A Blue Hawaiian Hello with Sale-A-Bration

[pinit]The military has  given me the gift of travel.  I’ve been around the world a few times to distant shores and all over the United States.  Places  abroad that would change the way you think, the way you eat,  and definitely appreciate your freedom.  But, the best place I never  get enough of is Hawaii.  I made this card before my trip without  realizing that the colors are a reflection of the beautiful Hawaiian colors.  I have a little over a week to go and will share with you my temporary duty assignment aka TDY adventures.   The crown reminds me of Kamehameha the Great… Hawaiian Islands first King.  Hope you enjoy this Sale-a-Bration sneak peak that starts Jan. 24th.

Beginning on Feb. 15th my virtual stamp club will debut.  Take a look at our catalogs on the right  and browse through the stamps you would love to see.  I will post details on Feb. 4th.  I’m so excited and can’t wait to share it with you.    In the meantime, Aloha  from Hawaii.

Happy Crafting,
Maggie

Saturday Sketch Challenge #237 with Sale-a-Bration Sneak Peaks

Being an active duty military member, I am only able to be a Hobby Stamper (for now), and therefore have to make cards a few days ahead of time.  This card is for one of my five brother’s who’s birthday will fall on a day while I’m way on temporary duty.  Since I won’t have access to my crafting supplies, I had to make it ahead of time.  Since becoming a Stampin Up demonstrator I started to dislike traveling because I love stamping so much I miss it when I’m away from home.  Next week I will be sent to Hawaii and I will not complain from not being able to get any stamping done.  I will not be able to post for the two weeks that I will be away enjoying paradise during off duty hours. =)  Needless to go on and on, I made this card for the Saturday Sketch Challenge #237 at Stamping 411.

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Patterns Stack (117157), Riding Hood Red (111348), Daffodil Delight (119683); Ink: Real Red (102482); Stamp Set: Sale-a-Bration (Jan. 24th) Fresh Vintage (Clear 125117); Tools: Stamp-a-ma-jig (101049); Envelope: Whisper White 5 3/4 x 4 3/8 (107301)

The sketch seemed like something I could handle at my level.  What do you guys think? =)
