Birthday Carnival

Hi, all! I hope you had a relaxing weekend. I spent much working on the computer, designing future stamps and dies. I feel like I accomplished so much, but I still have lots of ideas I want to make into stamps/dies. I love my job! I have been working hard as I will not be able to do much the next few weeks. We are taking about 100 kids to a youth camp on the Croatian coast for a week. I'm not much for camping, but it means so much to my girls and there's always a need for more workers. I know I will enjoy myself. I will share photos whenever possible.

Today's card uses The Craft's Meow's Life is a Carnival and Timeless Tags sets. The paper is by Echo Park.
 Here are some photos from a place I visited with our friends a couple of weeks ago. I forgot to share here some photos. This place is called Plitvicke Lakes and it's one of the prettiest places to visit in Croatia. I'm so fortunate to live just a few hours' drive from here. The lakes are crystal clear and have deep hues of blues and greens. Beautiful places like this make me more in awe of my Almighty Creator. 
And here's my favorite photo of that trip. It's my youngest with our pastor's wife, my girls' adoptive grandma in Croatia.

  7. Oh what a beautiful country. Those scenes look like something out of the Jurasic Park movie. I loved the scenery in that movie. I've never even thought of Croatia as a vacation destination but I think I'm going to go study up on your country and see if Croatia should be on my travel list.
    Oh...the card....another successful creation!

  9. Hi, Nina! I just found your blog, and am so glad. I am also a born-again believer, and I live in the U.S. I am blessed to know you are serving our Lord, Jesus Christ in Croatia! I just "followed" your blog, and would GREATLY appreciate it if you would peek at my blog and "follow" me.
