Hawaiian Shores color

Got my PTI order (did it seem a bit longer than usual to you?) and immediately had to make a card with the new color.  I just love this color and it works very well with so many of the other PTI colors.  Since the order included the new rick rack die, BBII die I and felt, I thought it appropriate to include these tools in making the card.  Very easy and quick... I did not give it hours of thought seeing as it was 10:00 at night and I had worked all day.  Included is a small strip of the new patterned paper as well.  The sentiment is from Delightful Dahlia and I just love the font used in this set... so classic.

Next on my list is a Mother's Day card for my Step Mother... always hard to do as she married my father when I was in my late 30's, more than 10 years after the death of my mom, so she didn't raise me.  Do you realize how many Mother's Day cards say things like "you were always there for me"....  Ummm, no.  I was long out of the house.  I do appreciate her being my dad's wife, especially in his final years.  So.  I need to come up with a card that says I appreciate her but she really never had the role of my mother.  Ahhh, life.  This should be the hardest card I have to do!  Sympathy cards are always harder.

On to Hawaiian Shores lusciousness...
Hope you like it!

Very nice! It took me 10 days to get my order this month that is the longest it has ever taken. I am loving the new HS color too!

Gosh....I love the BBII flowers. And the felt looks beautiful. Hopefully my package isn't stuck at Dutch customs too long. I WANT to play with the BBII dies and stamps.
