Throwback Thursday Challenge #2

When I saw that Bibiana has started a new Throwback Thursday Challenge on her blog, Stamping with Bibiana, I thought it would be fun to take part.  The idea is to repost a card posted some time in the past.  Each challenge lasts for two week, starting on a Thursday, and this time the theme is: A past Halloween project (preferably but NOT compulsory).  As Halloween cards are not common in the UK, I've never made one, so I thought about the first card I ever made for a challenge.  HERE is my original post.
In March 2013 I saw a new challenge being started by Lavinia Stamps. As I already owned a number of Lavinia stamps I decided to enter.  It was only when I saw other entries, that I realised there were other challenges.  Until then I had no idea that there were online card making challenges! As I started to enter a few of these challenges, I discovered there are hundreds of challenges, with lots of lovely bloggers who visit and comment on each others posts.  Since March 2013, when the Lavinia Stamps challenge started, I always make sure I enter every month, as it was the challenge that first introduced me to my blogging friends.

Pop over to Stamping with Bibiana and repost one of your creations from the past.


  1. Love the fab image,this is

  2. I love the Lavinia stamps but haven't the knowledge to do these stunning backgrounds I see on other blogs. So,I have enrolled on a Lavinia stamp class in November to learn how to create them without using a brayer!! Hugs Mrs A.

    1. I don't use a brayer any more. I find using Ink Dusters so much easier to make backgrounds and they use far less ink too. Good luck on your Lavinia Stamps class - it sounds like fun! x

  3. Hi Liz,
    what a fab creation for Bibiana's 2nd challenge.
    Love your super inking of this fab background.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
