Standing Under My Umbrella aka The Power of Practice Blog Hop

 Howdy y'all!

Today's card is for The Power of Practice Blog Hop! We are to share with you a bit about our crafting journey. By showing an older photo of one of our first handmade cards. And a recent photo of a handmade card (sort of like a ‘Before and After’ of your progress as a crafter). This is a fun way to encourage others to keep practicing their craft.

If this is your first stop on the hop. Your next stop is 
Ishani Sai. But if not then you were last at Vicki Parson.
