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

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,

Have a Merry Christmas!

Hello Friends!  Gosh, can you believe that Christmas is only a couple of days away???  Wow!

I've managed to recycle a little box .. it's one of those Starbucks Refreshers boxes.  Some of my family will be arriving this week, and I wanted to put a little gift card in each box.  :)

I used this sweet "Thinking of You" stamp along with "Christmas Handwritten Phrases".  And then I know it's a bit impossible to see .. lol .. but I've used the beautiful Krafty Christmas papers.  And all of this is from your lovely Lili of the Valley store!!

I hope you are all ready for Christmas!  I wish you all a most BEAUTIFUL & MERRY Christmas filled with loads of love and laughter!

Thank you so much for visiting me .. I love it when you do!  I'll see you again soon!
Warm Hugs,

Lili of the Valley Sale!!!

Hey Friends!  Lili of the Valley is having a great sale going on .. how awesome is that?!  Just in time for Christmas!  :)

Here's some info straight from the Lili of the Valley Inspirational Blog:

SPECIAL SEASONAL OFFERS - To make way for all the gorgeous new stamps that we've got planned for next year we thought it was only good and proper to have a bit of winter sale of some of our older (but just as lovely) designs. From now until Monday 7th January (or whilst stocks last) over 50 of our lovely unmounted rubber stamps are only £3.00, so get your skates on and have a look at our offers page!

CARD PAYMENTS UPDATE Next time you buy online at, you may notice when you pay with your credit or debit card, that the page looks slightly different. We still use the same secure system, but the name has changed to Realex Payments rather than HSBC. It is also a little easier to use. Just select the 'Secure Credit and Debit Card Payments' option and fill in your details as usual. We just wanted to let you know in case you were concerned that it looked different.

WEBSITE OPEN OVER CHRISTMAS Just a quick reminder to let you know you will be able to order throughout Christmas on our website. Please be aware however that any orders placed after 2pm (UK Time) on 12th December, won't be despatched until we are open again on Monday 7th January.

Hope you know you deserve it .. go on and give yourselves a TREAT!  hehe!  :)
See you again soon!
Warm Hugs,

Sweet Delivery

** Thank you so much Deep Ocean Challenge Blog for selecting me as one of your Top 3!  I am truly honored!**

Hello Friends!  Hope you are all doing very well so far this week!  :)

My little Bodhi will have his Christmas Chapel Perfomance tonight .. we're so excited to see it again this year.  I remember his last year Kindergarten Christmas play .. it was extremely windy and cold that night.  But with everyone piled in the Chapel, it was so cozy and warm with all the families filled with excitement.  And as soon as I saw Bodhi walking down the aisle with the other Kindergarteners .. oh gosh .. talk about "water works".  I'm such a crybaby when it comes to that kind of stuff!  LOL!!!  It's just so beautiful you know?  :)

Anyway, I've made some time to play with my very FIRST Saturated Canary image.  :)  Yes ... I think they are DARLING!

Getting Ready for Christmas ...

Hi Friends!  Hope you are all well!  :)

Me, I've had a very busy week with lots of appointments, and have managed to catch the strep throat that my hubby and son had.  And when I gave Bodhi his vitamin today, he says, "Mommy!  Oh no!  You touched my vitamin!  You're gonna get me sick!"  *Hands went straight to my hips* .. and I said, "Uhhhh -yea.  WHO got me sick in the first place?!"  *giggles & realization on his end* and then, "Ohhhhh Mommy, NOT me."  LOL!!!  :)

So I've had a play with this DARLING Lili of the Valley "Hanging the Stockings" stamp.  I love the way she's tippie toeing on a present to reach wayyy on up there and hang the stockings .. hehe!  You almost wanna reach in there and help lift her up to reach that nail don't ya?  So CUTE she is!!!
