Fancy A Laugh

Hiya Everyone, Back again, I saw this over on the lovely Coops Blog and it did make me smile, so I thought I would join in too. Sandra has set us all a Challenge to see how much we have changed with our cards from the begining, HAHAHAHAHA, WOW, I always cringe when I see my earlier cards, not good at all, although at the time I probably thought they were the Bees Knees. 
Thanks so much for this Sandra, its tickled my belly :)
You can find all the INFO HERE at Sandras Blog
I had to go to my old Docrafts Gallery to get these, dont even remember my log in details for there, eeek, but I do have many lovely friends I cherish from there, so if your reading this, A GREAT BIG HELLO to you, I might not be over there but I havent forgotton you!

Hi Joey, your first cards aren't awful. I think they show your developing creativity and my goodness how it's developed!!

I don't think there's much difference between my first cards and the ones I do now, lol!

Squirrel x said...

Oh my gosh hun, what a change! You can see how much more confident you are now, with layout and colour. Nothing wrong with the earlier ones, but your new stuff is so much "stronger" if you get what I mean. You are braver than me babes! Hugs Sxx

chrissy xx said...

Awhh! Lol They are all lovely... And they were just right at the time...
Must admit Joey had to laugh at your background in April...What on earth is's all pipes.
Are you wondering??
The answer is...
No...I'm not sharing... he! he!

karen said...

MagsB said...

The most important thing about our first efforts is that we loved doing them, I think, and your earliest ones look like you had fun!

Anita said...

Thanks for sharing Joey - you're much braver than I am ;) I have to say I do see how much lovelier your more recent cards are. Hmm, maybe I'll get brave and play along too. I look at my beginning cards and laugh at myself!

Hello Joey dear, NONE of your cards are aweful!!! It's just that the times change and yep we grow and learn tips and trick. Your art is and has always been beautiful!!

Sorry Joey I love them all. Lol!!! Even the ones when we started out on Do Crafts together.


Sarah said...

Hi Joey, just hopping along with Sandra's then and now challenge.

You can certainly see your style has greatly improved from your early cards - but I don't think any of them are to be ashamed of!! We all start somewhere and then grow, and boy have you grown!!!


PS - Isn't it strange how many of us started out on DoCrafts! I lurked there for years without posting!! Posted a bit last year and now moved onto blogland

Rebekah said...

Cool idea Joey to do a little retro-reflect. Lovely to see the progression. Gotta say you're so 'in the groove' with your beautifully finished cards now. The matching boxes and card insides. Love all the 'new ones' to bits. Specially love the Sylvia Zet card. Such a sweet image, beautifully coloured. Wends x
