Amy Tsuruta's Flashback Friday challenges are fun and easy, all you need to do is repost a certain type of card, etc. I was stumped though, with the 6.0 challenge from Yvonne Yam, to repost **The first card you blogged about that featured an unexpected find from your home**. I am a follower of Yvonne's blog because she is a master with scrapbook layouts, and also because she can take a mix of the most unusual materials and create masterpieces. Her first card with an unexpected find included a tiara :>) After looking back thru my own posts, however, I learned that I do not leave my craft room when it comes to card making!!! If I did not buy it in a craft store then most likely you will not find it on my cards.
That being said, I did find a card using toothpicks that I did for a EBTKS challenge back in December 2009. I suppose the only reason I went into the kitchen for this card was because toothpicks were part of the challenge. If I remember correctly, I may have even bought toothpicks specifically for the challenge! So here it is, I know the suspense is unbearable, my thrilling flashback card containing toothpicks...
I really need to think outside the craft room! I did upcycle tonight though, by taking a faux fur vest with a broken zipper and turning it into a mini comforter for my daughter's dolls. I am trying!!!
Why don't you reshare your own first card with a "find"?!!! Link up your creation to Amy's Flashback Friday 6.0 by 11:59 pm PST Friday, January 7th, 2011.
