very first card...

I thought it would be fun to flashback to the beginning (well almost the beginning) of my stamping career. This is the very first card that I uploaded to SCS. It is from September 14, 2004. I used to have an obsession with Passion Pink. Today, I haven't used Passion Pink in ages! Anyway, I hope you get a little laugh and enjoy my blast to the past!

I have been stamping cards but I can't show them to you as I have submitted them for a card layout design team...something I said I wasn't going to do. Submit to a design team that it. I did get my entry at the very last moment and that will probably be looked at in a not favorable light. I don't blame them a bit if that is the case. The submission is at Page Plans. I love their sketches, and their designers are fantastic! You should really go check them out and add their blog to your reader (or subscribe to the feed in a different way). I just got a look at this week's sketch and it is SO cute!

Anyway, I know I will have something for you for sure tomorrow and depending on how my stamping goes today for a least a couple of more days this week. I am working all week this week at the Wildcat Shop on campus from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. so you can see that I will have to pre-post most of the week. If I don't have something new for you each day please keep checking back!

I have a little sale for you guys to go check out! Amuse is currently selling downloadable 2009 calendars in three different sizes for your holiday crafting needs. I bought two sizes...both square (to use on altered coasters) and 4-bar. The best part about these calendars would be that the proceeds from the "sale" of these calendars will all be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. There are actually 3 different donation levels, $4, $10, and $20 per calendar. Now, I'm sure you are wondering why I would be mentioning this and besides the fact that the calendars are way cool and it is a great cause...both my grandmother and my mom died of Non-Hodkins Lymphoma. They both valiantly fought their diseases for over a year but ultimately were overcome by them. My grandmother was 69 when she died and a year and a half after grandma died my mom died at 49. I know they are both waiting for me in Glory but I still miss them both...a lot. Why not take a moment to check out the links I gave you above and and donate to the LLS by purchasing a 2009 calendar or two!

I hope you have a super Sunday!Angelic

How fun that you still have your first uploaded card! I joined Splitcoast around the same time, and didn't even bother to keep anything from my first couple years of uploads, I don't think. Yours is a very cute card, Lorie, but you've definitely grown in your stamping skills in the last four years!! :-)

I bought all 3 of those calendars the first day they were available! :) I think through today (Sunday) A Muse is matching all donations. So if someone is thinking about getting the calendar....they should do it today!

This is awesome for your first card! I will never show anyone my first card. It has never been uploaded because I could never take a decent picture of it. My mom does have it somewhere but I don't think I'm brave enough to show it. Good luck with Page Plans!
