Happy to blog this evening

Hello sweet bloggers,

I am rather slow with blogging this year... life seems soooo hectic.

Here is a card that I made for Aleeza's lovely teacher who is a male. The coffee bean on the right moved a little but I realized that only after I took the picture. 

We celebrated Aleeza's birthday party last Sunday and both the kids and adults had lots of fun.

Aleeza with her sweet smile at the party.

Look at the joy on her face after opening all her presents.

I will enter this card in: - code word coffee

Wish you a happy weekend,

Happy birthday to Aleeza. She did seem so happy at her party. Great card for her teacher. I know what you mean about life just being busy....but I do try as well and pop in from time to time. Take care, hugs, Ursula

Looks like a sweet smiling mama at the party too! Wonderful pictures and very pretty girls! They're growing up so fast it seems.
Great card for a guy and know he loved it. Love the coffee beans on it too! Cute idea.

your daughters are so pretty, Monica, and I LOVE that creamy-smooth, beautifully-toned skin the 3 of you have - I am ENVIOUS! Love this nautical style card - really great with the textures and sandy color! hugs, de

A very beautiful smile, indeed! I think the coffee beans are so clever! I have not been blogging.... hubby started working from home, and it just doesn't work out as often. Darn. But, I just went to start some updating, and found out that several things are not working on my blog anymore. Gotta figure it out, one bit at a time. :) Happy Birthday to Aleeza! (On my 6th b-day, my gift from my mother was getting my ears pierced. :)

Hi Monica! I haven't been on blogs in over a year but thought I would stop by and say hello and see what you've been up to!
Eventually I will return to blogging. I'm still crafting occasionally an have been taking the quick route and posting on Pinterest. 😉
I saw the beautiful heart card you made from your daughters treasured paper.
You have a beautiful family! Hugs to you!
