Hello 2012!!

Dear Friends, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year celebrations!  Didn't the year 2011 go by so quickly, especially the month of December.  We had a great time over Christmas and it was especially lovely that my parents get to spend time with all their children.  After Christmas, I went to Bangkok to meet up with some friends, to celebrate a dear friend's birthday, and to experience the New Year celebration in a different country.  So, I guess you could say 2011 ended in a most memorable way - I had good company, great food and wonderful shopping!!

Now that things are back to normal here, it's nice to be able to join the Unity Friends with Flair once again.
Here's my card:


2011 has been a difficult year, in many ways, for our family, nevertheless, we are not short of God's grace and goodness.  And, I'm thankful for being able to stamp and colour for it brings much joy.  I hope it shows in this card that there's always hope in this life.

Thanks for visiting.  Your comments always bring a smile to my face.

Have an awesome day!!
Kary
