Stamp and Emboss

I have this new set called Silhouette Vines
 +  Basic Grey Piccadilly
= this"Thank You" card
THANK YOU-1
AND.....I am BACK from Florida! My head is still spinning from the traveling! However, I surely had a blast staying at the resort, visiting Universal Studio and riding all the Harry Potter rides! I was so happy that I met up with Lin on the 23rd!
(Lin, Denny, Virginia, Dr. John and David- photo credit: Stephanie)
 It's been a year since we saw each other last in Feb. 2011! Well, we both are getting a dose of Florida sunshine together and our family got to spend an afternoon exploring the grounds at the resorts.
 Hero Arts friends (and family)
We looked pretty relaxed and happy, don't we?
 This was a photo of our resort--Portofino Bay Resort at Universal Studio, Florida. It's a replica of Portofino, Italy. The resort is amazing with the luxurious amenities and beautiful architecture details.  It was an ideal getaway!  

I will have a travel post in the next few days. Lots of fun stuff to share!
  I miss reading your sweet comments.....and thank you for sticking around!

Looking forward to reading all about your travels, and I love the card. I just got the Piccadilly pad & I love how you used the different patterns & added the banner :)

Welcome home! We went to Florida in 2010, but did not have the time to get to see HP, much to all of our disappointment. :0(
I have some background stamps to experiment with now! ;0)

What, you're not Thing 1 in your household? Looks like you had a fabulous time. Beautiful card! Love the little pops of colour the butterflies add.

Brenda & Ian said...

Please, bring me a set of the Thing 1 & 2 shirts for my Kidlets (grandchildren). Heck bring a set for me and my Hubby!

Brenda from Maple Ridge, BC

Actually we are passing thru Visalia en route to Needles, on the Colorado R, in our travel trailer

Do I really need to go all the way to Florida to get those shirts?
