A few dinosaurs I dug up... yikes... and a challenge!

Today, [and I can't believe I'm doing this] I'm going to share with you some of my very first TAC cards that I ever made. I'm sure there have been more that are scarier, but I couldn't find any [ duh, like I would want to document anything REALLY bad :) ] As you will see, I had an affinity for window cards (the last four). I really think it is important to look back and see how you've improved yourself (in many more aspects than just papercrafts, too), and your work over time.



The Angel Friend card was very early on, the Toadally Pink one was from one of the first hostess club classes I had, the Friends Pocket was the first tag/pocket style card I had done & a first seminar swap card, Haute Couture lady is paper pieced, the Groovy Flower burgandy/pink one is my first rock-n-roll with clear heat embossing, the green Wonderful Day was also VERY early on, and the Wittle Bug was one of my first seminar swap cards.

Ahhh, the memories... I think I've come a long way, baby... now it's your turn.
I challenge you
to dig up some of your very first cards (not an exact copy/cased card from someone else) and share them! Link back here in the comment section of this post, so we can all get a good look!!

What do you think?

Hmm...I don't see anything horrific. It all looks pretty good to me!
Creativity evolves just like life & experience. I think we are all glad that means things always get better over time...like a fine wine!!

These are great! By the time I joined TAC I'd been stamping about 8 years and those first cards were really horrific! I don't have any of them anymore (thank goodness)! But I love how we keep growing in our creativity through experimenting and learning!

How fun! Thanks for sharing your cards. Oh man...I don't know if I have the courage to share my old cards. I'll have to dig some out. :)

Pretty nice for a first timer, hee hee, my first cards were horrible, glue everywhere, you could see my cut lines, uneven placements, just all trial and era...I would never show them, even if I still had them...

Too funny! I just found some old cards I did and will have to share! It's funny to see how we (as well as the times) change!

Oh goodness, I don't think I have any of my oldies. I wish I did because they would be hilarious to look at because I was not a great stamper back then:)
