One of my personal themes for the year is to “use it or lose it”. Instead of saving supplies for a rainy day, I’m trying to use as many items in my stash as I can, and pass along things I don’t need.

Today’s project was created for a very special lady – blog follower Christina. I’d been planning on designing a house-shaped ATC for Christina for quite some time, so I was very excited when December rolled around and I finally had a chance to sit down and work on Christina’s ATC!

In the midst of the holiday hoopla, it seems like forever since I’ve posted a Name ATC, so today I thought I’d share Georgia’s card with you!
