Just checking in!!!


Wow.. it seems like.. well.. FOREVER since I've been on here!! Well in all honesty it has been a while.. but I promise I've had good reason!!.

I've just this week returned from an Overseas holiday with my BEAUTIFUL and GORGEOUS little family. My fabulous hubby and I decided to take our gorgeous girls to Disney Land in Hong Kong!!!! And... it was AMAZING!!!

It's seriously been one of the things on my TO DO LIST!!! I know it sounds crazy and probably a little .. um... WHAT!!!??? Right?... but with the world the way it is today and the way our lives become consumed with being BUSY, working, and the .. "oh it can wait" attitude... my little flossies are growing WAY to fast.. and taking them to Disney Land while they are still such CUTE, YOUNG, tiny little flossies was just something I HAD to do... and am SO thankful that I could do.

The looks on their faces, the excitement in their voices.. not just once, but for the ENTIRE stay was truly PRICELESS and worth every cent. It's a reaction that I know will be never be the same again.. one that although will be filled with excitement "when" we get back there again, will be a different excitement, that type of excitement that changes each year as we get older.

I hope to get back to stamping this week... I'm just trying to recover from the FLIGHTS, the WASHING.. more WASHING.. oh did I say WASHING!!! and then I'll attempt to find that mojo of mine.. hhahaha.

So here are a few pics of our little holiday!!!

Here we all are meeting Donald and Daisy!!!
And here is Jorja meeting Minnie Mouse for the very first time... can you see the excitement!!!!... She'd waited for TWO days to finally get to meet her... hahaha
And let us not forget a double Mickey Cuddle too...

Thanks so much for stopping by.. and of course bearing with me during my little stamping LULL!!!

Christmas in {pink and chocolate}

Now... don't fall off your chair in shock!!!.. I know it's mid week and I... Yes I, the one and only SJ have a card to show you.... ooohh!!!.. haha

I was recently asked to make a Christmas card in Pink and Chocolate, two of my VERY favourite colours.. yes I know you're all shocked to hear that!! hahah

The problem with being asked to make a particular card is that I tend to OVER THINK the whole thing... you know, start something, put it down, start another, look at the first thing, put it back down, look at the second thing, put that back down, start another thing... blah, blah.. you get the idea, Right?! Does anyone else have this "over thinking" problem or am I all alone?

Anyhoo... I came up with this, although the photo isn't really doing this Shimmery little card the justice it deserves. I LOVE the new Shimmer Paints, NO REALLY!!! I LOVE the new Shimmer Paints. All that gorgeous shimmery goodness in one little pot.. BUT... it's SOOOO hard to photograph!!!

Right... I'll stop blabbering and show you the card:-

The colour combo is Pink Pirouette, with Early Espresso, which has been put through my Big Shot with the GORGEOUS Vintage Wallpaper Impression Folder... LOVE!!! The baubles are from... can you guess???? YEP.. Contempo Christmas and are stamped in Espresso and then covered with SHIMMER PAINT!!! LOVE, LOVE!! Oh and the ribbon comes in the form of some satiny Pretty in Pink goodness... YUMMMMMM!!!!

So, what do you think??? YES or NO?

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Sweet Sunday Sketch!!!!!... it's COMING!!


I'm SO sorry... I had a little accident here today, which resulted in a rather lengthy wait at the Childrens hospital Emergency room.. with my little one deciding she'd like to see what would happen if she came into close contact with the edge of a coffee table... lets just say the coffee table faired better!!!!

She's OK.. actually to anyone else you'd never even know what had happened.. she's running around, screaming and generally having a fabulous Flossie time.. ahhaha.

It did mean though that I haven't had a chance to sit down and create my Sweet Sunday Sketch card.. BUT.. I WILL have it up for you this afternoon... HOPEFULLY.. so please come back and visit :D

Again.. I'm SO sorry.
