Coming on real quick today! My son was invited to a Hula Birthday Party at a neighbors. So I pulled out my beloved retired stamps that saw much use when I lived in Hawaii. I also found some papers in my stash that was purchased at a LSS when we lived there as well. It was just scraps, so I put to good use today. Times like these always proves why we hoard and not get rid of those things we rarely use! :-))))
I didn't have a lot of spare time, so I pulled some inspiration from the Mojo Monday Sketch this week. So here is my fun little card which is making me miss those warm sunny days with the beautiful trade winds.
I started with a bright and sunny yellow card base adding my layers of fun tropical prints. I created a tag and antiqued my edges and stamped my vintage Hula Girl in Tuxedo Black ink. I then colored her in with Prisma Pencils and Mineral Spirits. A length of pink ric-rac trim was added to the top for a decorative touch and some natural raffia ribbon was looped through and tied in a bow.
The sentiment is from Dandelion Designs (a company based in Hawaii) and a Hono (Turtle) image was stamped in kraft ink.
Hopefully our little Hula Birthday girl likes it!
I hope you have wonderful things planned for the weekend. We will be taking the short stack to an Open House at a Baseball Academy for food, fun, and baseball drills. He love loves loves baseball right now, so he is pretty excited.
Here is the Mojo Monday sketch I flipped.
I have to give a shout out to my friend Colleen who helped me get a better understanding of a photo program I have but I didn't know how to utilize. Still so much to learn....just need more hours in the day!
Hugs and Blessings!
