SCS Sketch Challenge 142

Ok, this was not completely easy to do. Well, let me back up a bit. We have another (and possibly final!) visitor staying with us who just arrived today. Now it's all fine and dandy to play hostess, cook for extra people, drive them around the island, go to a luau for the UMPteenth time (I know, wah-wah, right? They are really cool and a MUST if you visit Hawaii, but 7 in 2 1/2 yrs is more than enough to catch the *aloha* spirit), pack lunches for everyone when we go to the beach ~ wait, did I say having visitors was *fine and dandy*?? HA! Back to my point ~ yes, there is a reason for the blabbing ~ when friends/family come to visit they sleep in MY STAMPIN' ROOM! So, tonight my hubby took our guest, his buddy, out for a *few* to catch up, so I decided to drag some things to my bedroom so I could work on the challenge. Point being, it's rather difficult to stamp/cut/measure sprawled out on your bedroom floor! But after all that trouble ~ and running back and forth from my bedroom to my stamp room because I forgot this, that and the other ~ I'm rather happy with this card! I have to thank my fellow stalker/friend, Faith, for the inspiration on the hardware and sentiment. I never would've thought it was *ok* to adhere things ON TOP of the hardware ~ whoda thunk it??? And I also took a cue from Beate and used my All In a Row for my faux stitching. Ok, I think this is enough jabbering for one night, whatcha think??

This card is so well done, I didn't even realize it was the Baroque set until I read your credits!

This is gorgeous! I lvoe the colors and the polka dotted paper is my fav! Soo sorry your stamp room was invaded! YOu will soon be in TX and no one will want to come and visit, and then there will even be a time when you will miss those darn Luau's! Happy stamping and great job on day 2 of your blog!!!
