Merry Monday 22 - Guest Designer

Hi! 

It's Memorial Day in the US, and it's a wonderful time to reflect and pay tribute to those who have served and sacrificed. 

I was so delighted to be asked by Lesley to guest design with her and the Merry Makers this week for the Merry Monday challenge. As I have stated before, her sketches make it easy to create and no interference with mojo. You got to love that!

I went for fun and non-traditional this week! I think it's all the Tropical Christmas' living in Hawaii or the kick start to summer weather we are having, but here is my card for this week's Merry Monday Challenge.

I used Wilson Designs : Snowy Wishes.  I added lots of pink bling to the hula snowlady's arms. I created a cute little hula skirt to compliment her shell top! I had some various tropical papers from a local scrapbook store in Hawaii and they coordinated nicely with some Stampin' UP! papers from last year. 

Here is the fabulous sketch by Lesley! I hope you will join in and play along!

I am a warm and tropical kinda girl, so I loved my warm winters in Hawaii, and I hope you enjoyed my tropical Christmas card today! Don't forget to visit the rest of the Merry Makers for some inspiration!
Have a great start to your week!
~Tammy~

Oh What a fun card Tammy! I love your snow wahine! LOL! My oldest grew up in Calif. When we moved back to Maui there was no snow on Haleakala that first year so we went to the beach and made sandman. That turned into a tradition that continued with my youngest son. Found memories.
Hugs
