*It's Been A Week?*

So sorry to have not posted earlier. I got back from my Cruise vacation on Sunday night, spent Monday doing laundry and relaxing, then Tuesday running around as it was Matthew's 12th birthday and I went away on vacation totally unprepared for it. Wednesday I went back to work.

I was in bed last night before 10pm, which is something I *never* do. I've been nothing but tired since I got home.

I had a wonderful time cruising the Caribbean with my sister last week. It was so relaxing and fun. My favourite event was the excursion to the Dolphin Academy in Curacao. We were in a small group of 6 people with one trainer and three dolphins!! Basically, Heather and I had a dolphin between the two of us for about 45 minutes. It was *SO* cool! Our other three excursions were all snorkeling... I think my favourite of the three of them (Aruba, St Maarten and St Thomas) was the Bones tour in St Thomas. The snorkelling was fantastic with clear water and sea turtles and the crew on the pirate ship was a lot of fun.

One more trip away in a few more weeks, then I am done for a bit. My two sisters and I are taking our Mom to Vegas to celebrate her 70th birthday the first weekend in April. Should be a lot of fun!

I created this card after being inspired by a card on Tammy's blog. I loved the look of it!

I used all Bazill cardstock, added some flowers I got at the Scrapbook Pantry, some bling and a Doodlebug flocked brad. The sentiment is one of my favourites from A*Muse.

I really like how this card turned out... the design, the colours... it is truly one of my favourites!

Thanks for popping by!

I love how you made a fence with the word window punch - very clever!! It's a gorgeous card. Do you need my address? LOL

I love this card! What did you use to make the 'ovals'? Was it a punch or something else?
