Hello from Hawaii

Aloha My Friends! Ian and Anya send you warm hello from their Hawaiian vacation. How lucky they are! And they are having real fun!

Hula Anya

Hula Anya

Anya seems to like her hula dance under the palm tree.  Since I started to talk about the palms, let me tell that I am not an artist, but tried my best in my drawing skills. This card is created for the Case of the Curious Card Challenge at The Greeting Farm blog. I changed a bit one detail on the card when I was ready to post it here. Don’t be surprised that this card is a little bit different than at Marie’s blog.

Ian Surfer

Ian Surfer

I was talking too much about Anya and almost forgot about cool Surfer Ian. He is ready to catch another wave! Look how great he is in his surfing skills. This card would not be made without visiting beautiful blog by Mary Jo Albright. Thank you for the inspiration!

I really had a great time at my virtual Hawaii Island. But this dream would never come true without several magical tools: papers, scissors, and pencils. “Dream Big” I would say again and who knows maybe soon I will have real pictures of me in hula skirt! Just joking!

 Thank you for stopping by today and spending some time in a Dream Land!

    Elena, you did an incredible job with these cards and with taking us on a virtual trip to Hawaii! Both of these cards capture the essence of a breathtaking, warm beach get-a-way. I hope you get to go there! These are super fun CASES too. I’m so glad you did the surfer Ian one because I wouldn’t have seen that card technique otherwise (cute paper to work with, right?). Love these cards!
