It's A Doggy Christmas Card plus Last and First!

This card was sent off to some doggy people. (People who have dogs) We took them out in the car on Wednesday. The dogs that is, not their owners! They'd gone off for the day to London. (Haven't been there for years)
So what have I used? I made it sooo long ago I've forgotten! (and it's been sitting in draft so when I post'll disappear into last month's posts and I won't be able to find it! (Note to self, change the date!)
The flowers I remember are sort of padded silk, which I've covered with gold Stickles glitter. The green fern leaves were punched out of paper felt, I'm not sure what else to call it, I had it left over from when I did Play School, about a hundred years ago! (feels like it anyway!) I think it's still made, but with a sticky back. Galt, rings a bell to where I used to get it from.. Play School suppliers. I'll fill in more details later... I have the stamps but they are 'waiting to be 'cleaned' (cleaned???) and aren't in their packets.
Now, to enter one of the challenges I've found you have to show your last and first cards. Well, my first card of 2010 was this Tilda card, which I posted on the 1st of January. I'd won the Tilda in Creative inspirations challenge#22. and she arrived on Christmas eve 2009, so I didn't have much time to use her!

I didn't quite make 365 posts this year, still, never mind, there's always NEXT YEAR!!
Just off somewhere now! Happy New Year!!!

**Update*** Sorry, I read the rules on the First and Last challenge wrong. Now, I have no picture of the very first card I ever made, so I've now chosen the first card I ever put on this blog. I originally made it for a forum Challenge, but no one saw it as I couldn't load it to the forum! (aw shame) but later it did appear over in TrimCrafts (different forum) ....thinking of Trimcrafts...there might be card over there that's older...ohooo I'll go and look!! Back in a minute!!
Here but it was posted on this blog later... The First Card ever posted on my blog is this one and here's the link.

  2. Both beautiful cards Lyn and thankyou for entering the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers - I think you have misunderstood the challenge though - it is supposed to be your first ever card, not the first of 2010. Anyway great to see your cards and I hope you'll be back again soon.
