Fancy Friday - Tropical Vibes

Welcome back to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop!
My fancy friends and I are back together again!!! We loved working with each other so much that we decided to continue on with a blog hop to inspire you in fun new ways each month! These are a group of past and current Stamping' UP Artisans that have become fast friends thru the amazing Artisan journey. Glad to have you here! 
We have 13 of us this month so don't miss a one! 
Each month on the last Friday, we will bring to you new challenges of all kinds! (color, sketch, stamp focus, etc) This month's challenge is to use one of these stamp sets that have a tropical vibe to them and create any type of project like a card or 3D. Join in the challenge and use #fancyfridaychallenge if you post on your social media!
I was so excited to use the Tropical Chic Stamp Set for this challenge! Funny thing is that I only used the hibiscus flower image (colors Mango Melody, Calypso Coral and Grapefruit Grove) from the set and just one of the die cuts (Lemon Lime Twist) from the coordinating thinlits. I was drawn into making the background leaves in a Blueberry Bushel watercolor. I used Shimmery White paper, embossed it and then using my Aqua Painter with the ink to color the embossed leaves. I did add some Lemon Lime Twist ink in some of the blue leaves as well. Of course, I fussy cut out the greeting!
  My friend Susan said it looked like a Hawaiian shirt!
I can see that cause I could use a Hawaiian vacation right now! LOL

Thanks for stopping by my post for the Fancy Friday blog hop!

Inspire. Create. Share. That's what I love to do.

We're a group of past Stampin' Up! Artisan award winners that love to share! Every month we bring an interactive online program for stampers all over the globe. The whole idea is to equip you to get the most out of them the Stampin UP! products you buy whether a customer or demonstrator. This is also a valuable resource for Stampin' UP! demonstrators for class ideas and get your customers stamping! It is more than stamping as we build relationships with each other is sharing our love of creating! We'd love you to be an active part of our wonderful crafting community!

I first doubted It was not true but decided to try, when I contacted this herbal physician via his e-mail, I purchased herpes herbal medicine and received it within 7 days and used it as prescribed, I tested negative within 3 weeks use, do not loose hope to contact him early If you need help, you can contact him on email or you can visit his website on or am convinced he can help you too
