Stamp n' Scrap Hawaii's Color Challenge...

Good morning and happy "Aloha" Friday! Another "challenge" is going on at SSH. For more details, be sure to pop on over and check it out. To give you a little hint, it's all about "Color". I love, love, love the color purple and...that is why I chose to use it for this week's challenge. Here is a card created using "Santa Brigitta" from CC Designs. Again, one of several new images, just recently arrived at Little C's.

On Brigitta's outfit, a combination of Fun Flock and Puffy Paint were used to add some dimension. I also added some purple stickles to her wings but, in all really didn't turn out, the way I expected. So...there will not be any close up shots (lol). As for the coloring, SU markers were used.

Hope you'll join on in, on this week's challenge. Till then, thank you for stopping in and have a very blessed weekend. Aloha and God bless~

Merry Christmas...from CC Designs "Nora"

Good morning all and hope your Thursday is off to a great start. Here I have for you, a Christmas greeting from CC Designs "Nora in Winter Coat". She's one of several new images, recently arrived at Little C's.

As you can slightly see, stickles were added to the tiny snowflakes, giving it a little glitz. For a fuzzy look, "Fun Flock" was used on Nora's coat, boots, and scarf. The holiday flower, along with the primas, are items also available at Little C's. IRL, the holiday flower is so pretty. If only I'd gotten a better photo shot.
As always, I appreciate your visit. Thank you so much for stopping in. Have a wonderful day...Aloha and God bless~

Never Forget...Pearl Harbor!

Aloha all! Today, 68 years ago, was the day of America's entrance into WWII. I cannot express how much gratitude I have, for the great sacrifices given (by military and civilians), during that time. I cannot express how much gratitude I have for those whom continue to fight for our great country and, for the "freedom" that did not come cheap. Thank you to allllllllll of our veterans (past, present, & future)!

Here is a card that I just recently finished and posted on SSH. I was definitely feeling patriotic and what better time to share it than on a day that we honor, here in Hawaii...Dec. 7 Pearl Harbor.
The image used is from The Greeting Farm's set..."Rain, Snow, Shine", which was purchased from Little C's. In addition, the embellishments used, such as the DS ribbons, prima flowers, and buttons, are other items that may also be purchased from Little C's.
Be sure to pop on over to Little C's to start your early Christmas shopping. Jen's got some new arrivals, that are sure not to last. Cute, cute stamps from CC Designs. Gotta have those stamps!

Thank you for stopping by and blessing me with your visit. Have a very blessed day and Aloha~

Stamp n' Scrap Hawaii's Challenge...Animals, Animals, Animals!

It's Aloha Friday and you know what that means!?! It's challenge time over at SSH and this time it's all about them cute animals. For this week's challenge, I chose to use Whiff of Joy's "Henry Mouse w/ Large Teacup n' Marshmallow". He is just too cute and at Little C's, they carry several different images of Henry Mouse. Lots of great choices to select from. If you haven't done so by now, pop on over and pay Jen a visit. She would love it!

On this card, it was all about coloring and layering. Nothing too difficult, just fun.
Be sure to check out what the rest of SSH's DT has done with the animals of their choice.
Hope you will join us and we look forward to seeing your entry into this week's challenge. Till then...May you have a safe and blessed weekend in Jesus! Aloha and God bless~

The Greeting Farm Edward...

Hope you all are having a wonderful Thursday. I have so much to catch up with in blogging, so many emails to respond to and...behind in lots of postings. I need to be better at this (lol). Thank you to those who have been so faithful and encouraging. You are truly the greatest!

Here is a card I created with much simplicity. I couldn't decide on the finishing touches nor the type of card I actually wanted to make. So I left plenty of space to add on, at a later date.

This image of Edward from The Greeting Farm was actually given to me as an image swap however, if you're in need of some great stamps from The Greeting Farm, check out what Little C's has available. Very cool stuff. Edward was colored, using SU markers. DS paper, ribbon and dew drops are items that can also be purchased at Little C's.

Thank you so much for stopping by. As always, I appreciate you. Aloha and God bless!

Stamp n' Scrap Hawaii's Featured "Aloha" Blogger

A big congratulations to Kyoko, for being SSH's Featured "Aloha" Blogger of the week. As I visit Kyoko's blog "Cards and Tags Mania", I cannot help but smile. She is so funny and it never fails to amaze me of how entertained I feel, while visiting her. It does not surprise me as to "why" her blog is full of RAKS both sent and received. As I would say...very loved and "blessed".

I was inspired as I came across Kyoko's Post-It Note Holders and decided to make one for someone whom is very close to my family. Because I decorated the front of the acrylic holder, I decided to use a solid color in the background. Omgosh the white crinkled paper is really gorgeous. Believe it or not, it is totally "handmade" paper. As natural, as paper can get.

The paper, the green fern leaves, the green squares with the white hearts, the orange flowers, the crimped tan paper, and the twine...ALL NATURAL! They are all part of the "All Natural Accents" line, which Little C's is very big on stocking. The only embellishment on this frame that is not natural, is the large prima flower.

This was actually a fun and quick project to put together. The hardest part, I would have to say, was the layout. That goes to show, how easy it was.

Well as always, I appreciate you stopping in. Have a very blessed day and Mahalo!
