Flashback Friday

Hi girls. I'm really pleased you could call in to my blog and I hope you like what you find here.
I have been feeling a bit better and managed to do a fair bit of commenting yesterday. At least I commented where Blogger would allow me to. I had a lot of bother signing in and kept going round in circles when I was trying to leave comments. I had a look online to find out what the problem might be and it appears that many people are having similar problems. Hey Ho I'll just have to keep trying. Any suggestions would be welcomed.
My friend Kathleen over at The Daisy Chain has set the challenge over at Flashback Friday and wants us to post the first card we ever posted with Summer Colours. Well this is mine. It was the card I ever posted away back on 2nd August 2009. Various papers, crocheted edge laced with ribbon, cricut butterfly kites in pink and white and of course magnolia stamp mounted on scalloped and plain oval Nesties. Coloured using Copic Ciao pens.
It's strange looking back nearly 2 years to see what I was creating then. I hope you like it and I would love to hear what you think of it. If you have a moment (and Blogger will let you) it would be much appreciated if you left a comment.
Have a great day and stay safe and healthy.
