Back Home

Hello again, friends! We got home safely on Monday from our USA road trip after a wonderful time. On arriving home, I found this special card for me from my sweet blogging friend Connie of Crafty Creations HERE.

These pics don't do justice to Connie's fine stitching and it fits perfectly into my prim decor with its tan and reds.

Very cleverly Connie has designed the card to stand up so I can enjoy the stars too! How cute!

As if that wasn't enough, dear Connie also included a little envelope filled with stamps and sentiments to use when i try to make some cards.


Here are a few snapshots of our time in Michigan on the shores of Lake Huron.  It was beautiful!

The long roads of Michigan!

Thanks for all your well wishes and prayer whilst we were away.  I'll be posting again soon with more holiday shots and some of my holiday purchases.

See you soon!
