What a week!

Good morning!

Sorry for my long time absence... It's been quite an adventure for me the past few weeks! Unfortunately when I mentioned last week that I was feeling better - it was all just a myth.... lol! I'm not sure exactly what I had, but I was out for the count for nearly a week and finally ended up going into the doctor the evening before our family Disney World trip because I KNEW there was no way that I would be able to make it without some medicine! Thankfully it did the trick and by the time our flight to Florida took off on Friday morning, I was doing a bit better and continued to feel better and better each day of our vacation.

We spent Friday through Wednesday exploring Disney World, celebrating a belated birthday with my daughter Ashley and enjoying the Christmas decorations along with the regular Disney excitement. The weather was a bit cold to be outside all the time, but we braved the cold temps (40s and lower 50s most of the days) and rather than coming home with a suntan, came home with chapped cheeks and lips! lol! While there we were well aware that our friends up north were dealing with snow and frigid temps, so we tried to keep good attitudes and smiles on our faces with what we were missing, even though we were C O L D !! We even came home to a driveway of several inches of snow that we had to shovel before we could even get the van in the driveway!

 But, we're back now and getting back into the routine of school, work, and Christmas preparations! I have a quick card that I made before we left on our trip that I meant to share while we were away, but never got online to share it...

Card Details
Stamps: Hero Arts
Ink: SU; Memento
Cardstock: Stampin Up
Other: button; twine; lace; copics; pearls; stickles; spica glitter pens

I really like how the house looks stamped on this sahara sand paper and colored with Copics.  I rarely use colored papers for coloring and need to try to remember to do that more often.

No photo of the inside of the card this time - sorry about that!

Finally, I'll leave you with a couple more photos of us at Disney.  I have TONS more to sort through and edit, so look for more of those soon from me...

Have a fabulous rest of your day - I hope the holiday preparations are going well for you!

Great card Jessica and I am so glad your family had a good time at Disney. I was there after the day you left and came home yesterday--I was at a convention in Orlando, so I was inside most of the time, but our temps were a bit warmer than yours.
