ABC Challenge - Y is for .....

Hi there, my day off already woohoo but it is already shaping up to be a busy day. We have a couple of builders in removing a chimney breast in one of our bedrooms and there is dust everywhere but it will all be worth it. Plus, getting my hair done this morning so I will be all glam and lovely and covered in brick dust ..... nice!
Enough of my nonsense, I know you all want to find out what 'Y' is for on this weeks challenge on ABC . I bet you all thought it would be yellow didn't you ... if so you are WRONG!!! This week Y is for...

YESTERYEAR!




Basically, we want to see one of your first ever stamps on your creation. Now I know you think I am mad because the image on my card is a very new stamp but look closer ....... can you see my old stamp???? Even closer .....





There you go - can you believe I have never used these pretty little heart background stamps before. They were in a See D's set that I bought when I first started crafting. I have heat embossed them with holographic EP and I really love the effect (although I may have slightly singed the paper, lol ... think that's what us crafters call distressing hahahaha).
I was also a very distressed crafter when I spilled over half a tub of glamour dust all over my dining room floor .... oops. Managed to salvage some, remove some and then blinged up everything else in the room - Boxer dogs look so much prettier when the sparkle you know ... nightmare!
A big thankyou to everyone who joined in last week. We have a guest designer this week so pop over and find out who it is! Have a fab week and can't wait to see your creations!
Image coloured with prismas, glamour dust added for bling, papers from BG Bittersweet pack (love love love this pack), flowers from poppicrafts, brads from stash, Anita's ribbon from The Range, See D's heart stamp
