Warm Wishes & an Award


I made this card for my blog buddies who had June birthdays. (As a side, I actually sent these cards out on time; I just did not want to post this before they arrived at their destinations!) I know this set is retired, but it is new to me! I just *had* to have that palm tree!!

Stamps: Balmy Breezes, Hugs & Wishes (SU)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Brocade Blue, Naturals Ivory, Always Artichoke, Always Artichoke DSP (thaks Gale!)
Ink: Chocolate Chip, SU Markers in Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Brocade Blue, & Always Artichoke
Accessories: Chocolate Rafia (Mikes), Brads, dimensionals

The blogging world continues to amaze me. I have "met" the neatest people by simply blog hopping, leaving a comment, and then getting someone in return who visits me! Martha Kay is one of those gals and I am grateful she thought of me when passing this award on! Domo Arigato, Martha Kay!!


I would like to pass this along to:

    Thank you for taking a peek into my world today!
