It's a Flashback Friday Blog Hop


Welcome to the Flashback Friday blog hop. I am so happy you joined us and so excited to be a part of the celebration. If you have arrived from Julie's blog, you are in the right place. If not you can begin the hop at the Flashback Friday blog and hop along.

Flashback Friday 20.0 is your first black and white card. This was as close to black and white as I have gotten. I have never done a true black and white card or project.


I still love this card. I hand stitched that flower. It was a lot of work but so worth it.

Next you are off to Els blog. I hope you will link up for the Friday challenge. This is such a great way to see your progression as a crafter and gain inspiration from some of your past projects.

Don't forget to leave comments for your chance to win some lovely prizes.

Take care.
