If Friends Were Flowers ...

Hi Ya's!  Hope you're all doing very well!  Are you all ready for the new year to begin?  :)  Will you be doing any special celebrations?

My family is here in town .. so we'll be celebrating here at our home.  Having been born and raised in Hawaii .. New Years was always a HUGE celebration for us.  So to have some of my family here during this time will be special.  :)

Bodhi is over the moon happy that Grandpa is here.  And it's so nice to see him feel so close to my Dad.  When they get together, I'm not sure who makes more noise .. lol!  And Bodhi must've bombarded my Dad with about 5 different games within the first hour and a half of being together.  hahaha!!!  It's pretty cute to witness.  :)

Anyway .. I've made a card using "If Friends Were Flowers" from the latest LOTV release.  I really love this image .. it can be used for so many different occasions!  Birthdays, Friendship, Love, Get Well Soon .. pretty much anything!  Have you all gotten your fill from the newest LOTV release?  sigh .. they are just so DARLING aren't they?!!!!


Medium:  Distress Inks
Papers:  DCWV

Well, thank you SO very very much for all the love you've given me throughout the year!!  You all are so WONDERFUL to me .. thank you!!!

Wishing you a FABULOUS 2013 and I'll see you soon!

Big Hugs,
Elise

Hi Elise! ❤
My friend, your celebrations for welcoming the new year sounds absolutely marvellous! There's just nothing better than being able to spend time with your loved ones, me thinks ;) And I can picture cute little Bodhi in front of me together with your dad playing games - to cute! We are always invited to spend New Years at friends house but we declined this year ;) It's hard with a baby so it will just be the four of us at home here ;) Signe really looks forward to it anyways so that's good ;) lol!!

Oh sweetie! Your latest creation are simply stunning! Just breathtaking :) Your coloring is beautiful and beyond and my word you used many amazing flowers on here! Awesome!

Happy new year! ❤
