Happy Hump Day Wednesday

Hey guys & gals,

I have been MIA for a long time now and decide to share some sweet "thank you" cards I had made for a friend. Nothing special, but I was able to incorporate some old TGF stamps and I have been wanting to put those cute adorable stamps into good use.

First thank you card...I used this cute little hula girl which I have always adored.
I used a decorative background paper which I have been waiting to use forever now... Love how the background does so much for the card. I had lots of fun, very simple yet looks like hard work! Stamped the flower on colored paper, copiced the middle to add a little shadowing and cut them out. And of course I needed to add a little sparkle in the middle...used a cute Mahalo saying and there you go!

For some reason when coloring the two images for my cards, I had some what picked out very similar colors schemes and here it is...Another TGF classic.

I copiced her entirely, paper pieced her head piece and add a little sparkle. Very simple card, used different borders and angles of the paper to create this. Used the stamp image tag from Stamping up.

Hope you enjoyed them! I will be putting up more pics soon of my holiday creations :D!!!
