The sweet life!

As I am sitting here writing this post I feel so Lucky to have
such a blessed life.  It was so sad to see my daughter and grandson
leave on Sunday!  But how lucky am I to have such a great
relationship with her.  My daughter is one of the sweetest people I know.
Like I said I have such a blessed life!



Playing along with Texture Tuesday.  Texture I used is Yesteryear by Kim Klassen

I guess having them here and all the excitement of them coming took
it's toll on me.. Yesterday I ended up sleeping until 9:30 in the morning.
I am usually one of those early morning kinda gals. If I sleep in till 7:00 that
is late for me!  Lets just say I was in shock when I woke up and saw the time.
So how about you...   Are you a morning person?  Or do you stay up late
and sleep-in in the morning!



Tuesday means its that time again for a challenge over at
City Crafters Challenge Blog.

I am hosting again this week and came up with a pretty simple
theme.. "Just a Touch of pink"



I used this stamp that I have had for ever.
I  think it is so pretty.  Just adding that touch of pink to
her lips make her look so elegant.



So a pretty simple Tag!  Not two many embellishments.
and pretty darn easy to put together..

To get all the details on this week challenge you can hop on over to
City Crafter Challenge Blog!


Thanks so much for popping in.
I do hope you have a happy week!

Hugs, Linda

Lovely creation, Linda. :)

I'm a nite person who wakes up early. If that makes any sense. Lol.

Becs said...

What a pretty tag, I love the touch of pink which works perfectly. I'm defnintely more of a morning person and slow down as the day goes on!

I love your photo and the tag is so pretty and vintage too. I'm both :D but I'd rather lie in LOL!

cnelson said...

I can't sleep in any more, either. I'm so glad you were able to spend time with your daughter and ADORABLE grandson. This tag is absolutely STUNNING!

Julie said...

It might have been easy but it looks amazing! I'm afraid I'm not a very good sleeper so toss and turn most of the night,however if I'm given the oppertunity I can lay in very late but feel dreadfully guilty if I do! Have a great day,Julie

Catherine said...

Stella said...

This stamp made me think of Art Deco and the 20's of the last century. Gorgeous Linda; love that splash of pink!
Hugs!

augcott said...

Lottieberry said...

Your images are so lovely! I love the first one the best! I think the colors and the subject is what draws me in the most. It's so dream like!

Lynn Richards said...

One year old birthdays will do that to you!!! I much prefer morning. I love, love being in bed and reading by 9p.m.!!
Love the card, so soft and sweet.

Love your creation!!! I am not so much an early early morning person- probably because we usually start the day at 5:30 & that stinks. But on the weekends we really only sleep until about 6:30 & then we both need to get up- just can't lay there anymore.

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

This is BEAUTIFUL!! I loveeeeeeee the bit of pink!!

Lynnda Hosni said...

Beautiful tag Linda... I love the pink too...Beauty!!! Hugs...xoxo

Heather Jensen said...

I know you are missing here. I know how hard it is because I have been on the other end and was away from my mom for 8 years just to move close to her and she passed away a year later. Enjoy every minute you can with them. Life is too short!

I am a morning person for sure! I hate sleeping too late, I feel like my day is gone if I do. :)

Hugs~

papertrails leaver said...

How beautiful and elegant she is! I agree the pink lips were just enough! I can't imagine having to part with your daughter and grandson. I know it is not easy. Like you wrote, you cherish the moments you are together and have a wonderful relationship with them!

julieprice3 said...

Beautiful tag, I love that gorgeous doily and your photo today is just lovely. thanks so much for sharing
Hugs Julie P

Terry said...

So elegant and I love tha touch of color on her lips! So glad you had such a special time with your daughter and grandson! Time together should always be treasured, regardless of how often! I am always up by 6:00 AM, even on weekends! Have a lovely evening!

Gillian Olson said...

Simple maybe, but just beautiful.

Mona L. Pendleton said...

Simply stunning Linda! Hope you enjoy the rest of the week!

Sylvia said...

Beautiful tag, Linda, I love the image and that touch of pink! What a fun challenge, I can't wait to play! Have a wonderful Wednesday. Oh you know I am a night person, but I don't get much sleep anyway!

yyam said...

Wow! Gorgeous! Love that subtle touch of pink! :)

Ros said...

I love this image and I love the challenge ... Your tag is beautiful ... I'm so glad you guys had a good time ... As for me ... I'm not a morning person but I am always up by 8.45 at the latest ... now I'm retired I don't have to do early mornings anymore .... Phew!

Pieces of Sunshine said...

The card is nicely understated. You must feel better for having had a good sleep. I'm a morning person but also tend to stay up late....not always intentionally.

Audrey Pettit said...

So glad you had such an amazing time with your daughter and Myles! And I LOVE your tag! What a fun stamp. Love what you did with it! :)

Jacqueline said...

That is a beautiful tag Linda - I love that stamp too, it speaks for itself!

Deanna said...

Such a beautiful tag...and as far as morning or night, I think morning is best for me, altho my lack of sleeping has a definite effect on this. So glad you had happy, happy times with your daughter and grandson!!

Galen Pearl said...

Hi! I popped over from another blog because your blog title caught my attention. We both write about our happy places. Great blog--I look forward to reading more.

Wendy said...

Hello dear Linda, I'm happy to hear you had such a great time with your family. It's so nice to see their pictures.
I love your tag and photo of the bird. I wasn't planning on entering any challenge this week because I've so many things to do, but now I see this... hmmm...
As for sleeping in, I WISH I could sleep in but I seem to have lost that talent somehow somewhere :)

Happy week to you too!
hugs, Wendy

Colleen Dietrich said...

Sounds like my kind of challenge, that 'touch of pink'! And your little touch of pink in the form of lipstick gives such prominence to this lady's face. Beautiful!

I can't seem to sleep in late, almost ever. - especially thanks to menopause - oh joy :\

Glad you were able to get some extra ZZZs!

mustavcoffee, Gay Peplow said...

Hi there Linda, :0) That's one gorgeous tag, so pretty!! I'm a late to bed and wake early kind gal and then moan all day I've not had enough sleep LOL Hugs to you , Gay xxx

Asia King (aka Joanna K) said...

Beautiful tag, Linda! Sweet, delicate and very chic! Hugs xxx

Gayle Price said...

I do know how you feel...after having my daughter with me for a while it's almost like you have to make up for that time NOT spent together so emotionally at the end you feel a bit drained and of course sad because they've gone. :( I love your tag, so pretty and elegant and that little bit of pink is perfect. xx

Gerri Herbst said...

dear Linda, so happy you had such a wonderful visit. It must have been very special. Have been reading your posts and catching up. I adore todays card, so sweet. take care, gerri

S. Etole said...

I like the way the embellishments make it look like an old-fashioned hat. Always enjoy your creativity.

I'm definitely not a morning person.

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Sweet, and yet gorgeous!!!
good that you sleep till 9:30, haha, I usually get up around 10ish..

Catherine said...

How wonderful to have enjoyed your time with your wee little family Linda! I am for sure a morning person. I'm like you, 7 am would be sleeping in for me! LOL!
xo Catherine

Lori said...

I love your little touch of pink - this tag is gorgeous! It is always sad to see them go... (I'm an early to rise person - It would be nice to sleep until 9:30!)

Cheryl said...

This is a gorgeous tag! I love the doily/ribbon/feather accent at the top

Tracy said...

It's absolutely perfect! The touch of pink on her lips is just the right contrast to go with the other tones and I love the doily on the top half of the tag. Beautiful accent! :-) Hugs!

Lynn Stevens said...

Well lets just say its 1 a.m here and I'm still up!
not a morning person unfortunately I have to be a lot of the time for work. yuck!!!
good thing tomorrow a late day LOL
such a lovely tag!
hugs Lynn

Suzanne C said...

SO elegant and beautiful! Love this challenge. Hint of pink is always a good choice on a neutral background.
