Hawaiian Birthday

Hey everyone!  If ever I needed to dream about warmer, sunnier weather it would be today.  It's March 15th and we are currently having a blizzard.  A blizzard!!  Apparently March is determined to go out like a lion.  Sigh.  Will winter never end?  Okay that's enough of my whining.  At least it's not as cold as it was.

Anyway, today's card is one that makes me think of a fun tropical vacation somewhere.  Like Hawaii!  I'd love to go to Hawaii.  It's one of the places my husband and I have on our travel bucket list.  :-). Here's my card...

So in used an old stamp by Stampcraft that has four different stamps on the same block.  I've always liked the Hawaiian shirt stamp.  I stamped it in four bright colours then fussy cut them out.  I took a square piece of white cardstock and scored lines on it.  I matted this With black and attached to my white card base.  I stamp the sentiment (STAMPlorations) in black.  Then I attached my shirts with some foam dots.  I think it turned out rather fun!  :-)

I'm linking up to the following challenges:

Time Out Challenge - inspiration picture below.  I was inspired by the brightly coloured frames and the white panel wall behind them.

CAS-ology - cue card is "Tropical"

Thanks so much for dropping by for a visit and I hope you have a fantastic day!


  1. Colorful, fun, and a great take on both challenges!

  2. Love how you scored the background paper to give it some extra dimension. It looks like a panelled wall. Great job fussy cutting those bright hawaiian shirts!

  3. Love your little Hawaiian shirts. They are too adorable. Love the colors you picked, too. Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology and I hope you come back next time. Also, I hope you and your DH can make it to Hawaii some day soon.

  4. Those shirts are so fun, Kim. They remind me of my brother who likes to wear Hawaiian shirts often.

  5. Love the cheery take in our photo, the scored bg is perfect. Fab shirts, so which one will you wear?? Thanks for joining Time Out

  6. Wait for me, I'm coming to Hawaii with you :) Love these cool shirts against the scored background. Perfect for Time Out, Kim....thanks so much for playing along!

  7. So happy, those Hawaiian shirts! Perfect guy card!
