flashback 6.0 & birthday wishes

hello again! do you all know who Amy Tsuruta is? yeah, you know, the awesome Washingtonian who always has a kind word for everybody?


she's been hosting a challenge over at her blog, and it's called "flashback friday." this week's version challenges you (thanks Yvonne!) to share:

**The first card you blogged about that featured an unexpected find from your home**

so here we go. i know this may look kinda normal to you, but that stamp on the lower right, in the circle... that's my unusual object, because when i was at my parent's house, i found this stamp that my dad had tucked away in some drawer or shelf... who knows what he would have used it for since he was a technical writer for Boeing before he retired a few years back.

anyway, that's the first card i could find with an unusual object to me... i know it might not count to some of you, so i dug up another post...

this one featured one of my first scrapbook pages (which i didn't know how to photograph)

do you see the ticket saying "keep this coupon" and the embellishment on that big pink strip at the top? that's a Baskin Robbins (31 flavors of ice cream) cut-out... i found it around the house and used it in this layout because i think i won some ice cream or something... haha, don't even remember!

and of course, i thought i'd share a new card with you too, so here we go:

this one actually went to my Principal for her birthday... it was a while ago, but i never blogged about it. i think i made this card while stamping with my friend Paulina who has some serious blog candy going on right now... you can win $40! you should head over and check it out!

Pretty Pink Posh Giveaway

anyway, i hope your friday is fabulous, and thanks for stopping by! :D
