Sigh, I finally have something new to post. I've been MIA for a while as my hubby and I helped our son and his girlfriend move to Oahu last week. Sob-sob, I really miss them a lot.
During our trip, I was able to squeeze in a little bit of craft shopping and couldn't wait to play with my new Sizzix "Flip It" die. I got this at J's Knicknack's. I remember making a card similar to this a while ago without the die and boy did I struggle. This die is GREAT, just one pass thru my Big Shot and wala, just need to fold and design. How cool is that?
Since I had to make a thank you card for my friend, I chose Bouquet Birgitta because I love the pretty bouquet she's holding. Then placed her on the "brick wall" which I made using the Sizzix embossing folder. The flourish and leaves are from Dora in a recent fun swap we did. Thanks Dora. The cherry blossom is by Wild Orchid, and the other flowers and buds are from Photo Craft on Oahu. Other supplies: Copic, butterfly punch by Martha Stewart, pearls by Kaiser Craft, ribbon by Offray, and DP by Doodlebug from Island Scrapbooking.
I'm entering this card in the Wild Orchid Challenge - Week 46 "Things with Wings."
Here what the card looks like when you start to open it. Do you see the circle portion "flipping?"
And here's the inside when fully opened.
Of course we couldn't return home without some manapua from Chun Wah Kam in Waimalu. We got a variety....Pizza, Kalua Pork, Spicy Pork, and my favorite, Char Siu.
AND when my hubby and I stopped by Zippy's in Pearlridge for lunch, he saw a sign saying they are now selling malasadas. Ummm, the picture looked really yummy so we decided to try just one....just in case. Oh boy, were we surprised. It WAS DEEEELICIOUS, soft, fresh, light, and not oily. So we went back for more to bring home for our other sons and neighbor.
And this is what it looks like "half eaten."
And here's a pix of Cheryl (Life is Sweet) and me (on the right...I take junk pix...LOL). So glad I got a chance to meet her and chat for a bit.
Thanks for popping in. Hope you HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY.
