Framed Anya

Hi Friends! It's midnight and we just returned to our hotel room after a day at Disneyland. We're staying at Disney's Grand California Resort. I really recommend the Grand California if you have older kids. . .we always stay here whenever we visit Disneyland. It's a very nice hotel. . it's clean and access to Downtown Disney, Disney Adventure Park and the monorail to Disneyland are so convenient. I think it's a lot better situated than Disneyland Resort. Grand California is much more the older kid or adult resort compared to the Disneyland Resort. It's much more quiet too. LOL!

Wow, Disneyland was really nice. . .the crowd wasn't too bad and getting on the rides averaged 15 to 30 minutes. Gosh, if you've never been to Disneyland. . .waiting in line to get on the rides can be a total bummer. The average wait is at least an hour long or more. Hey. . .the Big Thunder is such a fun ride if you ride it at night. . . .not so much during the day. It's a different perspective at night. I've always rode that ride during the day and I always felt it was a a mediocre ride but it felt different riding it at night. What is your favorite ride at Disneyland? I love "Space Mountain". I could ride it over and over.

Anyway. . .now to my card. Tuesday was my last day as a designer at the Greeting Farm. I had so much fun being a DT at the Greeting Farm. I'll miss being a designer but that doesn't mean I'll stop using their stamps. I love the Greeting Farm images. It's funny because I've never heard of the Greeting Farm up until 4 months ago. Where have I been, huh?

Well I decided to create a card using Dress Me and Wardrobe 2 set. I was playing around with my Nestabilities die and created the frame using two different size of the same die shape. It's an easy way to create a frame around your image. I mounted the frame using foam tape to give it a 3D appearance around the image. The designer papers on my card are by the Greeting Farm also.

I'm sorry I can't visit your blogs and say hello. I don't have much time to visit. I'll resume my blurfing when I return home from my Disney vacation on Sunday.

I don't have any pictures to share of my day at Disney. . .I decided to leave my camera in the hotel room today because I always bring my camera and sometimes it can be a pain to carry it around. I'll bring it with me tomorrow and take a few pictures.

I hope you all have a wonderful Friday!!!

Hi Maria,

I have been visiting your lovely blog for quite a while now but not commented before.

You really do make some fabulous things and this lovely card is no exception.

Your chat about your day in Disneyland has set me longing for my hols in November. We are coming out to Orlando then from the UK, with our son and daughter, their partners and their two baby (well tiny tots) daughters. It will be our 6th visit but the 1st with the little ones and I can't wait to see their faces when they see The Magic Kingdom.

Maria, you have been an inspiration with your gorgeous creations as part of the DT and with your fun-to-read blog! I will still look forward to seeing what you do each day! :-) Traci

Cami said...

Another lovely card, Maria. Your creativity just flows and flows. I know TGF will definitely miss having you on the team because you bring "life" to their images! You have done very well and in fact, any image you have forms "character" with your creative mind! Love all your interpretations. Hugs, Cami

This is so cute, Maria! You always make such beautiful creations. Yes, The Greeting Farm images are super adorable. Totally agree. I just recently discovered them and got a couple of digi images. Unfortunately, I don't have any regulr stamps yet. The ones I really want are out of stock. :(
I haven't been to Disneyland in ages. I will probably be going there often once my babies are a little older. I am glad you are having a great time.

Just getting around to blog today. Started at the bottom of my list since I don't make it all the way through. Beautiful card, as usual, Maria. Great idea to create your own frame. Did you use liquid pearls around the frame?

You'll be enjoying all the fireworks at Disneyland tonight. Happy 4th.. ..{{{hugs}}}
