Crafty Cardmakers - First and Last xxx

Hi all
We have the greatest wee challenge over on Crafty Cardmakers for you all!

"We'd like to see your LATEST OR GREATEST creation so anything you like or a particular favourite AND here's the important bit, we'd also like to see your FIRST or the OLDEST one you have a photo of! I can see you cringing and thinking oooooh nooooo mine's really baaaad! Don't worry, we ALL started somewhere and I hope you can see from the samples that everybody was new once and with a bit of practice you can get better and you'll also see how much you've already got better by digging out your first efforts!"

The Rules:

You can enter up to 3 times but each must contain a picture of one of your first designs and must be different techniques or items e.g. first card, first stamped card, first scrapbook page, first tag etc. They must also be separate posts.

You can enter your latest creations or your favourites previously published alongside your old design. You can enter in as many other challenges as you wish but many challenges do not accept older creations so just be mindful of that.


Please link back to this blog and mention Crafty Cardmakers in your post.

The challenge runs for 4 weeks from 13th Dec and closes at 9am GMT on Monday 10th January


We are very proud to be sponsored by a number of very kind stores for this challenge with lots of winners for this one and the prizes on offer are...

£10 voucher from Joanna Sheen

£10 voucher from The Stampman

$10 voucher for Stitchy Bear Stamps

Pack of 5 promarkers from Letraset

£10 worth of stamps of your choice from Stamping all day


So onto my wee cards ......

Your first card looks very elegant & your latest looks totally awesome! love the bling, the picture makes it look like little lights! Was great to be on the CCM DT with you! Take Care.

Aww I like your first card - at least it's tasteful unlike my lurid pink creation! And your hubby will love his Christmas card, it's fab :o) Lisa x

Isn't it funny how your style changes over the years. I've gone to classes for ages and still meet the rest of the girls from the classregularly. As much a social occasion as anything! I'm sure your first card is much nicer than mine, couldn't believe I still had that one! And your latest is such a fun card. Just looked at yesterdays post too (up to my ears in cards yesterday and didn't manage any visits) and what fantastic cards you showed. And great pics of Tillie. She's really sweet.

I'm going to miss the CCM DT but I'll still visit you and see what you're up to!

Fab 1st card especially for an 8 year old. As for your hubby's card, it's just gorgeous. Love that image and the lights. xx

Wow, cool card with the lovely little LED's. Your 1st card was really nice anyhoo, I think cardmaking now is more about having a lot better choice of materials than when I started back in 2002. Having said that I cannot bear to part with anything I have bought so have got loads of stuff I probably won't use yet can't get rid of LOL

Have a fantastic Christmas wee Melly and I'll catch you in the New Year.

Lots of love
