Dreamin Card Using Art By Miran Tania, CTMH Blossom Paper and Several Cricut Cartridges

Hello friends.  I am back again from sunny CA.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful Mother's Day.  I am not sure which countries celebrate Mother's Day and which ones don't. I will get to see my mother in a few weeks; but not today.  My husband took me out to eat on Thursday; so we wouldn't have to deal with the crowds on Mother's Day.  

I finished creating my last card to give my grandkids before their trip to CA.  If you have been following my blog; then you have probably seen all the others.  It has been fun creating these cards; trying to keep their excitement going.  It was over 60 days when I sent their invitation; which makes it hard to keep the momentum going.  This one is "Pack Your Bags" card.  I had to use several Cricut Disney cartridges on it.  

I sent them a Disney map with their 10 day card.  I thought I would build up the momentum even more with that one.  I figured they could plan their entire day before they ever get here.  It will make it easier for all of us if they do.  LOL!  I think their mother is going to wring my neck; because it has been a lot of excitement to deal with for over 2 months.  LOL!  

I found the perfect image for this - Art By Miran Tania.  Isn't she cute?  She is reading her flight information and getting ready for her trip to CA.  We are taking the kids to Disneyland, to the beach and to an Aquarium; so all of these images go with the activities we have planned while they are here.  I think I am more excited than they are.  LOL!
