Birthday Wishes - Gina K

Happy Monday! New week already! Boy our vacation went super fast!  Hubby and I returned home from late Saturday night and on Sunday we went to see Cirque Du Soleil which was in Baltimore. If you ever have a chance to see one of the shows I highly recommend going for it is really awesome to watch all the different acts. It amazes me to see shows like this and the Olympics and see how far the human body can be stretched and perform feats that are totally unbelievable. 

On Friday we had our very own stunts in a 1941 Biplane! We did this in Cocoa Beach Florida and we did loops and rolls! I loved it but hubby had to quit after a few for his motion sickness started and well, I didn't want him sick and I surely didn't want to be thrown up on:) Pictures below!

Today my two cards are created using one of the "Natures Greetings Stamp Kit"  stamps.  Did you ever just want to make cards without thinking about it? Well, then this kit is for you! Nature's Greeting Stamp Kit includes; DVD with 6 complete card projects from start to finish! Stamp Set, Card Stock, Patterned Paper, Ribbon and brads. This is my own versions of one of the cards on the DVD.  The pretty paper is "Petals and Wings" one of the beautiful paper packs by Gina.  I do enjoy making these types of cards without complex images to color and they are quick and easy!  On the DVD are several techniques that are fun and easy peasy to create! You'll love it!

Pictures of hubby and I   This was the actual plane we went up and away in!


We had to wear parachutes since we would be doing aerobics! 
 Take off

Cocoa Beach

Those dots are cows


Road  and bridge from the mainland to Cocoa. This was right after a storm so it is still very cloudy at times. 


Cape Canaveral 

We are rolling!


And upside down in this photo!! It was awesome and so smooth. Nothing like a roller coaster:)

See the smile on my face! Look at my bangs - they are straight up in the air! 

Hope you enjoyed!

What beautiful cards and I loved your post too! I have always wanted to try flying in those old style bi-winged planes but feel nervous just thinking about the acrobatic things they do! Saw this on MIM.
