NAYA!!!!! Naya, you win the Max stamp!!! Just email your address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and Max will be on his way to his new home!!!! Thanks to all who entered...sounds like a lot of you just took it easy on the 4th with family and friends...that's always nice!! My family and I braved the crowds at Ala Moana to see the fireworks up close (it's been awhile since we've done that!!). It was just beautiful, especially at the end when they went wild and started releasing tons of fireworks at once!!! Thanks also to the wacky few who answered my dog question...too funny!!!
Now on to business...I wanted to show you another card using "Maddy at the Beach". (Because I never did get a chance to give her away!!).
I used my exacto knife to cut out a "lei-shaped" opening in the front of the card. Then I stamped a bunch of flowers using stamps #4003 (Flower Power) and #4004 (Mini Flower Power). I cut out each flower (I know...even I regretted it after I started...but, I think it's worth the effort in the end), and filled them in with different colored glitter glues. I glued all the flowers around the edge of the opening...putting glue just in the center of each flower and curling the petals up. Then I stamped #4008 (Love From Hawaii) and B101 (Maddy at the Beach) on the inside (centered in the middle of the lei opening).
Ok...time for the giveaway. If you would like to win a "Maddy at the Beach" stamp, leave a post by the end of tomorrow, Sunday July 6 (Hawaii time) and tell me what your favorite beach or swimming spot is. I'll pick one entry at random and announce the winner on Monday July 7. Enjoy the rest of your long weekend!!!
