Our journey begins at home



Hi folks,


Just popping in to share a card I made for friends of ours who recently moved into a new home. It's actually been a while since they moved into their new house but we only managed to visit them this past weekend. Not only did we get to see their new house, we ALSO got to meet their 4 month old baby boy for the first time!







This is one of my new stamps from Unity Stamp Co - it was one of stamps in a Grab Bag Special Collection I picked up a little while ago. I have totally become enamoured of the stamps that Unity makes. My collection is growing VERY quickly. I expect it will grow AGAIN this weekend as it is there annual Brown Friday Sale! AWESOME deals to be had!


I'm also going to be sure to link this one up for the Friday Friends with Flair over at their blog.

CTMH Snowhaven Christmas Cards

Hi folks,

Just thought I would pop in and share some cards I have made using the Snowhaven Card-Making Workshop on the Go.

A few friends have expressed an interest in attending a Christmas Card workshop hosted by me so I'm trying to come up with some ideas, using the WOTG as a base.

Of course, the three card patterns that are the basis of the WOTG are a starting point but I wanted to show how you could make different cards just by changing the orientation of the card, the stamp, the side of the paper you are using or the layout. Here are the six cards I've done so far.

The first three are the original cards from the WOTG:





And these three are alternate versions:





I'm quite happy with how they turned out.
