Welcome Home Card


 Hello crafter's. So happy you stopped by. If you have read some of my recent post, then you know that my daughter and grandkids have moved next door. I am sooo happy to have them so close.

 They spent their second night In their new home last night. She had us over last night for supper and I helped my granddaughter Scarlett paint her bedroom. This is the second time she has painted. Didn't like the color the first time. She is so excited to finally have her own room.

So I want to share with you a card that I made them. A welcome home card.


 My daughter was so excited to put up their new mail box. So I thought this image was perfect. 


 Also wanted to let you know that I had a wonderful time on my vacation. 

Went back to Sanibel Island and had the best time. Stayed in the same Condo as last year. It's the closest one to the water and the best view.

One day I was in the water looking for shells and a dolphin was about 10 feet from me. Splashing and flipping around. It was wonderful and my favorite moment of the whole trip. 


Taken on the last day that I was there. (I didn't want to leave)

 This is where I would sit and look for dolphins and watch the birds. Love watching them.

Here is a few pictures of some of the shells I found. Didn't get as many as I did last year. 

That's it for me, Hope that you enjoyed your visit. Happy day to you all and hope you can make it back.
