TGIF Everyone! This week is Flashback Friday Blog Hop featuring the top 3 (challenge winner and 2 runners up) from last week's challenge as guest designers.

So, you get to hop to each of our blogs, including the blog of our wonderful sponsor for the week too.

This week's challenge, Flashback Friday 22.0 Challenge ~~ your first paper project using a die cut. The challenge runs from today, March 30th through April 20th.

The sponsor this week is Sylvia's Corner

Click on the photo below and check out Sylvia's gorgeous cards in her Etsy shop! She has some truly beautiful one of a kind cards!

Here is the prize she is offering to the winner:
The prize is composed of a Stampin'Up! Sale-A-Bration package I put together. There is a Everyday Enchantment Tote, a 12"x12" package of Everyday Enchantment Designer Paper(12pieces), 10 card bases, two of each of these colors, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo, and Wisteria Wonder, 20" of Baja Breeze satin pleated ribbon, 2yds each Everyday Enchantment Organdy Ribbon Lucky Limeade and Calypso Coral, 10 Everyday Enchantment brads and 10 shaped clear buttons, and the Sale-A-Bration Fresh Vintage stamp set(wood mount, unmounted). This collection is sponsored by Sylvia's corner Etsy shop, where I sell my handmade cards, banners, gift bags and albums. Such a beautiful prize!

Now, for my flashback card, which is actually my very first post when I debuted my blog back in September 2009. The die cut I used was the Sizzix 'sizzilit' embossed heart die cut, which I cut from silver paper. I can't believe I've been blogging almost 3 years now. I had been scrapbooking for about ten years prior to that but really just got started into stamping around the same time I began blogging. I didn't have a lot of die cuts or stamps back then.  I didn't cringe so much when I discovered this was my first use of die cuts on a card, especially when I saw a couple cards I had made after this one!  YIKES!  You will also note that my original blog name was SnapScrap&Dazzle, watermarked on the photo of my card. A lot has changed in my blogging and stamping for me, including my blog name, as you see. I also now have my own craft studio at home bursting full of stamping and crafting supplies! 

Enjoy your 'hopping' on the blog hop.  From here, your next stop will be with Amy.  And, in case you got here first, here is the list of designers in order, beginning with the 'home' spot, Flashback Friday:

Nance (Guest Designer): YOU ARE HERE.
So, after enjoying seeing all of our posts through blog hopping, peruse through your own blog archive, find that very first card using a die cut, and play along with us this week at Flashback Fridays. Can't wait to see what everyone finds!
