"Aloha"




This little greeting means Hello in Hawaiian and I have coloured
my beautiful Hawaiian Tilda to match the Just Magnolia Challenge
this week which is to use the colours Pink and Green. Don't you
think she looks fab doing her Hula dance? I was lucky enough
to get married in Hawaii and if I can find an old piccie I will pop
it on next week! I am in a bit of a rush this morning as we are
meeting a friend who is running in the London Marathon today
so we need to set off pretty soon! I really do admire these people
it takes a lot of self discipline and hard work! and lots of pasta!!!
I will take my camera along and hopefully get some good pictures.
So getting back to my card! I have coloured her using my water
colour palette, the Palm tree was made from punched hearts and
two different sized leaves which came with some flowers I bought
(which are in an organised jar now) so who knows the name! Sorry!
I have sewn two buttons on for the coconuts (Pink and Green of
course)! Papers are from K & Co and Lasting Impressions.
The sentiment is computer generated, the leaves around
the outside of Tilda are another filigree stamp from the Laura Ashley
Connemara set. Flower brad DC. As this is quite a simple card it
also meets the challenge over on the ABC Challenge Blog Woohoo!
Think that's all, have a fab Sunday everyone and happy crafting. Sue xx
