Hi Jen~

I have to tell you that I love to Florida, and I hate palm trees. (They don't give any shade!!)

So, now you know how impressed I am with your Aloha card! I think it is great! I actually love THAT
paln tree stamp!

I love the great dsp you stacked with it! You pulled this together in a great way, Jen!

He IS Able,
Traci S.

Traci S. said...

OOPS! Sorry, I thought there were separate comment sections for each card!

You flirty card-maker..."You can sit under my umbrella!" LOL so cute! I really like how you stamped the umbrellas...this way and that! This is a fantastic card, Jen!

How fun! Thanks you so much for sharing your cards!

I hope life is going well...and the end of most of the country's temperatures are dipping a bit! Hope you have some cooler weather!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
