It's been a long, long time

Hello sweet bloggers,

Indeed a long time since I posted last. It was summer holidays and I thought of giving my children all the time I could. I know my older one, Zeenya is independent and a twelfth grader if you please. Aleeza is a fourth grader and time flies. We went to India for a few days and then to New York and Boston. It sure was hectic and NY seemed to be more bustling since the last time I visited it in 2007. Boston was far saner and more charming if I may say so. We did the Statue of Liberty and saw a Broadway musical called Aladin which was breathtakingly beautiful. Apart from that we saw Central Park and also the Common in Boston was very pretty.

I made as many as 22 cards in two weeks that we were in the US. Aleeza was a constant source of inspiration to me. I managed to visit Paper Source both in NY and Boston and picked up some pretty stamps and a circles punch from there. 

Down below is one of the cards we made together. I carried my distress inks and coloured the background with them. Thank you is a die cut from a perfume packaging which is shiny, shiny magenta. 



Will catch you later... 

Happy crafting always,

Monica

You certainly keep very busy. It is wise to spend lot of time with your children because they grow upso very quickly. This colour scheme is beautiful and sets of the pretty sentiment beautifully

What an amazing holiday, so much that you would have seen. Wow, Zeenya is grade 12 what plans does she have when finishing school? I hope they are close to home for you. Another wonderful card.
