Mele Kalikimaka!

I was over on the Cricut message boards the other day and happened on THIS TUTORIAL. It's about adding a wobble motion to your card. Well, right away I thought of the hula dancer on Life's A Beach, but didn't get around to executing it right away. Then yesterday I saw this CARD and VIDEO--someone else had the same idea! I love hers, but I like mine too.The hula dancer is cut at 4.5 " and backed with thin chipboard. Colors used are Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Early Espresso, and Blush Blossom. I used an old SU set called Paint Prints for the flowers on the BG and printed my sentiment on the computer (Hawaiian Punk is the font--it's free). I also used Cricut markers to outline the dancer and added glitter to the centers of her flowers. I wish you could see the way she "hulas"--for that you will have to see the video tutorials I posted above. I like this somewhat different Christmas card--hope you've enjoyed it too. Thanks for looking!

Amy for the cinnamon art you do not need to seal it. I do seal them in a plastic bag when we pack the ornaments each year. Seems like when you open the bag the next season the scent is still there. Fresh the do have a strong wonderful scent. You and the kids will love making some they are easy;)

What a super cute idea! Makes me dream of a non-white Christmas! I love that flower set you used for the background. You made some great paper to center your hula girl on!

Hi, Just returned here to remind you about Mobile Monopoly. This is a superb system and WILL make you money, especially seeing as you own a web site. Take a quick look at the video, the system is about using Mobile Advertising which is brand new and an unexposed market where you can make thousands by doing hardly any work. I assure you that after you watch their short video it will change you and it will start making you think. http://mobile-mastermind.com
