A number of years ago I adoped the word BELIEVE as my word. It was a time of new beginnings for me, and it struck me that all I had to do was believe. Believe I could make a new start, believe that I could be successful. Believe that I . . . whatever I needed at any moment, it was there to support me at any given time. I have a number of items around my home to remind me of this. Plaques, mugs, framed art I have made, an engraved polished stone, whatever I have found and collected over the years. The stamp set Itty Bitty Christmas has a stamp that simply says ‘believe’ and I used it on my card today.
I know it is early spring, so I can’t even say I’m doing Christmas in July, but I do have a Christmas card for you today. I was playing with my Stamparatus, and wanted to use a stamp in a non-traditional way, and following my nose (or my stamps, ink and paper), I ended up at Christmas!
I have been playing with the Floral Romance Suite from the Occasions catalogue, and it is wonderful. I couldn’t stop creating!! I have put together a tutorial of nine cards and I would love to share it with you for FREE.

When I create Christmas cards like I like to change it up sometimes, and use 'non-traditional' colours. The Global Design Project challenge today gave me the perfect opportunity to do that, and I'm also sharing a sneak peak at some of the amazing new products from the 2018 Holiday catalogue.
