This is me....

My Photo
I'm a person of wide interest. I like doing a lot of things but I'm a master at none. Right now I'm having so much fun making cards to share with my friends and family ....There are so many wonderful designers out there and the creativity of each one is so incredible. Im currently taking a painting class working with acrylic paints. I have a loving family...Married to the same wonderful man for over 31 years. I have three grown children and one beautiful grandaughter(who also shares my love of crafting).

Aloha...Aloha Blog Hop

If you arrive from Maria Matters blog then you are on the right path.

First a great BIG Thank You to  Michelle for the wonderful opportunity to have been on her first Design Team...It was a huge Honor to be able to work with her and her beautiful stamps.And it has been an honor to have been part of a fantastic team of artists...I've enjoy every minute Michelle.
I'm sure the next DT will have just as much fun as I have. Thanks to all the Design Team Members  for all the inspiration and beautiful creations.

Here is my Card for the blog hop ....I hope that you enjoy. I wanted the card to be simple so that Leilani would be the star of the show. I also made a stand alone card with the same image Here is a link for a tutorial on spiltcoaststampers.
Thanks Michelle for Leilani
Aloha Kini
