Snippets Card ... and Holiday Pics


Hi everyone.  Here a card I made a few weeks ago, but haven't had time to blog.  I made the monoprint background a while back and used part of it for another card, this was the cut-off and it made a perfectly little background for my flowers.  I cut the bottom edge to follow along with the line of the blooms and leaves which were stamped, coloured with my Zigs and fussy-cut from a snippet of mixed media paper.

I'm heading over to Snippets Playground for some fun.  Used two for this card ... snippet for the background, and snippets for the flowers. :)

I am currently away for the long weekend.  This is the only vacation this year as life has been busy with renos, getting air conditioning installed in the house, plus recovery from my injury.  Originally the plan was for the whole family to get away for a few days, but one part had to work during the long weekend, so hubby and I are here in Gibsons with the other half. :)  We have rented a house on the water with a beautiful view ... our favourite holiday places look out at water. :)  I'll include a few pictures ... one of the view from the deck, another of Alex taking pictures (he is starting a side business photographs and editing), a picture of Jer reading (he just got a one year contract on Friday morning before we left ... so Tuesday he starts and needs to come up with lesson plans for his English 8 and 10 classes).  Then there's hubby, assuming his favourite position --- reclining on the deck with a Cuba Libre. :)  And last, but not lease, a picture of our dinner last night.  Alex is an amazing cook and made Chicken Provencal with wild rice.  So delicious!!







It's morning here and Alex is making Chilaquiles (eggs with salsa, chorizo and feta) ... yummy!!!  Off to enjoy. :)

Update:  Here's a pic of this morning's breakfast.  Oh my gosh ... DELICIOUS! :)



Thanks for coming by for a visit.

I have just looked over what I have missed, such beauty, you have been busy., I hope you have enjoyed your time away and got chance to relax a bit?
    Love & hUgs

  16. My dear Loll (waving wildly): with travel and work in quadruple doses over the summer (Delta-Seattle-Kelowna-home-Ottawa-driving back from Ottawa-Calgary-Edmonton, etc. etc.), I've fallen FAR TOO MANY posts behind! All your dazzling delights have been gazed at, admired, oohed and ahhed over, so hopefully my awe at your creativity has found its way to you. I'm going to start afresh and strive to stay caught up! Fingers crossed! My visits may be 'pop in's but letting you know your cards have caught my eye and heart is important! Your card here: stunning! Love it oodles! And the photos...oh my! A well-deserved break for you!
    Hugs~c
