Too funny!

I know this is not stamp related but I just had to share these pictures! Roxy and I went to my dh's work to swap cars and while we were waiting for dh, I looked over at her and saw her sitting like a human! I couldn't stop laughing! And before you ask, no, she's not in a car seat, she has a harness that has a seatbelt attached to it. Enjoy!

Surfer Ian - 09 Father's Day Card SP

I'm not feelin' this card! It's OK but it's not the greatest. I'm thinking its a bit busy. I wanted this to be for my FIL's Father's Day card...but since I'm not too happy with it. So we'll have to see. Don't you just hate it when you an idea in your head and it doesn't turn out that way? So I'm a bit frustrated but I'll post this anyways.

Decided to make this Post it Note Holder for the niece to match her purse and card.

Another Hula Anya Card

Needed to make another simple card. I couldn't send my friend a package without a card and since I'm sending her some treats, I wanted to use the Hula Anya for my card! I so think this stamp is perfect for those goodie packages filled with Aloha treats to my friends and relatives. TFL!

E komo mai (Welcome!) I just love this Hula Anya! Seriously Marie from TGF just can't go wrong in her designs! I hope I never get tired of my TGF stamps!!! Isn't she adorable? Anyhow, I used the same LO for Marie's challenge at TGF. I didn't enter, didn't have time. This is actually my second card. The first card has the same exact LO however, I used a busy background and the whole card just looked way too busy! So this is what I'm going with, will send the other to my non-stamping friends that are happy with anything I make!! LOL! Poor friends! Don't get me wrong, I like the other card but I'm just into simplicity when it comes to my card. Anyhow thanks for stopping by!

A hui hou (Till we meet again)!

It's an Anniversary!

Made this card for my in-laws. It's late...sad to say I've fallen behind after doing so well with sending presents and cards (*o*) Seriously don't know why I'm laggin'! The card is a VERY simple card (my MIL does not like fancy-dancy). Believe it or not, I started this card the other night and I totally took a 180 turn from my original idea. You'd think if it took me that long to create it would have been spectacular...but it's not..its simple...but then again, that's how I like it (^o^). And yes for those of you that recognize the paper it's the Imaginicse paper Fairest of them All. I'm seriously trying to use up my tons! Anyhow thanks for stopping by! Happy Aloha Friday!

Rockstar Anya Purse

A purse I made for my dh's niece for her 11th bday. I decided to make a purse just to be different. Inside are a coordinating card and gift card. I choose Rockstar Anya because she is so not a girlie-girl. She's into Guitar Hero and I thought Rockstar Anya was perfect for her. TFS!

This is the front of the purse

And here's the backside of it.

Digi LO

Aloha! I was in the mood to do a LO since I haven't done one in sooo long! No journaling on here as I have yet to figure out what I'm gonna write about. Simple LO, but most of my LOs are. This is of me and my brother posing in front of the Hospital where our little sister was born (Margarita and Liann both gave birth here also!) and the place where Margarita (Ninette, I'm not sure if you did dance at the hospital but I think you did...correct me if I'm wrong) and I both preformed...I know weird but they had us perform for the patients and staff. Anyhow, I know it's nothing to most, but for me and my brother we were so excited just to be there!! LOL! TFL!

Jealous of Jen!

LOL! Seriously I am jealous of Jen of Jenny's Creations! She recently visited Japan and even though I was just there this past Dec, I still wished I was there last week too! LOL! Anyhow, looking at Jen's pictures reminding me of the missing piece in my heart (how dramatic am I? LOL) so I decided to share a few of my Japan pictures here on my Stampin' blog. I promise this won't be something I'll post often but just wanted to share a part of me that I don't often do on this blog. Enjoy, hope that all that visits my blog who have never been to Japan thing about visiting. Japan is truly a beautiful place!

Cherry Blossoms at one of the Temple grounds.

The Great Buddah at Kamakura (not far from where I grew up)

I'll post more pics when I have time...but for now since I haven't updated the blog I'll go ahead and post what I have... Thanks for stopping by!

Mother's Day Card

I know you're a bit surprised but yes, I do own other stamps besides TGF stamps...LOL! Altho I have to say they are by far my favorite stamps right now! But with today's cards, I decided to use one of my favorite SU! stamps for my Mother's Day Cards. This card was totally lifted from Chat of Me, Myself and I. It's exactly the same except for the color. I just love her style and loved how she used the Eastern Blossom set. I think I may lift more cards from her because her work is absolutely gorgeous! If you haven't seen her work check it out!

CS: SU! Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip. Memories Kraft
Ink: SU! Close to Cocoa and Baja Breeze
Stamp: SU! Eastern Blossom
Ribbon: SU! Baja Breeze
MISC: SU! Large Oval Punch and Scallop Oval Punch, SU! Mat Pack, Dew Drops and Liquid Pearl - Baby Blue.

On a side note, I wanted to address a couple of questions I got via email regarding the Hula Sweeties.
1. If you would like a Hula Sweetie, look on the right hand side where the Sweetie preview is and pick a Sweetie you'd like to be dressed in a Hula outfit. Then email me of your choice.
2. Hula Sweetie number 2 (below) is not for sale as that is my personal Sweetie.
3. If interested in a Sweetie whether it be a Hula Sweetie or regular Sweetie email me your choice - pick the Sweetie to the corresponding number (I can change hair or clothing color if you'd like). I will then send you a Paypal invoice for payment of $5, once payment has been received I will then send you the Sweetie file in .png and .tiff file.
4. For those that has already purchased a Sweetie from me and would like the .tiff file please email me.

Hawaiian Sweeties

A while back Liann from CrEaTiNg WiTh AloHa asked me if I can make her a Hula Sweetie...I decided to make a few of the Sweeties with a hula skirt. Here's what I came up with, let me know what you think.
