Sketch and a Fun Look Back!

Good Morning Everyone, 
This week on MAWTT its Reds turn to Hostess.
She would like you to case this card. This was one of Reds very first cards and she thinks its ugly, I really like it!! 
Here is my card in full. I have to say I had a total nightmare getting a photo of it right with the sparkly cardstock!!! Took about 60 pictures and still not happy. Im quite impressed that I have again used old stuff!! This was part of a Kanban set I bought a few years ago!! 
Card Recipe
Kanban Cardstock and Sentiment
6 x 6 Kraft Card. 
Now as well as that we would like you to share with us your first blogged card. This was Reds first one hence sharing. (We didnt want her to feel alone in her sharing)  Here is Mine from 14 August 2008!!! Golly Ive been blogging for a wee while then!!! 
Its Toms 4th Birthday card!!! Eack he will be 10 this year!!!!  I used Paper Nation stuff for it. Very basic but cute!!!  
It was fun but also sad looking back my blog at the start. I started to blog the month before my Granda passed away so there was a lot of memories of that sad time. I love blogging and have made the most wonderful friends from it!!!
Looking back my cards have changed dramatically and so has my colouring!!!
Love and Sparkles Hazelxox

Challenges I would like to enter with my card (the new one) are....
Fab and Funky  - Christmas
Clear it Out Challenge - Use Green.
Fantastic Tuesday - Anything Goes.
