I'm Back!

Hi peeps. I am back. The last few days been quite a ride for me. On one side I am so happy & grateful that I get to spend a few wonderful days with my brother & his girlfriend. They're both just so cute & adorable together! On the other hand, I got even more homesick. 4 days are just not enough for catching up when you haven't seen each other for a couple years. And trust me.... the water works were working over time!! I was crying my eyes out yesterday after dropping them off at the airport.

I still not really feeling 100% myself, still a bit sad, so I will post about what we did and our trip when I feel more up to it. :) Right now, still trying to fight my sadness and get  back in the swing of things. Hubby tried to cheer me up by getting a tiramisu cheesecake from Cheescake Factory. Thanks for the thoughtfulness, honey!! It helps a little, but I'm still a bit mopey. Yeah, when it comes to saying bye to my mom or my brothers, I become a cry baby. I tried not to, but it's really hard, cause I miss them like crazy.

Well, let's move on as I have quite a few things to share. First, sales announcement.  MyGrafico is celebrating the 1st Day of fall with 40% off everything in the store. ONE DAY ONLY



Next, is the tag I made for Digital Doodle. I used the pumpkin image from "Thankful" set and paper pieced the tag & added glitters. Check out here for all the DT amazing creations.



Then, here's my card for Paper Play "Coffee & Cream" challenge sponsored by Phindy's. Create any project using these colors. At first, I was worried that it's going to be hard to make a card using these colors, but at the end, I ended up liking the colors. :) Makes the card looks a bit vintage in my opinion. You know me, I am not good at creating vintage look, but I do love the way this card turned out.


Last, but not least, is my card for Digi Doodle Shop's Best embossing challenge. I used Papertrey Ink's impression plates to create the embossed background. I simply adore this mice & pumpkin image. I used them before, but I just love playing with it.


I am hoping that I will get to catch up on everything by this weekend. Hope you can join us on these fun challenges! Thank you for stopping by. Hugs, Vera.

Cute!

I know what you mean about having a hard time seeing family leave. The Lord has been very good to me, providing opportunities for my family to stop by or for my husband and I to go back to see my family for Thanksgiving every year, but its still hard. Before three years ago, I had never spent more than a week away from home and I still feel sad whenever they have to leave. :) But I am so thankful for the opportunities that I get to see them!
