Happy Chinese New Year (also: where have I been?)

First of all, Happy Chinese New Year!  After getting the hint that it is the year of the dragon, I made this card to send to Emily of Art from the Heart:

Things that make me happy:
1) A*muse woodgrain paper in red
2) silver embossing
3) the dragon's feet working perfectly with the letters
4) getting this mailed on time. 
The dragon and sentiment are both from old A*muse.  I think both are still available from the new version, but "Happy" is being retired.

Other things that make me happy:
Yes, it's the Magic Kingdom!  Mr Corgi found a good airline deal, so we went over MLK weekend.  It was AWESOME (as usual).  I must admit the most awesome part was our hotel.  We use a credit card that gets us hotel points (with no annual fee, and we always pay off our bill every month, so it has cost us nothing) and this time we went all out and used them to stay at the Waldorf-Astoria.  This is what we got to see out from our balcony or window every night:
Pretty awesome, huh?  This was our view in the daytime:
If anyone out there is planning a Disney trip, I would highly recommend The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World. By following the touring plans in the book (they even have little tear-out copies to carry), we rode every major ride twice and the longest we waited was about 30 minutes. 

I just love Disney, but we also have love for SeaWorld, especially when there is a baby whale involved!  So I'll just end with that for today:
Eek!  So cute!
