A warm ALOHA!

Happy Aloha Friday! Just sharing a card using one of the newer stamps from The Greeting Farm--Surfer Anya. Isn't she a cutie? She and Surfer Ian are such a cute couple, too.


I colored her with Copics, trimmed her out and used some corrugated paper and kraft cardstock for a little beach scene. The background is Hero Arts' Raindrop Background, stamped with Frayed Burlap distress ink. The sun die is from My Favorite Things, and I added lots of buttons for color and fun. The sentiment was made with Harold's ABCs from Lawn Fawn.

The Greeting Farm is once again sponsoring Cards for a Cause for 2011. This year, cards are being sent to some students in Japan who could use some cheering up after the horrific earthquake/tsunami in March.

You can read about the card drive here. I'm planning to color a bunch of Surfer Anyas and Ians and spread some ALOHA all the way to Japan!

Thanks for visiting today! Please join me tomorrow for another Tiffany Doodles challenge.

Hope you have a great weekend...
