A New Year goal of mine is to get more involved in the paper crafting community.  I decided by getting more involved I would really need to put myself out there and truly challenge myself.  I dream about being on a design team one day or having a piece of my work published!   In order for me to get there I must practice, practice, practice.  So for my first post of the year I wanted to enter my card into CAS-ual Fridays challenge.  A challenge to create a clean and simple thank you card.

Since this is my first entry to CAS-ual Fridays I wanted the card to say something about me.  My husband is from Guam and we just came back from vacationing there.  We were so blessed to be able to spend time with his family.  We went to this cute shop in the Chamorro Village that had amazingly unique Guam/Island themed rubber stamps.  In Chamorro (the native language of Guam) "Si Yu'os Ma'ase" (pronounced see-zoo-oos ma-aw-say) means thank you and in Hawaiian it is Mahalo.  So of course I had to place all the sentiments in a rainbow of colors because it is my favorite color (...yes, rainbow is a color ;o) And it wouldn't be an island themed card without the seashell border punch with a sand colored background!  Here's to crossing my fingers and any feedback is greatly appreciated!


  1. What a great card! I love that you used sentiments representing you and your husband, and they look great in rainbow colors! That seashell border looks awesome against the kraft paper too! Thank you so much for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays! I look forward to seeing more of your cards!

  2. I love the story behind your card as much as the card itself! The rainbow stamping is beautiful, and the punched border against the kraft makes me think of a sandy beach. Very clever! Thanks for sharing this with us at CAS-ual Fridays! Hope to see you again soon!


Your comments truly make my day,
so please send one my way! ;o)

More to Love!
