Flashback Friday 6.0!!!

Welcome to Flashback Friday 6.0!!!

We have the spectacular Sparkle Creations as our Sponsor for 6.0!!!

The random winner of Flashback Friday 6.0 will receive a brand spankin' new Sparkle Creations stamp that will be released in January!!!

My Guest Designer is the oh-so-creative Yvonne Yam!!!!

Here's a little bit about Yvonne:

Hi there! My name is Yvonne and I love to make stuff! Cardmaking came to me in an epiphany in March 2009 when I nearly drowned in paper scraps and I haven't looked backed since. :) My style is constantly evolving...but generally involves upcycling of some kind and incorporating "found" objects in my projects! :)

Okay, okay...I know...I are all curious about Yvonne's it is:

**The first card you blogged about that featured an unexpected find from your home**

Yvonne's card is circa October 2009 that features a tiara...more deets on her card can be found on her blog:

Do More with Less

Isn't it magnificent....LOVE the crown and of course, the doily!!!!

Here's my take on Yvonne's challenge...not much explaining to do:

This project is from December 2008 called Crazy Tasty

I have two words for you: 

People either like Spam or don' momma makes me the Spam is chock full of rice...sooo bad for me but sigh, oh well.  My momma always recycles the tins to me too:)

I made this particular one for her....filled it with these little cards...

Circa 2008 and I still adore those Hero Arts Japanese Doll Stamps...

This one is my how her hair is up in a bun:)

Okay us what you got! 

You have until 11:59 pm PST Friday, January 7th, 2011 to link up!!!

  13. Hi Amy!

    Always love checking out what Yvonne is up about creative! :>

    I have a good friend who loves her some Spam. But, what I'm loving is the recycled tin!! I've been collecting my mint tins for a long time now (the ones I can hide from my wee girl who likes to steal them to house her rock & pebble collections....she's never found a rock or itty bitty piece of gravel that she hasn't liked! lol :>), for the purpose of repurposing them! Your tin & card are oh so cute!

    Hope you're off to a great start on your weekend! :>

  14. This is adorable Amy! Too cute - my MIL always ate spam (not one of my favorites though!)

  15. oh i love spam!! might have to get that recipe from your mom :)

    super cute idea to upcycle and adorable cards too!

    will take a bit to see if i have anything for this challenge, might have to make something so i can play alone.........LOVE Yvonne stamps :)

  16. Amy your project is too fabulous! I have never had Spam in my 40 years of living...

  17. Oh, HEAVENS! There is TOO much fun going on around here! What a great challenge! Yeeeee Haw! Love these pieces - you TWO are amazing!

  18. Fun new challenge, but not an easy one! Hope to find something in my records :)
