techie:)

You'll have until October 15th at 11:59 PM PDT to link up....
