Blast from the past


I was really trying to get some stuff done around the house yesterday, so I didn't get a chance to finish a card. So I thought I would go back and grab a picture from a card I made about a year ago. This was one of my favorites at the time and looking at it now I think, oh I could have added this or that or.... It is fun to go back and look at the work you had done in the past and see how much you have grown. Seems as though I have grown a lot in A LOT of ways in the past year. A year older, more inspired and a bit more enthusiastic about my dream of being "known" in the paper crafting world. I wonder where I will be next year, just have to wait and see. I should really post the very first card I ever made as a demonstrator almost 3 years ago. Maybe I will do that if you wanna see it some time. I have it up on my book shelf as a reminder of where I started.
See ya tomorrow for my Friday Card Flick!!
Have a great day!

Yes, you have grown as a papercrafter but I think this card is simple and elegant! I love the neutral colors. I would love to see your very first card.

I still love this card....so simple but beautiful. It was hard for me to give mine away, but now I have a reminder to make it again soon ;) Please share your early work, maybe it will inspire more to get creative seeing where you are at now and where you began.
Hugs

I do like the simplicity of this card. I initially thought the stitches were real.

You've got talent, girl! It just keeps getting bigger!

It is always good to look back at where you began and how far you have come and in the meantime, you have found what your passion is. It would be great to see your first card. I look back at some of my first scrapbook pages and can't believe I thought they were just great, but other people think they are. So it helps others to see the simple beginning and where they can end up. Just my thoughts on the subject.

Hi Pam

I'm not very good at this computer stuff. Hopefully you won't get this twice. I vote you post your first card. When I look back at my first scrapbook, I see how far I have come, but also the industry!
Post it!!

Gorgeous! I love the stitching along the flourish; what a fresh way to use a classic stamp. :0)
