Am back in action...

Hello sweet bloggers,

Wish you all a happy new year! We just got back a couple of days ago from our vacation which was lovely. It was nice to touch base with family and friends over good food and conversation. My mum was over joyed by the fact that Aleeza connected so well with her. Now that is a new happening, you know and I am happy about it, too.

Down below is a card I made this afternoon on Aleeza's behest as she wanted me to have a purse on the card. So I got out the swell papers and card board images that my dear blog friend Sandra mailed to me some time ago. The bow at the bottom and sentiment are also from her. Simple but sweet is this card, don't you think?

Down below is a Christmas decoration outside a hotel where we went for lunch.

Here are my precious gems...

I promise to start visiting you all soon... thanks for all the emails, will get back once I have the laundry sorted :-)

Hello dear Monica. Oh how lovely to see you back.
Your card is delightful, and I just love the textured card and pretty papers.
The pictures are gorgeous, and just look how your two beautiful daughters have grown up, wow. Gorgeous smiles.
Lots of love, Sandra xx
PS. Will email when feel able.
