*Flashback Friday*

I am home!!! We had a wonderful vacation out to Canada's west coast and back, but as always I am glad to be home again. We arrived home around suppertime and I employed the entire family to help me get unpacked, get the laundry sorted and everything put away. I haven't been home much this month and am looking forward to some days spent hanging around the house.

Thank you to everyone for their patience while I was away. I hope I haven't lost too many readers in the last two weeks!!!

Today's Flashback Friday card comes from my 2003 folder. So hard to tell the colours when looking at these old scans but I am pretty sure that the card base is a navy blue linen cardstock. The stamps are both by Hero Arts. I substituted some red flower brads for the flowers in the image and then filled the middles of them with small gold Beadz.

At the time, I was totally addicted to the idea of creating a frame around an image by using the notch corner punch and wrapping embroidery filament around the piece to create the frame. I did it a lot.

I will be drawing for my birthday blog candy tomorrow.... come back to see if you're a winner! If you haven't already entered, be sure to leave a comment in the post below!

Sorry you had such rain - we have had a strange summer on the west coast. Your card is so cute - I love your style.

Ok, so what did you spend your birthday money on at Stampers in Victoria? There's just nothing like "Retail Therapy" is there (especially when its in a stamping store)?

I have taken my children when younger to Stanley Park many times and have been to Victoria many years ago. It's to bad the weather didn't co-operate better.
I'm still using the frame on alot of my cards. I haven't been on the card making expressway for many years and are just learning.

That is a nice card Nancy.. it might have been made in 2003, but it still looks wonderful. And I am so glad you had a great vacation.
