Today's the day ....

....  By the time this is posted, Kathryn and I will be on our way to America.  The last couple of weeks have been something of a whirlwind, but oh, so exciting!!

Picture Link
If you find Livonia and Ann Arbor on the map - we'll be living roughly inbetween them, in a lovely place called Northville.

This is the last of the thank you cards that I made before we left.  After all our belongings left the house last week, we went to stay at some friends of ours.  Linda and John were really kind and let us stay with them, rather than spend a week in a hotel.  I cut out some of this pretty backing paper and covered the base of the card.  In my "emergency" stash I found this Spellbinder die cut - which was blank!  I stamped a doily and sentiment on it, attached some ribbon to the back to make a rosette and added a rose to the front.


Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Doilies, Say it with Style
Inks:  Stampin' Up! - So Saffron, Regal Rose
Spellbinders:  Star Circle
Accessories:  Kate Knight Papers - Totally Tropical (free with Cardmaking & Papercraft)

That's all for today.  Take care and see you soon.

To say that you've been creative with your emergency stash is an understatement.....I've just been watching in utter wonder as your posts have appeared with your creations showing its use. Hope you have a very safe journey & that it's an uneventful one.

Deborah - Welcome to the US - we're practically neighbors - I'm near Chicago! You're going to have to learn how to fish now (if you don't already) your smack dab in the center of the great lakes!
