Going Home

Good morning and good day to all my loyal followers and blogger friends... This will be my last post until the second week of August.... I am leaving to go back to my hometown for a long visit and I couldn't be more excited. I will be taking my computer and intead of creating cards I plan to follow as much as I can and even do a little blog hopping!

There is nothing better than holidays to be filled with the warmth that only a family can bring..
 I wish you all the best and a very happy summer, to all of you who are travelling I wish you a safe trip and a wonderful time spent with your loved ones.

I would like to leave with you a layout of my oldest son, cards and flowers that I made some time back but never showcased on my blog. See ya when I get back!


Ryan is my oldest boy (17), he is a very quiet and talented man and has a wonderful sense of humor, I also included his first hair cut that I will treasure forever.

Thank You Card

Hello again my awesome blogger friends, I haven't blogged in over a week due to the summer kick off. There has been so much to do and meanwhile I just couldn't wait to get back to my craft table, my sanctuary.

Today I did a Thank You card, just two weeks ago my oven broke and since we've been using a toaster oven. My best friend , Troy who is also like a dad to Michael (now 8 since July 1st!!!!), his parents were lovely enough to go out and buy us a brand new stove!!! I was floored to say the least and very grateful that I didn't have to save for anything else seeing I am renovating my house, a very slow process and planning on flying home this summer.

So I thought I would send them a thank you card, it is the least that I could do.. I used paper from Bo Bunny and Nikki Sivels, the ribbon is also from Nikki Sivels. I also used Tim Holtz Ranger ink for the  thanks so much stamp and the dots that are going off the page.

In order to open this card , you have to turn the tab with the flower on it.




The private note can be taken out incase they would like to showcase the card.


Finally have time to blog Hop!!! Off I go!
