Welcome to the Luau!

The Luau with Deedee's Digi's that is!  Just think - in your mind you can be anywhere you want, and now with these new awesome digi's from Deedee's Digis, well, you can go there in your paper-crafting too!  Just sit back and relax - there's a party going on!
First up, I have to tell you I fell in love with this pineapple!  Now, I know it sounds silly because I don't know *why* I love it, maybe because as soon as I saw it, I *knew* the card I wanted to make!  And Miss Candace, although I sure love you, your tutorial has given my hot glue gun a workout girlie!  I am pleating ribbon on everything!

Next, I decided to do a card with the super cute TIKI man that comes as a free gift for playing along today!  So, the truth is, we are all about parties at my house!  All in good,clean, fun that is!  Everyone gathers at my house for their birthday, cookout, etc...  So next year I want to build a "porch" on the side of my yard (sounds crazy, I know), but I explained it all to hubby and told him I would have to throw a big "porch party" when it is complete!  Wouldn't this be the cutest invite?

However, I am all about a card with more than one purpose and I hated to think of waiting until next year to use this cute little feller, so I transformed him into a card for the Prayer Shawl Ministry at church.  See, not all of our shawl recipients are adults, and the kiddos of all ages need cards, too!  So, the sentiment says: "Dude - Get to know the 'Living Water' -John 4:1-26"  I can soo imagine him saying that!!!

And last, but certainly not least, these little flip flops were the freebie on Monday, but what would a good luau be without a new pair of "flops"?

    Will you quit making me think I need a frog....LOL!!! I love how you use it for your cards.

  7. What a wonderful collection of cards, Mary! Each of them is terrific, but I especially love your second tiki card with the greeting aimed at a young adult -- what a great way to reach out to youth and introduce them to Scripture!!! Hugs, Deedee
