Flashback Friday 20.0 Celebration



Happy Friday, everybody! Today I'm taking part in a super fun blog hop celebrating the 2oth Flashback Friday Challenge! If you are hopping, you should have arrived here from Jana's blog, Studio 312. If not, you should start from the beginning at the Flashback Friday blog for your chance to win a fabulous prize (more on that in a minute)!!

So, our Guest Designer for Flashback Friday 20.0 is Jen, and she is challenging all Flashback players to re-post their very first black and white card. So, here is mine, coming to you from July 26, 2010:

While looking back through my posts (which is always so much fun!), I realized that while I have lots of black and white cards with a splash of color, I rarely (if ever?) make just black and white cards. So I went with this one as my first because it has just a bit of {neutral} kraft thrown in. I really do need to do just black and white more often--it is so elegant!

We would LOVE to see your very first black and white card!! Come play along with us and link up to Flashback Friday 20.0!!

Now, about that prize package I mentioned . . . here's what you are playing for:

Isn't that the best? To be eligible for the prize package, hoppers will need to leave comments on all blog hop posts AND link up for Flashback Friday 20.0. You get another chance to win if you 'follow' the Flashback Friday blog or become a new follower. The blog hop will be open for the duration of the Flashback Friday 20.0 challenge.

What are you waiting for? Hop along to see the rest of the FF GD's very first black and white cards--the next stop on the blog hop is Julie at her blog, The Last Minute Crafter-- and then go and show us yours. Good luck in the prize drawing!!

Thanks for stopping by,
Emily

What a fabulous card, Emily, but I think a card made in the future is a little freaky, July 2012! Except that it was a typo, it is a great idea though. I could not resist as this is too good a card for even 2010~Just fabulous. Hope you have a wonderful evening.
