Aloha



Aloha!

Aloha in the Hawaiian language means affection, love, peace, compassion and mercy. Since the middle of the 19th century, it also has come to be used as an English greeting to say goodbye and hello.

It is also the state nickname of Hawaii, the "Aloha State".

Researched on wikipedia.

I created this card using the Laura's Sketch 21 on 2S4Y.

The sponsor for this week is Starving Artistamps.

So of course, I had to use my Doodle Factory stamp that I got from Starving Artistamps as part of their One Million Stamps Project. Which is super cool because you get a terrific stamp from Starving Artistamps for a $1. Be aware that it is necked rubber which means that there is no backing for your stamp. And you don't know what you're getting, except that you do get to mention a Theme you would like your stamp to be.

So this is one of the stamps that I received in the mail. And I think he's super cute. DH says it reminds him of Stitch from Lilo & Stitch.

So as soon as I saw the sketch this week and who the sponsor was I totally knew that I needed to create this card.

This card is also using paper from my scrap pile so I don't really know to much about who made the paper. I do remember buying the paper at Archiver's when they used to have 12x12 in the Hot Spot.

The buttons were a gift from my friend Karen who was my Secret Santa. And the stitching used thread from my sewing kit.
