AnnaBelle's Say it with......Thanks

Hello All, we have finally returned from our Vacation/Holiday in the USA, what an amazing time we had!
It is hard to believe after all the planning, it is now over- the time went too quickly!
but as always is is great to return home again and not live out of a suitcase!
Speaking of suitcases, we left Melbourne with 2 suitcases inside 2 empty suitcases and returned with 6 filled to the brim- oops!  The shopping was fabulous, we all have new clothes and shoes!
There was very little craft shopping, I only stepped foot inside one craft shop- what was I thinking!
There was just not enough time to fit everything in, so the craft shopping was sacrificed, don't feel sad for me, I definitely made up for it in other stores!
I will share some photos in the next week (Promise!!) when I finally find my feet again and get into some kind of routine again!

anyhoo, best get on to sharing the new challenge at AnnaBelle's this week.......

 This week we are Saying it with........ "Thanks!"

The Belle's are spicing it up a little and using a variety of background stamps, if you need some inspiration to dust off your backgrounds, make a round of the Belle's blogs and enjoy their fabulous creations!

Use Tag : ac088

Our Prize for this weeks challenge is a $10 Shopping Voucher for the store.

Using Cardabilities #60 as my inspiration for today's card, I think my inspiration is still on holidays and this sketch really took my fancy!

I'm sure sleeping in your own bed is a big plus too!! Had to giggle at the 6 suitcases returning. Next time bring a big carry on case for craft supplies! I know Keesh just loaded up on PTI etc. when here as it was way cheaper.

You definitely did not lose any mojo during your absence. Your card is fabulous!!

Look forward to seeing pictures :)
