First ever ...

I'm going to pop over to Erika's today and share an 'oldie on Friday'.  This is the first ever card I entered into a CD Sunday challenge back in April 2011.


The image and sentiment are Jayne Nestorenko 'Patchwork Polly - Olivia' - I actually did some stamping in the old days! The papers are from Sharon Duncan's Embossibilities Everyday CD.

Why don't you pop over to Erika's and share an oldie - it can be any old project you have made yourself just for fun, it would be great if you joined in, just leave a message and Erika will visit you to see what you have picked to share.

You should also pop over and take a look a the current CD Sunday challenge - the theme is Pearls and Lace - why don't you grab a CD and join us.
