Where has the time flown?

Well it's been awhile and so much has happened... We went on holidays to Qld to see our family.  They finally got to meet the newest member of our family Mikayla who in 10 days time turns 1... I can't believe this year has flown by!  We had one of the best holidays and rather refreshing we really needed it.  Mikayla took her first steps on holidays at Grandpa's plus she waved and said bye bye for the first time.  Was so excited to see this and it was so cute!

When we flew home to WA we landed at midnight, half way home which is a good 2 hours we blew a front left tire at 110k's that is sheer suicide (OUCH)...just glad it was Darryn driving and not me.  Well no RAC service for that time of morning as there is no 24 hour roadside asist in that area...huh?  Now you ask why didn't we change the tire ourselves...hmmm pitch black 2:30am in the morning no lights on a dark part of the highway - plus couldn't work out that there was plastic caps over the bolts on the wheel.  What was the go with that?  Finally a couple who had a rough day with cars pulled up an helped us out so we were home by 4:30am and into bed only to have my husband turn around and drive back to the airport to pick up friends who stayed with us for these past two weeks.  They now leave in the morning.

I made a card for my adopted dad that I would like to share with you tonight.  I used "The Stamps of Life" by Stephanie Bernard.  Have a look The Stamps of Life her shipment fee's are cheap especially internationally and  I have fallen in love with the stamps that Stephanie makes they are just what I need on my Scrapbook pages, but I have been able to play with cards and feel comfortable in making them.  So here is my first card using a couple of her stamps.
I used the flower from flower2build with the Tim Holtz distress inks and I got this effect...Wow.  Also the other stamp I used was "I thank my God every time I remember you.  Philippians 1:3

I hope you like as much as I do and check out The Stamps of Life website.
