Aloha PinUp...

The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever. -Jacques Yves Cousteau I tried stamping this weekend on my stamp retreat and didn't get much done. LOL :) Too much chatting, partying and movie watching. I did work in a quick card for this week's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. I grabbed the orange (used a coral color) and the big brown bow for my inspiration. I used a Cricut for the first time for my Aloha...that was fun!!! Make sure and visit our sponsor this week, ippity by Michelle Woerner, I was too busy chatting to remember to pull out my container of ippity stamps for my card...DUH!
