Timeless Tropical

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I have had enough of winter.  A little winter is ok but six months of winter is just too much.  I used to live downstate New York.  It is only 5 hours from where I live now but weather-wise it is a big difference.  We actually had four seasons and the seasons were evenly spaced.  There were three months of winter, three months of spring, three months of summer and three months of fall.  It was perfect.  Now I live in a place that has two seasons.  They are winter and July.   I hear that Hawaii has only one season.  75. All year round. Sounds like perfection to me!

Every time I take out the Tropical Oasis Suite, I think about warm weather and sunshine and wish I was there. One of the first things that caught my eye when I saw this suite was the large pineapple die.  I thought it was such fun and it is not complicated to put together either.  The pineapple is two pieces.  Easy as pie!  The entire suite is actually beautiful.

To make this card I used Terracotta Tile as a card base.  I layered a piece of the Designer Series Paper called Tropical Oasis on top of it.  I cut out the pineapple using the In The Tropics Dies out of So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz.  The sentiment is from a stamp set called Timeless Tropical which is also part of this suite.

Well, now that I took a little vacation, I get to go back to the snow and sleet that is going on right now.   I hope you are all somewhere warm and sunny.  If you are not physically there , then mentally.

  1. I hear you about being over winter – we had snow in areas, and hail, this past weekend! 😛 A pineapple express of warm air would be most welcome right now. But I’ll settle for your fun card!
