A new card and an old one

Hi! This is such a great week – it will end with a weekend I’ve been waiting for since March. It’s time for this:

A two day Crop and Expo. My mom and I will have soooo much fun. And hopefully get some scrapping done too. I know there will be some serious shopping… Yihaaa!!!!

Here is a card I did this afternoon with some of the papers I bought last time, in March, and have been hoarding ever since… Time to make space for some new ones, right!?!

Bingo - missing you_redigerad-1

The stamps are all from Prickley Pear, papers are Graphic 45. I used  Kazan’s sketch #62 from 2Sketches4You.


Over to the old one. Amy continues to challenge us to show our oldies. In her, and her guest DT Rose’s  Flashback Friday 3.0 the task is to dig up the first card made for a challenge. I actually found mine in my first ever gallery over at Scrappiz (Swedish forum). It was made for a recipe challenge and was uploaded February 23 2007, I had been scrapbooking for two months and this was my second card I ever made.

I remember these papers, thick Crate, soooo beautiful. And lookie, I masked the background stamp, stamped in gold. I don’t think I’ve used that inkpad ever since.  I think the card is ok considering. I like the doodling… LOL!

If you want to play this FUN challenge, you can find all the info HERE.

My dear friend, the minute I saw that sketch over 2sketches4you, I thought: "oh, this is kind of sketch for Tesa to work on"... and there you are, making this gorgeous card!
I really don't know why you've been hoarding those so beautiful dp (well, I think you should scrap them, that way they'll stay with you... LOL).
And your old card is stunning! But I'm not used to dark cards from you.

I envy you for 2 days of crop and shop.... I wish I could go too....
Have fun the two of you!

Love the first card and my favorite flower stamp that you used. Oh and the flashback friday card is also wonderful. I can't believe that was only the 2nd card you had ever made. Look how far we've come.
