Welcome, friends!

Today is day #1 of this month’s There She Goes sneak peeks!   I’m going to let the cat out of the bag right now.   There are FIVE new sets this month!

If you’ve arrived here from Heather’s blog, then you are in the right spot.  If not, you should start back on the There She Goes company blog to get the instructions on how you can win a set of these new stamps!   You won’t want to miss this!

The first set we’re featuring is called The Journey.  This set is packed with serene images and wonderful sentiments.   It’s a must have!



When I first saw the lotus blossom, I immediately thought of a traditional Japanese house with wood floors and tatami mats.  I used creamy caramel cardstock and aged it to look like teak wood.


Here are my deets:

Stamps:  There She Goes’ The Journey

Colors: GP White, Pacific Point, Creamy Caramel, Pacific Point dp

Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, copics, Tim Holtz tea bag distressing ink

Accessories: Pacific Point grosgrain ribbon, chestnut brads, word window punch, nesties frame, swiss dots embossing folder, sponge, black marker, ruler, dimensionals


My card also incorporates Mojo Monday sketch #149 seen HERE.

Now it’s time to send you off to Jessica’s blog.   I’m sure her peek will leave you squealing!  Thanks for stopping by!  I will be sitting out tomorrow’s hop, but be sure to check the There She Goes blog for more peeks!   I’ll be back on Thursday with more fun stuff!!
