Vegas Baby!

Our 26th wedding anniversary was on December 27th.  Most years we go to Las Vegas for our anniversary, but this year there was just too much going on that we will have to wait till sometime in January, we love to go to Vegas.  So since we were not going on our anniversary I made my hubby this card.  It came out so cute, I love it and hope you think the same.

Wow, looking at it I used a lot of cartridges to create this card, well 5 that is a lot for me on one card.  The background starry night paper is from an outdoor stack I bought for making guy cards, but it fit perfectly here.  The "Vegas" is from the Tie the Knot cartridge and using Cricut Craft Room I welded the word "baby: from A Child's Year cartridge and sparkly glitter paper.  The Las Vegas sign is from the cartridge Destinations, I cut it in several layers using a shinny holographic like paper for the skyline, and pop dotted the sign.  The rode I cut using the My Community cartridge, it was a freebie I got way back when I got my first Expression, but there are so many useful images on it.
Then I chose the 57 Chevy from the Nifty Fifties cartridge because my hubby had one this exact color when he was younger....................oh so many many years ago ha-ha!  I even added a small heart sticker to the back fender.  This whole card fell together so well for me, you know sometimes you picture something in your head and it just does not work on paper, well this one did.  Yeah!
Here is how I finished the inside.  Although the outside of the card is a bit fun and I go with a mussy inside as my hubby does ever so much for me and probably 90% of the housework because I can't due to a spinal cord issue.  He is so wonderful and never complains, not even when I buy more stuff I "have" to have, LOL.
Well thanks so much for stopping by, would love to hear what you think of my card.
And a very very Happy New Year to all!

What an amazing card Donna! Being a hubby myself... I can tell you that if he never complains, it's because you love him so much and he knows it. It's amazing how much you will do for someone you know truly loves and appreciates you. That's why Jill and I are so great together. There is nothing we wouldn't do for each other. It all comes back again and again. I bet he has a special place he keeps all of your adorable hand made cards... besides that special place in his heart. Happy Anniversary and Happy New Year!
