My Sheri Challenge Week # 2 - Special Fold Cards

This was such a fun card to make. It is called a criss cross and I got the instruction from Splitcoast here to get instructions. It was easy to make and I love the way it turned out...the paper is Basic Grey, Gypsy line, and the cs is Bazzill. The big flower on the front, I cut from one of the papers and popped it up. The band around the card was punched with the Dotted Wave Punch. Sentiments are clear stamps. Flower and swirl are from HD, bfly and card pull are from SB, and greenery are ms branch punch. For complete instructions and supply list click here. There is a misterlinky on myshericrafts challenge if you are inspired to make your own special fold card

From Holland to Canada

These pictures are I think my favorite of all the old pics given to me. They are of my family when they arrived in Windsor, Ontario, from Holland. The journalling tells the story of the trip across the ocean by boat, and then by train from Halifax to remembered by my mom, who is now 88. I can't even imagine leaving your homeland with 5 boys, leaving your family and friends, for a country where you don't speak the language or even have a job...what an accomplishment...I don't think I have even a portion of what it takes to do such a I have deep admiration for my parents who did. Suitcases are from PDDU, title was made with SB and OA.


I am almost as addicted to making sketches, as I am to making the This was designed by me in Adobe Photoshop with downloaded papers and images. I posted it in RAQ's card Challenge on the cricut mb...if you are struggling with ideas for cards...check out the link. The ladies there are awesome and so inspiring...they totally have brought me to where I am today with my card making. The sunflower is from SYI, the leaves from SB
