Mele Kalikimaka !

Hi friends!

By the time this posts,
I'll already be on a wonderful getaway with my hubby ♥
25 years ago (in April)  we said "I do!"
and honeymooned in Hawaii for 3 GLORIOUS weeks ~
and those memories are etched forever in my mind and heart!

Except the last time we were in Hawaii,
I packed a bikini!
Guess what WILL NOT be in the suit case this weekend?!
hee hee!

Today I'm sharing a card for the Splitcoaststampers inspiration site.
You can see the fun challenge site from today
here on Splitcoaststampers and I''ll share a little bit about my card!
I used these gorgeous coasters as a springboard
(and I'm pretty sure I'll be ordering these before I get home!) 

 For my card,
I've used Flamingo Bells from Avery Elle Stamps and dies
I've had this set for a good while and didn't get to use it until this week.
Sometimes stamping is fun like that!

I stamped/die cut the images and the popped them up
onto the card which is stenciled lightly for a bit of 'drama' :)

Wishing you a WONDERFUL weekend!
Big hugs, bigger blessings! ♥
