I'm Back ! ! !

Oh my god, I can't believe that I'm finally back in the land of blogging again. I have missed you all soooo much. We have had so much trouble transfering our internet service to our new home, it's been ridiculous. I wont even begin trying to explain it all. Anyway, it's up and running now, so that's all that matters. Wheew... I hope you have all been well and creating like crazy. lol. My beautiful friend Kylie, has been keeping me up to date with all that's been going on.

So much has happend in the last 3-4 weeks, my
head is still spinning. We have settled into our new home and I'm finding my way around quite well. We are expecting some very special visitors tomorrow. Kylie and her family are making the trip down to see us. I can't wait. I haven't told the kids yet, decided to keep it a suprise. I miss them so much. Kylie is bring her copics with her, so we can lock ourselves in my craft room with a bottle or 6 of our favourite wine and craft all night if we so choose. Can you tell I'm a little excited.

I took my copics with me in the car when we moved. I just didn't quite trust them to go on the long trip by themselves. I did get some colouring done while we were in our motel, just have to make them into cards now.

Here is a card I made for my Nan and Pop for Val
entines Day. Just to let them know how much they are loved. The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil. Aren't they adorable.

The next card, I made for Kylies beautiful son Brodie. I can't believe he is going to turn 16 next month. He is such a gorgeous young man, very thoughtful and kind. I just adore him. It's not a typical card for a 16 year old but it just re
minds me of him and how he has actually filled those baggy clothes.

Well, I don't think I'll be getting much sleep tonight. I just want to catch up with you all and see what you've been up to. wish me luck.

Sooo glad to be back. Take care xo Jackie

But yes I am taking my kids with me as well to visit Jackie and her gorgeous family. I picked a good weekend to get too as it's going to be 40 degrees here tomorrow and we still haven't got our air con fixed!!
