Flashback Friday 20.0 ---- Time to Celebrate



If you have just arrived from Sylvia's (GD Flashback Friday 18.0) you are in the right place.  If not and you would like to be part of this fun blog hop please visit Flashback Friday for more details.

Yes, Amy is celebrating the fact that Flashback Friday has reached its 20th Challenge.  There are prizes on offer.  Amy is celebrating with a blog hop to past Guest Designer's blogs.  Yes, I was lucky to be Guest Designer for Challenge 18.0.  

The theme for Flashback Friday 20.0 is the first Black and White card that you posted.  Here is mine:

I didn't think I would be delving back so far.  This is one of my first ever posts and is the first card I entered into a challenge.  It is nice to go back in time...as I had forgotten about this card.  You can see the original post back on 28th November, 2008


To be eligible for the prize package, hoppers will need to leave comments on all the blog posts listed for the blog hop AND link up their first blogged Black and White card for Flashback Friday 20.0.  People will get another chance if they 'follow' the Flashback Friday blog or become a new follower.  The hop will be open for the duration of the Flashback Friday 20.0 challenge which closes Friday, 24th February at 11:59 pm Pacific Time.


Thanks for visiting (remember to leave a comment here before leaving), I hope you are having fun checking out all the Guest Designer creations. Now you need to visit Hazel at Dido's Designs who was Guest Designer for Flashback Friday 19.0.


Oh, here is a couple of photos of the prize on offer.  The first photo is the entire prize together and the smaller photos show parts of the prize up close.
