Christmas Joy

Hey Peeps!   OMG, can't believe Christmas is 3 weeks away.  Where did the time go?

Creating this snowy holiday scene with these cute little critters was lots of fun.   I'm thankful that the only snow we get here on the Big Island is on Mauna Kea and sometimes on Mauna Loa and can enjoy the beautiful view from a lower elevation.  

This is the inside of the card.

Our theme for the July/August Secret Sister Swap was "boys."  That's usually a challenge for me because I love to make cutsie cards.  Then the light bulb went on....yah....gotta use Yoichi by Sister Stamps.  So I came up with this card for for Cyndi.   As you can tell, I'm not great with sorry, the pix is a bit overexposed.  Oops, forgot to take pix of the RAK I sent to her too....dang.  :-)

Life's a Beach

Woo-hoo, TGIF and happy it's a holiday!

This has got to be one of the easiest cards I've ever made.  Using one of the beautiful digital paper exclusively from Island Scrapbooking, I cut a section to fit a 5" x 7" card, added Anuhea and Halia by Sister Stamps, and the laser cut sentiment, also by Island Scrapbooking.

This is a pix of the full sheet.   To see more of her new digital paper, click here.

June Secret Sister Swap

When I received Kathy's "theme" for the June swap, I must say I was super excited because she sent us a picture and all we had to do was use at least 2 colors from the picture and it didn't have to be the exact hue. Coincidentally, I had just finished making a card and it had a bunch of colors that were in her picture.  I was like, "YAH!!!!!!!"   I was Patty's secret sister and this is the card I sent to her with a few RAKs.

This is the picture Kathy sent.   Ohhh, lots of colors.

And Kathy was my secret sister.  She made this super cute card that reminds me of our family trip to Oregon many, many years ago.  Oh, I can still remember Crater Lake, so beautiful.  Kathy also sent me so awesome RAKs too and I know I'll have a lot of fun with them.  THANK YOU SO MUCH KATHY!!!!!

Thanks for much for stopping by and have a fabulous and crafty weekend.

Here is the card Lynn made and sent with the goodies.  Isn't it pretty?  Love the sparkle and pretty rose DP.

Wishing You TONS of Fun

These baby elephants have got to be the CUTEST EVER.  I'm really not a big fan of elephants but when I set eyes on these babies, I knew it was a must-have.   This is one of the samples I made for Island Scrapbooking.  Did you hear??? The store moved to a new location at 578 Hinano St., Ste. 105, just 5 minutes from the Hilo airport with LOTS of parking and 2 popular restaurants just steps away.  For you visitors who more than likely will shop at Big Island Candies (a popular tourist place), Island Scrapbooking is just across the street.  PRIME location!!!!

Thank You Cards

Sharing the last 2 sets of cards I made for my friend to sell to help pay for her medical expenses.  Though it isn't much, I hope it helped her a little bit.

:Ling Ling is one of my favorite panda images.  Another cutie by Sister Stamps.   The best part is just having to use only one color to ink him up.  LOL.

Finally, here's a CAS thank-you card using the"Prim Poppy" die by Memory Box.  The "thanks" sentiment is by Memory Box as well and I used the mirror paper to give it some shimmer.  Also, used glitter paper for the flowers for sparkle.  For texture, I used an embossing folder by Darice and to top it off, added a little butterfly using a punch by EK.
