Flashback Friday 19.0 - CAS

Clean and simple? Hmm, not really my forte. I had to dig around, and found 2 from my first few months of blogging, complete with scanned/washed out pictures. Here's the very first one, from October 2010:

Original post here, with supplies

Besides wanting to go back & learn how to use my camera ages before I actually did, I think I might still be happy with this card. I do sort of want to reach in and ink the edges of the embossed panel & tag, though :)

Anyhow, if you'd like to play along over at Flashback Friday, poke around through your blog & find your first posted CAS card & link up by January 27. Have fun!

xoxo,
Jessi

That's a really pretty sympathy card Jessi, I mean to play along with this challenge too as it's fun bringing older creations to the fore again:)
Yep back to school is both good for James and definitely good for me ;)

Wow, this is amazing, Jessi! I wouldn't have been able to tell if this was current or past so it's standing the test of time. I think you need to do CAS more often! ;)

Hey, Jessi! That's a flashback? Could have fooled me--it looks amazing! I love your idea for this, and it really does make a great sympathy card. I hope to play along with the flashback challenge later this week!

Haha, yes, I cringed at some of my early (and sometimes not-so-early) pictures, too! This card is fabulous, though, I like the white embossed background myself. :)

Guess what I got in the mail today?!? An envelope filled with poop and pee references!! I am in love with my card and even Mr Corgi commented on how perfect it was for me! Plus paper piecing the envelope?!? You spoil me!
