Flashback Friday 22.0!!

***This is my second post for today - there is BIG NEWS down below! or click here***

This is pretty big news too - oh em gee. Check what I'm a part of!

If you've never played along before, Flashback Friday is a super fun linky party, celebrating our very "firsts" as crafters. Do you cringe when you see your project? Or do you still love it? It may have been back when you first started blogging, it may have been a few weeks ago - but we want to see & share your firsts, and all of us can see how we've changed & improved. Make sure you're re-posting your project, not linking up to the original post - part of the fun is looking back & sharing your reaction! For Flashback Friday 22.0 we're looking back at our first cards using DIE CUTS.

Amy Tsuruta is the fabulous fun host, and I'm honoured to play along! This time around the format for Flashback Friday is a little different, and we're starting with a hop! First of all, I'll share the amazing prize details, sponsored by the generous Sylvia at Sylvia's Corner:

In Sylvia's own words, the prize details:
The prize is composed of a Stampin'Up! Sale-A-Bration package I put together. There is a Everyday Enchantment Tote, a 12"x12" package of Everyday Enchantment Designer Paper(12pieces), 10 card bases, two of each of these colors, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo, and Wisteria Wonder, 20" of Baja Breeze satin pleated ribbon, 2yds each Everyday Enchantment Organdy Ribbon Lucky Limeade and Calypso Coral, 10 Everyday Enchantment brads and 10 shaped clear buttons, and the Sale-A-Bration Fresh Vintage stamp set(wood mount, unmounted). This collection is sponsored by Sylvia's corner Etsy shop, where I sell my handmade cards, banners, gift bags and albums.

What a fun prize! 
Here's my first card using die cuts - just plain ol' circle & oval Nesties, but still awesome. I use those dies every time I sit down to create.

I still love my Nesties, and I do love that little chickie, and Liquid Applique for whipped cream? I don't love the photo, but hey, I was using a scanner way back in September 2010 (the olden days? lol).

So, without further ado - go hop! Check out everyone's first cards using die cuts, and then dig deep into your own archives & link up your own at the Flashback Friday blog before April 13. Oops! APRIL 20!

The blog hop starts at (SPOILER ALERT!)

Have fun on the hop!

Hi Jessi!

It's Nance, your fellow guest designer at Flashback Friday this week. That's one adorable chick on your card! This is my first time guesting on a challenge. I am so thrilled. It's been a blast so far. If you read my profile, I'm a mom of 2 boys also, although mine are both in college now. Have a lovely weekend!
