Flashback Friday 4.0!

Hello and welcome to Flashback Friday 4.0!!!

I was thrilled with the participation in 3.0 and look forward to seeing what you'll be sharing with us for this round!!


I'm so excited to announce that 4.0 is being sponsored by



Check out the fabulously fun prize...


Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type
and
Sassafras Apple Jack Cardstock Stickers!!!

Make sure you pop over to Torendi....it's a shop chock full of goodness...



I wanted to remind you that our Flashback Friday 3.0 winner was Crafty Linby!  What is super exciting is just last week she graduated from the Henley Business School with a Masters Degree in Business Administration!!!  A Huge Congrats Lynn!!!!!


So Lynn's choice for Flashback Friday 4.0?


Post your first Christmas Card that you blogged!


Here's Lynn's from October 2009:



I LOVE it...I adore the "merry christmas"!!!  I love alphas!!!  To find out more deets about Lynn's fabbie card, pop over to her blog, Crafty Linby.


Are you ready for my card????  It is back from 2007 peeps...November 23, 2007....boooo hooooo...no comments:(



I'd say one of the most noticable changes is yet again, my photography...I prefer stark white these days but typically with Fabriano card bases like this card has, I pop some patterned paper behind it to make the card stand out....other than the base, it is pure Stampin' Up....how fitting since it is Stampin' Up week over at 365 cards!  Definitely a classic CAS card!

Just a reminder that if you play along you'll need to repost your first Christmas card onto your blog...that's the fun of the Flashback Friday challenges...please do not just link to your original post:)

Flashback Friday 4.0 is open until November 12th @ 11:59 pm PST!!
