To give you some indication of how fast time is going - my daughter Nicole is returning from her student exchange next week. She would have been away for 11 months. It is unbelievable how fast time has gone, even for those of us who were carrying on with life as usual, here in New Zealand. It just feels like a few months ago I was preparing for her to leave. She has had an amazing experience in the little town of Emmetsburg in Iowa.  And, because she has been so happy, it has been so much easier for me to cope with. More, than I ever imagined possible. Nicole has very mixed feelings about coming home which is totally understandable because she doesn't know when she'll see her wonderful host family and American friends again. I had intended on sharing the little stationery set I made for Linda (Nicole's host mum), but in my haste to post it off, I forgot to take a photo. Don't you hate that when that happens! 

Oh well...here's a photo of some more gift voucher holders I made earlier in the week instead.


Stamp Set: Baroque Motifs, Pocket Silhouettes
Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Marina Mist, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry
Ink: Marina Mist, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry
Accesories: Envelope, Scallop Edge Punch, Dimensionals

Hope you have a fabulous weekend. 


  1. Unbelievably beautiful hope I get to see them for real today :)

  2. WOW, Debbie - I remember the week she left like it was yesterday! Hasn't that time gone quickly!? So glad she'll be home soon, but understand her mixed feelings. xxoo


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. I really enjoy reading them. Regards, Debbie
