You are invited to share with me the Joy there is in creating Art. I mean the "I can do it" and "it's fun" and "it's beautiful" kind of art, whether it is "museum quality" or not. Here you will find some of what I like to do and, I hope, share some of your joy, too.

Welcome to my blog, Rae Ann.

An Unusual Christmas Card for DL.ART's Linky Party & Go Fish Challenge

My chiropractor loves Hawaii so I made this card especially for him.

I used an accessory key in Cricut's Paper Doll Dress-up cartridge to make the palm tree.  I cut it once in each color and pieced it: sand, trunk, and foliage.  Around the trunk are colored lights from the 'Deck the Halls' page in the 3 Birds on Parade cartridge.  I cut it at 2 inches to get the lights small enough.  Of course, the little hula bear is from the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge.  She's on a home-made wobble so she can really hula.  Luckily, the internet provided the correct spelling for 'Merry Christmas' in Hawaiian.  I'm tickled with it.

Please go to DL.ART and Go Fish Challenge Blog to see more entries.

Happy holidays and happy creating.

  2. Visiting from DLART Linky Party. Like the Hawaiian creation. Especially like the use of the wobble. Reminds me of the enjoyable times I had in O'ahu this past Mar when I went for a beach wedding of my hubby's youngest brother's 2nd oldest daughter.

  3. This is really cute I almost thought it was from the teddy bear parade cart that everyone is making cards from . It is good to know I can go to PDDU for a bear. Love your card the palm tree is nice and so are all your colors they really give the island feel.
