~* mele kalikimaka! *~


Hi Everyone!

Happy Aloha Friday! Wow, it's raining cats and dogs here!

Here's a card I made using the Making Memories Noel Collection. I used a The Greeting Farm stamped image. Paper pieced her hibiscus flower and her ukulele and colored her with my Copic markers. I used a Stampettes sentiment stamp and punched it out with my Stampin Up! window punch, matted it with another Stampin Up! punch and added two halfback pearls. I tied on some twine and added some vintage coconut shell buttons. Edged everything with Distress Ink.

I'm entering this card into:

-jingle belles JB10 - Home for the Holidays - being that I am from Hawaii, I thought it was fitting to have a local Hawaiian theme

-The Greeting Farm - Farm Fresh Friday Challenge - Christmas Scraps! - the challenge is to use up your Christmas stash...posted in the Greetingfarm Galleria

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely lovely day!!!
*hugs* and Much aloha to you~!
Steph :)

How very cute and fun this is, Steph! I love that you've mixed your local Hawaiian flavor into this Christmas card. Love that MM paper. Can you believe I bought the paper pad before Christmas and then never used any of it? Shame on me! Fun image. Love the paper pieced flower in her hair, and LOVE the vintage buttons.
Great job! Hope you have a great weekend!
