This week's challenge is to use a non-Christmas (non-winter) stamp.
I just got my new Anya and Ian stamps, so I wanted to play with them. Have you ever spent a Christmas in Hawaii? I was 8 when I was blessed with this experience. It was so odd and yet cool to me then. I mean, living in Portland and being young, who ever thought it could be 75 degrees and sunny on Christmas? And who goes to the beach to swim on Christmas? :) I also had a great lesson in exporting and importing goods. I remember my grandma paying $50 for a such a small Christmas tree that we could of gotten at home for $5.
Paper: My Minds Eye
Stamps: the Greeting Farm, CTMH Chocolate and Sans Alphabets
CTMH Buttons, Copics, and Crystal Stickles
All of my mom's side of the family was born and raised on the Big Island. I still have relatives there, so this card will get good use! :) My cousin Stefanie surfs too, so I bet she'd love this Ian.
