Stamp-a-Faire Time After Time Challenge: Thanks for Everything


Happy Sunday my friends.  I'm popping in with a card to share for the SAF:  Time After Time Challenge.  I think this will be the only challenge I'll have time to play along with for this year's SAF.  Such a fun challenge this is to look back at a card you made previously and redo it.  I started my blog five years ago and there is a lot of ribbon on my cards.  I still love ribbon, but am a bigger fan of bows than the knot on the card shown below.  And the poor buttons all by themselves.  I'm sure in another five years I'll look back at the card I created today and see other ways to change it, but for today I'm pleased with it.  I thought it would also be fun to show how the colors were chosen.  The colors were from one of Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Challenge.  How many of you played along with one of those?  I loved them!  Okay...off to get ready for the week.  Hope you all are finding lots of time to craft.

  3. I don't know if it's fun or embarrassing to look back on my earlier cards. Your updated one is so "you" and I love it.

  5. A beautiful card! Love the sentiment-combination with the stripe and flower! Strange how it is if you look back at cards made so long ago... Then you can see in wich direction you've grown! Hugs, Gerrina

  11. Lynn your style is so much more refined now and when i look back tot he beginning I am so surprised how much I have too. I love ribbon, and I rarely use it anymore. I am terrible at tying bows which is my preference! Love your new card, it is classic you!
