the REAL CA or BUST


You know I'm back from vacation by now (just physically) today we went to the Parade of Homes in Lakeway ($1,000,000.00 homes and up) wow! It was neat. Since we're building a home some day, we take elements we see & make notes, pictures, etc. so we will make exactly what we want (and will be allowed in the budget). Anyway - it's going to take me a while to get back in the swing of things but realized I needed to post the card I intended the day I was leaving for vacation. This is using Starving Artist Stamps Urban set with Arno in the plane. I love these images, there's a taxi cab, a helicopter, rocket & skateboard as transportation. I was so excited to make this card & post it because we were headed out that day, but oh well. Better late than never. I used Michelle's (Zindorf) MFT meets City Nights tutorial for my skyline with a few modifications, but I like how it turned out.

We had a wonderful vacation - but are happy to be home as always. Good times, sweet memories and awesome pictures to share with loved ones. I will post a few soon. Just need some time to adjust from the busyness (and I have lots of blog reading to catch up on too) like 989 posts from my favorite blogs!! gasp Pin It

OMgosh, Donna, this is so adorable! What a super fabulous scene and the reflection is awesome! I love it so much! Now, I know the sign says CA in honor of your trip, but I think that one building on the skyline looks a bit like the Space Needle--((hint hint)) LOL ;) Here, you've just returned home and I'm trying to get you to visit Seattle, hehe! I know, probably not gonna happen anytime soon, but that will not stop me from bugging u! :) hugs!
