YOU are My Sunshine!

ALOHA!
I'm back from "vacation" and so anxious to begin stamping and blogging again! I've missed you all and can't begin to thank you enough for all the encouraging and endearing comments you've left on my last post. You inspire me and I treasure your friendship. A warm and sincere Mahalo! :)

Hubby & I have just returned from a fabulous trip to Hawaii to visit our daughter Katie and I've attached a few photos for you... one of us our first night there, enjoying happy hour and looking a bit "travel weary", but it's the only one I have of all three of us together. The weather was a bit windy and rainy while we were there, but we saw some of the most spectacular rainbows... and yes, we did see plenty of sunshine and gorgeous sunsets too! The rainbow photos are taken out KT's condo window and the sunset is at Waikiki Beach.

How's this for a simplistic card to ease myself back into stamping? It's made with special thanks to my sweet DIL Jami at Crazy Daisy Creations who gave me the Studio G clear stamp set. She thought it would be perfect for my return to stamping! :) And this card is also for all of you my friends. YOU are my SUNSHINE!

Oh, Happy Day! :) Hugs & Smiles, Pam























p.s. would you believe I have 497 posts on my blog reader to catch up on? Oh my! I've really missed reading blogs too and can't wait to see what you've all been creating lately!

YIPPEEEE SKIPPY! Pam is back! :)

I've missed you, your warm and wonderful and funny words, your smiles and your art.

I'm so envious of your "little" vacation you took. But at the same time I'm looking a bit green, I'm tickled pink for you! (Pink and green go together, eh?)

Welcome back Pam. I love the sunny card of return you've posted!

Jennifer :)

I missed you Pam and thought of you often! Welcome back to warm sunny Norfolk. ;P How about a little ice to make you feel at home.
Love the pics. Katie is such a lovely girl. (a wee bit bigger than when I saw her in person...maybe 1984?) So glad your home!
