May Day is Lei Day!


Happy Tuesday everyone!
Well, it's about time that I got organized and started posting regularly to my blog again.
I have had some setbacks, including a new wireless printer that no longer syncs to my laptop!
I have been digi-less for a while now and am sooo sad. 
But enough of that, because I still have plenty of rubber stamps to last me a while. ;)

Here is a card I made, belated, for Raise The Bar's newest challenge.
In Hawaii, today (May 1st) is also called LEI DAY.
RTB is celebrating this tradition with any floral/tropical creation!
In Hawaii when I grew up, they had school ceremonies where students are crowned 
as May Day Prince and Princesses, complete with lei, flowers, gowns, and a program.
It's such a beautiful time to celebrate Hawaiian tradition!

For my card I used my Cheeky Beach (because she epitomizes Hawaiian lifestyle), 
as well as some Recollections hibiscus paper (7 for $1 at Michaels, love that).

And to pay homage to the Farm, I played along with their current Farm Fresh Friday sketch:


{*sniff sniff* I surely do miss the Farm. lol!}

So come on over and play along with these fun challenges!

Have a beautiful Tuesday everyone, Iz man and I are off to a playdate with some friends!
