A rather long Absence!!

Well hello again fellow bloggers,

It has been brought to my attention "thanks my dear friend" that I haven't been on here for some time. Have been rather busy just caught up in life...

I'd like to briefly share with you what I have been up to recently.

Below is a couple of things from our garden ...

I made quite a few Christmas cards but unfortunately didn't get any photos of them, was such a rush before Xmas, made some with die cuts and others using Mo's Digi Images.

I've also started my Baby Album of my three kidlets,

Here's a couple of pages from that ...

It's been a busy start to the year. I've already been back to work a week, and we've just been down to Taupo catching up with family. Made it back in time not to get flooded in the Waikato region, phew!!

Of the Christmas period while off work we went to Taupo for 5 days, went for a couple of picnics and I took the girls to the Hamilton Zoo on a day trip. Apart from that I just relaxed at home, I so needed the R&R!!

Below are a couple of pics of an evening we had at the Auckland Domain and a couple from the Hamilton Zoo. It is such a quaint intimate zoo, we SO, SO, must go back!!

Hamilton Zooooo below :

And finally a few cards I've made this year.

First is a card I made for my sister-in-law's birthday (a Magnolia Tilda Card) - Tilda baking as my sister-in-law is a bit of a baker.

And the inside ...

My son is turning 20!!! I know I can't believe it myself .... and I was being rather tongue in cheek when I made this card for him. I got this image from Mo's Digi Images - Jack and the Beanstalk (Grow)!!! He's only about 6"4 .... (hopefully he's stopped now) ... hehheee

And as another year rolls around ... my and hubby will be married 3yrs on 15th Feb.... we're celebrating with 2 nights in a hotel in the heart of Auckland City this year. Very much looking forward to that...

And here's the card I made him ... Magnolia Tilda Cupid card ....

And that's all for now.

Hopefully it won't be so long until the next time I blog.
