Card Sketch Challenges

Christmas in Paradise!

Close your eyes and envision sunshine, white sand, a warm breeze, crystal blue water and a tropical drink in your hand…

Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say on a bright Hawaiian Christmas Day
That’s the island greeting that we send to you from the land where palm trees sway
Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way to say Merry Christmas to you

Yep, I miss the beach. I haven’t had a beach vacation in a few years and I miss it terribly! That yearning was rekindled when I received my latest Club Scrap kit…Paradise.

I haven’t made Christmas cards in a few years, and I saw this on Pinterest when I was looking for ideas…

A little of this kit, some of that…AND some little Santa hats and my card was born!

Jeez, now I have the Beach Boys songs rolling around in my head! Sigh…I miss the beach.

  1. I could hear my Dad singing the Hawaiian Christmas song in my head because he used to sing that on Christmas. I love your Christmas Card Wendy – So adorable! Have a great day.
