Hello bloggers,

What a busy day I had today!!! I had to go to Aleeza's class to bake shortbread cookies with the kids. They turned out rather good except that plenty of them got burned as I was not familiar with the oven. As a result the kids were left wanting for more. Aleeza's teacher is so kind and he explained to them that it was okay if they did not get enough of something. And they seemed to understand. For my part, I think I will bake the same cookies and send them to class to make up for the faux pas. I hope I do it sooner rather than later.
Then I had to take Aleeza for a birthday party in the evening which was a swim party but it began to pour along with thunder and lightening so the kids had to come out of the pool. Yet they seemed so happy to be together and had a great time. So did I though I could not wait to get home after a long and hectic day.

Here is my card to show you today. That crumpled gold paper is handmade from India and looks really beautiful in real life. I have stuck textured dull gold paper under the reverse snowflakes. The centre snowflake is my latest buy from the button store close by. I have decorated the snowflakes with gold glitter and added a thin gold border at the bottom which has been sent to me by Merry - many thanks. For the life of me, I don't know why I punched the bottom of the card stock. 

I will enter this card in:

Wish you a happy Wednesday,

Hello dearest Monica...oh what wonderful cards you have created, as usual. I think Aleeza has a grand teacher, explaining to the children about it being okay not having "enough" and so sweet of you to think about them and make more cookies. I think your presence alone is a joy to them, Monica. You are the perfect little mommy and bring a smile to all of us with your lovely posts! I love the card with the tree and bees - what a fabulous idea! I have that embossing folder and you've inspired me to do more with it! Thank you ever so much my dear. I haven't forgotten about you as I'm collecting this and that to send for the new year to you. I love seeing your cards - you create and its purpose helps others - a wonderful talent to share! I would rather you have these items than anyone else. Okay, I've written a short novel - forgive me...but will talk to you in e-mail soon. Hugs! ;-)
