Tropical Window

Here's a Tropical Party card to show you today.  This one was inspired by a sway card I received from a fellow demonstrator, Gayle (I'm sorry, I don't know her last name).  She's one of my upline's sideline. My upline only has one downline (me) so I join in their swaps with my upline's upline and sideline.  (Wow, that's a mouth full!)  Back to the card...  Working a full-time job sometimes makes me feel like my short 4 day weekends just are never enough to get rested and rejuvenated.  So I find myself dreaming of a Hawaiian vacation while I sit in my lovely windowless cubicle.  Gayle's card inspired me to make a window looking out to the beautiful tropical paradise just beyond my reach. 

The coconut represents the little taste of paradise within my reach. What's in the coconut you ask?  Hmmm... a nice blended strawberry peach smoothie with a hint of pineapple juice perhaps.  Oh that sounds SOOO GOOD especially in this heat!

What would YOU have in your coconut?  Leave a comment below!

  4. So pretty! Thank you for sharing! I am one of your followers from Stampin' Connection. (I'm the one that started the Follow Me thread) I have a small favor to ask, please. I had to switch over my website (it used to be BellevueStampingClub) and lost all of my followers from SC. Would you be so kind as to go to my new site listed below and RE-follow me, please? You may have to copy and paste the link. Thanks so much! I really appreciate it!
