Happy Buddies

Hey Peeps, hope you all had a fun and fabulous weekend.   For those of you who live on the Big Island, did you feel the earthquake early this morning?  I was in the kitchen writing my market list when I was surprised with a short rumble followed by a big jolt then short rumble again.  My eyes popped and I said, "WHOA, AHHHH."  Hee-hee.  Glad all is fine.  

Here's a fun card I made last night.  The image is called "Buddies" by Sister Stamps.   Love these cute little guys.

Other fun items used:
Spellbinder dies
Grass die by Impression Obsession
Grass punch by Martha Stewart
Bamboo die by Joy Craft
"Party Lantern" die by Poppy Stamps from Island Scrapbooking
Butterfly button from stash
Pearl swirl by Prima from Island Scrapbooking
Turquoise pearls and green rhinestones by e.
Sentiment made on my computer
Ribbon from Stamps 'n Memories
