Lexus Birthday

I made the card for my niece Carine. I had to use my bella stamp for her card, cause all I have on my mind is that at 4 pm I have to return my car to Lexus!
I know that this may seem silly to some of you, but today is a sad day for me. I've leased this baby for 5 years and today she needs to go home. My husband told me to lease another one...i really love my car...but I want to wait until after we come back from our vacation this summer to lease something else.
There is a little story behind this car.
When Steve and I got married, Steve was going to buy me a Corvette as a wedding gift when we returned from our Honeymoon.But when we came home from our Honeymoon, I wasn't feeling well. I was throwing up and tired all the time. A quick visit to the doctor confirmed that I was pregnant. The Corvette was converted to a MiniVan. Ugghhhh! LOL! We quickly outgrew the mini van and I upgraded to a Surburban. I had the Surburban for almost ten years and Steve thought it was time to get another truck. I told him that if he came home with another truck for me to drive I would serve him with papers! LMBO! I had driven that thing around, hauling kids and sports equipment, everyday for ten years and I could parallel park on a dime, but now I wanted something just for me and my purse! I saw a Lexus on the road and knew that that was the car I should be driving. Steve thought it was too feminine, but it was for me... right??!! So for mother's day he ordered me my purple car! And I have loved every minute that I have driven it. But, it's time for this Bella to go back, and for me to put some mileage on my other car, the Escalade. Unless, I just come home with another new Lexus today!
Have a great one!
