Ok, so this week's challenge from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long is a good one, but it might be a bit of an embarrassing trip down memory lane.  Because, the challenge is to CASE (copy and share everything) the first Christmas card you ever posted to your blog!  The sponsor for this challenge is Bunny Zoe and the winner will receive a 10.00 pound gift certificate to the shop!
Now, luckily for me, I only started blogging at the end of 2010 and that was only a few cards; I started for real in October 2011.  As I scrolled back down through my posts to find the first Christmas card, I was afraid of how primitive it might have been.  But I was pleasantly surprised with the style--I don't think I have changed my style a whole lot.  Unfortunately, the first Christmas card wasn't too stunning, but it's not bad.

If you want to check out the original post, you can find it here.  I decided to keep the sketch and kept the background mostly white but tried to add a bit more glamour to it.  So, take a look in those dusty old archives, find your first posted Christmas card and show us what you can do now!  Go over to the CSAYL blog and check out the other DT's projects.  Then, link up your own for the chance to be the winner.
