I have to laugh ...

every time I see this card ~

I don't know why, but I decided to look back at some of my old blog posts. Have you ever done that? Well, this card is the very first one I posted and I can't believe I did that! In case you don't know the story behind this card, here's a quick and dirty version: I wanted to make a really special card for my BFF, Kyoko. After days of searching magazines and websites for a layout, I had info overload and couldn't think. So I got this epoxy "FRIEND" sticker and stuck it on a plain card. Hahahahahah! I still remember the look on Kyoko's face when she opened the card and boy did we laugh! And like I said, I still laugh every time I see or think about this card.

I've come a long way in my card making and crafting and that's thanks to my BFF and many other sweet ladies who have taken the time to comment on my blog and keep me inspired by their creations.

If you have a moment or two, go back to your first blog posts and check out YOUR creations and see how far you all have come. Maybe you'll laugh, or even scream, at your first creations you shared with all of us. Either way, I hope it'll bring you a little happiness. Take care everyone and much love to you all.
