Classic Birthday

My husband, Mark asked me to make a card for his brother's birthday.  They had a Black VW car growing up and I thought it would be a great card for Sandy!  I have made a VW punch art card in the past and loved doing it.  Love how all these punches come together to make a car.  All of the punches are from SU.  I used the ovals, circles, word window and tab punches.  The road in the background is Spellbinders nestabilities paisley die.  The sentiment inside is "From one classic to another".  Happy Birthday Sandy!!

Princess Cindy

Today is my good friend's, Cindy's birthday!  She is a Disney Lover and actually has a blog called "Disney Lover".  We have just had a wonderful trip to Disney World a few weeks ago (previous post) with Cindy and her husband, Dave.  This card was a perfect card for her!!  She is a true princess!!

I used the framelit dress die from Stampin up along with their build a blossom punch and the small oval punch for the sleeves.  Embossing folders were used for the background and the sleeves and sides of the dress.   I used the Craft white ink from SU to sponge the sides and bottom of the dress.  A touch of pearls for the sides and neckline of the dress.  Cinderella dress is so adorable!!  Love it!

Have a Magical Day!

I wanted to share a few pictures of our Disney vacation last week!  My sisters and their husbands and a very good friend (sister) and her husband all went to DisneyWorld last week and we were lucky to get in and out of Maine inbetween snowstorms!  It has been quite a winter in the Northeast getting so far a total of 6 feet of snow mostly in the month of Jan and Feb!  In all their were 8 of us and one of the Disney workers were so nice to take a picture of all of us.
Here are the husbands!

Our first day we went to Downtown Disney! Our second day we  headed to Magic Kingdom!  Magic Kingdom has added and changed so much since I was there for the first time in 1979!  Recently they have added the Snow White and 7 Dwarfs ride!  Love it!  We ate lunch in the castle of Beauty and the Beast! The inside of the castle was amazing! I took a lot of pictures which I wish I could share with you but you will have to go yourself!!

Fun ride!

Inside the castle!
We went on many other rides such as Thunder Mountain,  Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Carribean, and saw the Hall of Presidents!  The afternoon parade was awesome!  We saw Wishes that night as well as the Electrical Light Parade!  The next day we all went to Epcot, then Animal Kingdom and the last day we went to Hollywood Studios!  Some of us had some trouble with knees and we were popping our ibuprofen in the morning before we left in the morning but we were all troopers getting to do just what we wanted.  Everytime I go I do something that I haven't done.  One of all of ours favorite rides is Soarin'!  We were able to get right on it and did it a second time!  Love, love, love it!  We have heard a rumor that they are going to add more theaters and maybe even change the movie to the East coast!!
Favorite ride at Hollywood Studios!
Perfect sign!
We certainly had a Magical vacation and thanks to family and friends for making it the best!!
