Lovely, Luscious LACE!


KEEP READING FOR TODAY'S BLOG HOP INFO!! MY BLOG IS THE STARTING POINT!
Hello, dear friends!! I'm sorry to have been absent!! Dave and I returned on Friday from a 5 day vacation in Las Vegas! We planned it in January to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.  We had a wonderful time away from work! We walked and walked and saw some shows. Oh yes, and ate! We loved it! I can't show any pictures because I left my camera at one of the shows and despite my many checks with the hotel no one turned it in! I was sick about the lost pictures I had takend, but then just had to get over it and instead I bought some disposable cameras.  The internet is so wonderful that I ordered a new camera (Thanks, Dave!) and it arrived at home the same day we did!  Here's a pic of our kitties Charlie and Violet! We sure missed them! 
And, now back to another love, papercrafting!  Today is the Design Team for Magnolia-licious Monthly blog hop!  Our theme this time is LUSCIOUS LACE!  We want to see lace on your projects!!  As I mentioned, I'm the start, but you can find the whole order and all the deets here on the Magnolia-lcious Blog!
I'm not typically a Princess card kind of person, but one of the hotels near our hotel was the Excalibur, which is just like a castle!  It was wonderful! As was our hotel, New York, New York (and all the others we visitied!). Anyway, the castle inspired me to make this card!  I think it will make a great birthday card for our great-niece!
I've used #304 LITTLE PRINCESS and #500 EDWIN'S KNIGHT CASTLE FOR  for my card.  Diana has lovingly bundled minis from the Prince and Princess Collection so the prices  and values are OUTSTANDING!! I'm using Lillyrose next!!

Here is te close up of Tilda looking over at the neighboring castle just as Dave and I did in Vegas!!
And, now you are off the see the fabulous creation by DT sister MINDY BAXTER!  Hey, Mindy, don't you live near Las Vegas?!
Back to work today! I wish you a Marvelous Monday!!
See you very soon!!
P.S.  Please remember~you have until the end of the month for our baby challenge too!!  That post is HERE!
I'm also entering my card in the My Time Made Easy sketch challenge!  That's HERE!

Holly AKA KopyKat said...

this is so adorable. Happy Anniversary! I lost my camera in Las Vegas too! I was so sad, my BFF got married and I lost all the pics. I wanted to scrap book the event and so my husband suggested I look on line (googled Vegas) and print pic's of the places we went and just journal about it. That turned out to be my favorite scrap page.

Sandy said...

Oh I love your cats and YES I am a cat lady. Your card is delightful. I am so glad you had a get away with your husband to celebrate your anniversary but sorry to hear about your camera. Once again your card is wonderful - I love the feeling of peeking through a window!
