Aloha & Happy Birthday

Hi Everyone...I sure do miss summer vacation and all the time I had to create!  Work has kept me very busy and we are at the start of our Fall/Holiday Craft show season.  My girlfriends and I have four shows scheduled to sell our jewelry in the next couple months.  And my dear friend Betty is preparing to leave us for the warm sunshine of Arizona for the winter months.   Fall certainly is a season of change.

This card I created recently for my wonderful friend and co-worker Melodi.  and she LOVES the islands.  So it was only natural that her birthday card would reflect a beautiful person and the land she loves.  You ought to see her hula!

Nothing too unusual about this tri-shutter but I did add a 1/2" vertical strip on score fold three. That created a narrow but very strong place to create the lei in paper. When I added the flowers to the strip it made the card wider and more difficult to fit into a standard envelope.  Keep that in mind when adding embellishments too.

Mahalo for stopping by my blog!  And Happy Fall!  Let's hope we have more sunshine than rain, and more laughter than tears.

Jen
