Happy Birthday Card with Crane

Hope you're all having a great weekend. Hooray, it's a holiday tomorrow. Yikes, I need to sew new bedroom curtains for my son. Hope I can whip thru that so I can play with my rubber stamps again.

The blue background on this card is embossed and hopefully you can see it when you zoom in by clicking on the picture.

Bird in Circle

This past weekend I stopped by Island Scrapbooking. Michele brought in A LOT of neat Martha Stewart punches. I must've been checking them out for at least 15 minutes trying to decide which one to buy. There were just too many to choose from.....decisions, decisions. Finally, I chose this lace punch.

Pearls accent the lace and flowers. It's a bit hard to see but if you zoom in, you'll be able to see them.

Happy Cat

Hope you had a very nice weekend. I sure did. Yesterday, I had lunch with my friends and we ate at 1-Plus-1 Restaurant. The first time I ate there, I had their Special Mein Noodles. Ummmm, it was sooooo yummy. Well, this was the 3rd time I went there and the 3rd time I ordered the same thing. I'm a "noodle" person for sure. It's so hard for me to try something new once I hit on a great dish. LOL.

This image really resembles our cat. She's extremely mellow, super tame, very affectionate, has a "squeaky" meow, and forever cute.

"Lucy and Kitty" Card

TGIF!!! Hope you all had a great week.

Last weekend I made a dash over to Island Scrapbooking (Hilo) because my friend Jenny told me Michele brought in some pretty floral embellishments. I've been hunting for these and am so glad she had a nice assortment of vibrant colors.

This is one of the few stamps I got from Munchkins in Mililani. Cute yah?

I'm still a novice with the Copic markers so please don't look too close. LOL.

Reminder......another BLOG CANDY GIVEAWAY will be posted sometime in June so please stop by to check it out.

Hope you all have a G-R-E-A-T weekend.

Creative Crafts at Our FCE Fair

The annual FCE Fair was held today and here are some of the goodies our crafty club members made. In case you're wondering, FCE stands for Family and Community Education.
These are a few of the beautiful ribbon leis Ella made. Such patience.

We had an assortment of yummy baked goods such as pizelles, mochi, Chinese pretzels, a variety of cookies, etc.

Ohhh, and check out these Caramel Apples. Almost too nice to eat. That went out FAST.

Jenny made a bunch of super cute memo holder. She's so unbelievably talented.

We had a variety of hand-made cards too that both Jenny and I made.

Here's more.

This was our club project. They are Post It holders on clear acrylic photo frames decorated with cute wooden embellishments and a motivational quote. That sold out.

"Belated Birthday"/ Mother's Day Blog Candy Giveaway

My wonderful hubby took me to Las Vegas for my birthday a couple of weeks ago and it was the BEST birthday I ever had. We basically, shopped till be dropped, ate to our hearts content (Alsakan King Crab Legs at Redwood Bar and Grill, lunch buffet at Makino Chaya, etc.), and did a little bit of gambling. I'm not a gambler so shopping was the highlight for me.

About a week before our trip we checked the internet to see what kind of weather we should expect. It was similar to Hawaii, about 80 degrees high and low in the 60's.....perfect. Ohhhh, but Mother Nature tricked us. The high one day was in the mid-40's and another about mid-50's. BURRRR. I think she must be going thru menopause. Ha-ha.

That's OK because when we went to JoAnn's EVERY scrapbooking item was 40% off. I had no idea there was a sale....sheer luck for me. CHA-CHING, I hit the jackpot there. Forget the slots. LOL.

My hubby also took me to Las Vegastamps and Michael's in Vegas. When we returned to Oahu, I managed to literally squeeze in a super-duper quick trip to Munchkins in Mililani. It was a whirlwind trip but FUN!!!

Okie dokie, so now I'd like to announce my very first blog candy giveaway. They are "goodies" I bought during our trip.

FAIRY STAMP SET by Inkadinkado (8 clear stamps)

ASIAN BUTTERFULY STAMP by Hero Arts (Please note that I used this image on one of my
earlier post, but the one I'm giving away is brand new)

SQUARE STACK by Colorbox (there are 4 sets of muticolor squares. Includes deckled, wavy, pinking, and straight)
