Today the bloggers challenge is to make a birthday card. Since Sarah's birthday is in early April, this was a perfect opportunity to make that card.
I wanted to do something really nice for her on her 23rd birthday so I took some ideas from Nichole Heady and CASE'd a card she made. To case a card means basically to copy it.
I don't own the same supplies that Nichole did, so mine looks different in a variety of ways, but I can't take credit for the beautiful design. I just executed one using her design. So this one below is mine.
Isn't this lovely. I adore the color combination and the design effect. I am very excited that I'll be able to hand deliver this beautiful card to Sarah next week. I have a business trip to Munich Germany and I looked into flights to Ukraine. I was so happy that there was a direct flight from Munich to Lviv and it's less than 500 miles and under 2 hours. When I added the Lviv city onto my trip and a Saturday night stay, the flight from Boston-Munich-Lviv-Boston was less than a direct flight from Boston-Munich. Awesome. So of course, I made arrangements to fly from Munich Friday to Lviv to see my girl. I think Sarah will have to take a 4-6 hour train ride to get to Lviv from her village, but she is able to take Friday off and it is not a problem.
I am excited to experience eastern Europe. I think I'm in for an adventure and I think Sarah will enjoy seeing me, getting all the stuff I'll bring her and seeing the city. Below is a photo of the hotel that Sarah is going to reserve for us. It looks very interesting and the reviews are good.
Bob and I had planned to visit Sarah in her village in April. Once my work trip came together and this weekend to Lviv, we decided to postpone our other visit to her until the summer. Luckily I was able to modify our flights without penalty so now I'll see her in March and then again in June. In June we'll have quite a bit of time to go into her village and also visit Budapest Hungary. That should be an adventure also.
So that is my Europe trip update. Stop back by and check out my updates and photos. I'm sure I'll have a story of two.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.
