CardsbyMarianne is a blog that is not only about cards but also scrapbooking, papercrafts, mini albums and trash to treasure projects. I love to work with dies, patterned paper, embossing folders and various punches. In short, I love crafting and I can't wait to share it all with you. Thanks for visiting and for leaving me a comment!

Challenge #43 at Lia Stampz. Theme is "Anything Goes"
We are getting ready to say goodbye to the house that we saw being built from the ground up. This is where our children grew up, so it is bittersweet that we are leaving it. We have a lot of fond memories inside this house but we've also some pretty rough times as well. We are almost empty nesters as our 2 sons have left and are living on their own. Our daughter will be with us for possibly another year as she tries to pay down her student loans. After 2 years of university and 2 years at college, she has graduated with a diploma as a Social Services Worker. Congrats Sarah!
As our lives change in a different direction, so do our needs. I plan to spend more time on my beloved hobby of cardmaking, with a touch of scrapbooking, papercrafting, altered objects just to name a few. For this reason we have looked for another house that has less bedrooms but more space for me to spread out and be able to pursue my passions. We also wanted to move to a different city, somewhere in the Niagara region and closer to the border so I can indulge myself in those over the border shopping trips. Joann's craft store and I are going to be on a first name basis!
Here is my Design Team Project for Lia Stampz. This is Challenge #43 and the theme is Anything Goes. I have chosen to use "Moo" for my digital stamp and appropriately made a card to let friends and family know of our new address. Lia Stampz can be found at
