Part 2 of Feature Friday and a Winner!!!!!

Hello and Welcome back to Flashback Friday!!!!  I meant to pop in last night but well, didn't, so I'm combining some Featured Cards along with the winner.

First off, a ginormous WOOT WOOT to:

My Flashback Friday 15.0 Sponsor!!!!

This lovely {ippity} set will go to the winner of Flashback Friday 15.0!

I also wanted to thank my oh-so-wonderfully-talented Flashback Friday 15.0 Guest Designer!!!


I've been a long time fan of Els' blog and was absolutely THRILLED to read this about her:

I KNOW...she made the Basic Grey Design Team!!!!!!!!  Yahoooooooooooooo Els!!!!!

Els picked such a great challenge, I think that everyone had so much fun looking back to find their first Fall card.  Here are a couple more that I wanted to feature yesterday:

Bernice linked up this CUTE Halloween card:

Darling images!!!  They are by Karber Digital Images which is a company that Bernice co-created!  Fun thing is, you can also buy her images at Sparkle Creations Store which was my Flashback Friday 6.0 Sponsor!

Erin shared this card with us:

Classic elegance...clean & crisp!

Check out Toni's fall beauty...

Masking and Scoring....a delish combo!

Here's Merry's fun card!

Check out this interesting trivia from Merry:

 I don't normally do cards by season as here in tropical northern Australia we have a Wet Season and a Dry Season.  Apr to Sep is cooler than the remainder of the year which is hot and humid.

Thanks to EVERYBODY that played along with us for this challenge.  I hope that you enjoyed yourself as much as I did.  I know that some of you 'cringed' to be featured on the Flashback Friday blog :) but it is all about seeing your growth and the changes that go along with it...  I'm always amazed when I see similarities in my style from long ago and it seems that a common comment is the lack of photog skills..LOL..personally, I still struggle with that:)

I know, I know...get on with it woman!

Okay, so I use to pick the winner.  The winner of Flashback Friday 15.0 will win:

1.  {ippity} Life's Little Moments set!
2.  Guest Designer of Flashback Friday 16.0!
3. Pick the Challenge for Flashback Friday 16.0!

The lucky duck is:

Pam L!!!!!!


We'll be back on October 7th {taking a week off} with the new Flashback Friday 16.0!!!!!

Thanks again to everybody that played....I truly appreciate your support!!!!!

My wonderful Guest Designer for Flashback Friday 15.0 is:


My name is Els, but most of you probably know me as Be(e). I'm a wife, a mom of two children, a stamper, cardmaker, scrapbooker, a paper-addict.
About three years ago I started stamping and making cards again. I was instantly hooked. Not too much later, I took the plunge to scrapbooking as well. As for most people, my kids are my biggest inspiration and my favorite subjects. Occasionally, I make mini albums or other items too. I love making cards and layouts for challenges. Since two years I have a blog,, where I share all my crafting madness. Come and say 'hi' some time, I'd like to meet all of you. It is one of my dreams to be part of a design team some day.

I'm thrilled to be the guest designer here today!! Thank you very much for having me, Amy!!

Thank YOU Els:)
Els has picked a challenge for Flashback Friday 15.0:

**First Fall Card**

Here's Els' card...make sure you pop over to her blog to read all about it:

I'm thrilled with this challenge...I think that Fall is my very favorite season!

This is a card that was posted onto my blog back in November 2007! It was about post 4 on my blog since November 2007 is when I started this whole journey.

The stamps are by Flourishes and the paper is Apple Cider from Stampin' Up...booooooo both are discontinued!

I still love this card...although if I was going to do it over again, I'd use wider ribbon:)  I was really big into taking pictures at an angle, still can't remember why I did that:)

I can't wait to see your first fall card!
