Thank you to all of you. We made it home safe and sound.

We made it home safe and sound. Its so nice to go away, but it is so nice to get back home as well.
As soon as we came home, I brought our luggage in the house, then headed to my bedroom to lay in my bed. How I missed my bed. But then I fell asleep for bit, such a nice nap.

I made this card, and I want to give it to you all.
It is for all of you who have followed me and my family on my journey this last week.
Thank you for all your encouraging and comforting words.
Thank you for all your support and kindness.
This card is for all of you. Hugs to each and everyone of you.
  This is again, a card I made with my embossing powders.
All the white is heat embossed with white embossing powder, and then the blank parts are coloured with Stampin' Up markers.
 Again thank you.
I could never have thought that people I have never met, could make such an impact on my life. You have all done that, and for you all I am grateful.
My SIL and friend, Sharon, and her Husband Jim came by tonight.
I was surprised to see them.
But she told me that she missed me and wanted to see us. I was so touched and happy.
So I had to pull out all the goodies I had bought and show them to her.
I think she was just as excited as I was when I bought them. But then again, when it comes to scrapping goodies, whats mine is hers and same with her. Well except for copics and stamping, she doesn't do that.
I didn't realize until later that every time I showed her something, I would say "look what I got us". LOL.
Once I put it all out on the floor for her to look at, WOW, I got a lot of stuff.

Hope you all had a creative Sunday.
