Warm Me Up!

The snow is falling heavily outside. I am sitting here dreaming of a warm sunny island vacation. Henry here, with his tropical shirt and frozen concoction knows exactly what I mean. If I look at him long enough, I can almost hear the waves of the ocean and feel the warmth of the sun.

To carry through with the tropical feel I have used some of my stash of Scenic Route papers to make my card. I have also done some recycling with this card as the green mat behind my image is actually the packaging from the Prima lily that I have used as an embellishment.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:

Stampin For the Weekend - Getting Warmed Up
Stamp Something - Cute Somethings
Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenges - Anything Goes

Whiff of Joy is currently holding their 1st guest designer call for 2011. I will be entering the card above but want to share with you all another card that I have not yet posted. This card Spider Henry, a freebie from Whiff of Joy. He was a huge hit at my nephew's birthday.
