Aloha and Thank You

I never expected to visit Hawaii... until my nephew announced he and his fiancée planned to get married on the island of Kauai. WOW. Best. Place. Ever. I would go back in a minute! Although I may wait till teleportation is a reality -- it's a looong plane ride from Ontario.
I shared accommodation with my brother and his partner (they were all two bedroom suites, so it made sense all round), and wanted to send them an appropriate thank you card. 



This little turtle? Found him in a gift store in the small town of Hanalei! How could I not bring home a rubber stamp as a souvenir? I thought it would be fun to stamp him in a spectrum of colours, and popped up and added some shimmer to the shell of the green one for interest. 
Simon Says Stamp is hosting the best challenge this week: Put a Stamp On It! If you've stamped on it (old-style, not digital) then it qualifies. Works for me! I'm also adding this to the Moxie Fab World repetition challenge. Let me just leave you with a pic of a typical Kauai beach scene:


Hanalei Beach

Pin It Now!

I recognize that fab pp from JS--it's always cool to see you using digi. :) The stamp is super cute, and I LOVE how you repeated it on a swoop. This is such great card, Lindsey! Glad you had a fun time in Kauai!

This is a great card, as soon as I saw it, I thought of the Repetition challenge, so I was glad to see you entered it in that! Good luck!

I love your rainbow of turtles; I am glad you didn't choose to stamp them all the same colour. Perfect thank you for the occasion.

Wauw, that sounds and looks like an amazing trip! Did you also see the turtles? Well, it would be a long flight for me as well, but I would really like to go there once, also to see the vulcanic activity! And the entire atmosphere, of course! I love your card! I loooove turtles! Saw them lay eggs on a beach in Costa Rica and that was so amazing! Would love to see these rainbow ones somewhere as well, hi hi!
Hugs, Wendy
