Missing Hawaii

Just got back from a trip to Hawaii and already I want to go back. Hawaii is my favorite place to go on earth and will forever hold a special place in my heart. Something about the islands just gives me instant calm and a sense of peace from the moment I get off the plane. I've been so looking forward to this trip, especially since my family met up with us and it was a family affair. 

I love early morning walks on the beach, catching the sunrise, dipping my feet on sandy beach waters, and just taking in the moment. Breathing in all the serenity of the place is just what I needed. Who wouldn't want to wake up to this every single day? 

I know I've just returned but already planning on the next trip back, whenever that may be. 😝

So for today I'm sharing this card I made using La-La Land Crafts Ukulele Marci. Must be a retired stamp because I can't find it on their site anymore. 

Not a lot of dies used other than MFT's Wonky Stitched Circle Stax

Cupcake Princess Birthday Card

May is probably one of the busiest months in terms of creating cards or crafting. With a few friends of mine whose birthdays fall on May, Mother's Day, National Scrapbooking Day, it seems like May gets me to create more than usual.

Today I'm sharing a card I made, for a very good friend of mine who lives on the other side of the country. I miss her but feel very fortunate to be able to keep in touch with her on a regular basis. Card is in the mail already and hopefully she receives it in time for her birthday. It's also my National Scrapbooking Day creation for this year. The crown on Cupcake Princess Marci looks a bit dark but it's actually Tonic Studios gold glitter covering it. It did not picture well but I swear it sparkles! Not a crown if it doesn't right? The cupcake 'scepter' (I think that's what it is called?) is also covered with Tonic Studios pink glitter. 

If you follow me you know my love for La-La Land Crafts knows no bounds. 😀 Hope you like this one too. And to my good friend, advance Happy Birthday T!

Silhouette Thank You Card

Hi everyone! Here's my 2nd card that I made for Teacher's Appreciation Week. This time instead of stamping and coloring, I used my Silhouette to create this simple card. It's been a while since I made cards that did not require any stamping. 😁

Papers are from Close to My Heart, I used scrap papers mostly for the polka dots, and Chocolate (retired) for the base brown cardstock.

A Fairy Thank You

It's Teacher's Appreciation Week at school and for this year I made this card for my daughter's teacher.

Love how whimsical this looks and the added glitter to the fairy wings goes a long way. Can't see it much on the picture but it's there. Unfortunately I took the photo at night so lighting isn't at its best.

Stamp set is Lawn Fawn's Fairy Friends, and images are all colored with Copics.

Thank You Card

Hi everyone! Sharing another card today that was done previously. Made this for an old co-worker of mine who remember my birthday. I was so grateful that she took the time to buy me a birthday present, and it came at a time when I was feeling very low. To show my appreciation I made this card to let her know how grateful I was.

I used Rose Hat Marci. This stamp was last year June's La-La Land Club kit. Image was colored with Copics. Layout inspiration from Tamara

Coffee Break Marci Thank You Card

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing a card I made a couple of months back. I wanted to give someone who means a lot to me a card to show how much I appreciate our friendship. Because we both love coffee, this stamp from La-La Land seemed fitting. Image below colored using Copics.
