Hello dear bloggers,

I have been wishing to blog but life got in the way again. And my mum is visiting so that kind of fills up our life in a nice way. We also managed to go to Bali over the spring break and it was lovely.

I made this card in a real jiffy with pretty store bought stickers. I know I could have made the roses at home yet I find it a thrill to stick something right away on a card and be instantly gratified. 

I was so impressed with this bougainvillea plant in the hotel where we stayed.

This is the view of the paddy fields from our room.

Sunset from our room...

Aleeza being treated to a fish spa for her feet.

Down below are pictures of the Bali safari.

See you soon,

How nice that your Mum is there with you. Looks like a wonderful stay in Bali. Brave Aleena, I not sure I would like all those little fish near my feet. :-) What a terrific idea with the bouganvilla to have all those coloured flowers on the one plant. A lovely CAS card.

Where to start? LOL first I have missed you ------------------------------- this much! (That's my arms spread wide) giggle. Your card with the stickers is darling! Love that beautifully textured cardstock. Thanks for sharing your trip to Bali! Gorgeous! The rice paddies look so very green. Isn't it amazing to see flowering or fruit bearing trees that have been grafted? I've not seen a grafted bougainvillea before. I hope that your Mom enjoyed herself as much as you enjoyed having her there! Take care, Miss Monica! XO
