Isn't it though?! Life is such a blessing and through all of lifes ups and downs, the trials and all the unknowns, I've found that my sweet friends have really been much of what keeps me grounded, and keeps me going!
Of all the travels dh and I have taken, Hawaii was definitely one of our favorite trips - and the pictures of the flowers are still fresh in my mind :) I'm also blessed to have one of the most beautiful hibiscus plants growing in my garden, planted as a memorial tree for my dad. It's grown from 12" tall to over 7' now and the blooms are so beautiful and fragrant! And what an inspiration for making this card!
I was aiming for a postcard look using The Sweetest Flower ~ I really wanted this gorgeous digi image to stand alone when out of it's card - I think this is a Criss-Cross fold (been awhile since I made one of these!) and used my Green at Heart Basic Grey papers.
Mahalo for stopping by today! And dont' forget to head over to the CDAC and check out the all-day long Luau going on!
And, for an added bonus, for the month of July only, Deedee is offering a limited-edition, gift-with-purchase digi! How cool is that!

What a GORGEOUS card Kelly! Love the paper you used on the criss cross and the color of the hibiscus is beautiful! Aren't we so lucky that they grow here in Florida! Of all of trips we have taken, Hawaii is probably our most memorable one too, not only for the flowers but the pineapple too.
