I really enjoy meeting new people and it seems that I always meet my best-est friends over the phone! While on vacation I got to know my landlord...Cathy...and she is amazing! We are so much alike...she is one of those people that you can talk to for hours about anything and everything. And guess what? She's a stamper too! Now she hasn't been stamping for some time, but nevertheless she is a sister of paper! Every time I go somewhere I pick up a special stamp and this time it was this great Hula Girl stamp and I instantly knew what I was gonna do with it.
A card box with 6 Mahalo cards (thank you) in it for Cathy. I thought the box would be a great keepsake of our new friendship made in Hawaii. Now, Cathy lives in Canada and her birthday was last Friday and she's in New York to celebrate...so I put it in the mail the other day so it will arrive right after she gets home!
Don't worry...Cathy doesn't know my about blog yet, but she will when she gets her special gift.
I think this is one of the prettiest hula girl stamps I've ever found and its truly special because it reminds me of our wonderful trip and a new friend every time I see it in my craft room.
I colored her with copic markers...added some orange, yellow, and green stickles....stickles are so much fun! The sand is this really cool stuff called Malibu Beach by MuddPuddles and it rocks.....sand and some kind of glue and when it dries it adds such dimension to your project. Found this in Hawaii too!
The paper is from Graphic 45.
Here are a few more views...notice the stickles on the flowers on top of the box too?
I can't wait for Cathy to get home.
Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by. Stay inky my friends.
