*Did You Miss Me?*

I'm so sorry to have left you without any posts for the past week. I attempted to schedule some posts but thought that there was a problem with Blogger.... instead, it turns out that I messed up the date and it posted in October instead of November. So I didn't bother to post any more since I didn't see them posting.

Operator Error LOL

Anyway... we took off on Saturday morning for a week of fun in the sun in Puerto Vallarta. We tagged along with our TaeKwon Do instructor and his family. They head down there at this time every year with 13 family members. Usually they are a group of 17... this year the four of us and my sister from Ontario joined them making it a group of 22!

This was our first trip to Mexico and only our second tropical vacation. We had a wonderful time in the sun. We stayed at the brand new Riu Palace Pacifico. What a beautiful resort. The weather was hot and sunny.... absolutely perfect.

We arrived home around suppertime on Saturday and woke up on Sunday to snow... so this card kind of illustrates how I'm feeling these days. It's really tough to go from such wonderful hot weather to snow!

This image I took from Crystal at the Calgary Classic and coloured it up with my Copic markers. Nothing too exciting with the card, but it looks the way I feel LOL!

Cheers

Super cute card, Nancy! :)

Wow, what a nice vacation! Wish I could have stowed away in your suitcase! lol :) We're calling for snow tomorrow...not looking forward to that, but just flurries, though. We'll see, but I'm not ready for all the white stuff yet! :(

Hope ya have a great day and that ya get in some R & R time. Sometimes we need a rest after a vacation, since we're always on the go while we're away. Take care! :)

Hugs,
Julie

Glad you had good weather for your south of the border trip! It has been in the 80's (degrees) here in San Diego! Calgary does get nippy! Your snowman card is adorable! Guess it is time for hot cocoa and whip cream! Deb

It wouldn't be Christmas for you without your snowmen! He's so cute! I clicked on the link for where you went - BEAUTIFUL! Did you like going for just a week or did you like going for longer when you went to the Dominican?? We are in the process of thinking about a vacation... this looks so GOOOD!
