Two "Boy" Themed Cards

Happy Wednesday! I hope that all of you are doing well. I am taking it slow today since I have a huge headache.  I hope and pray that it goes away soon. Today I will be sharing with you the cards and RAKs from the July/August Secret Sister Swap.  I had the privilege of having my blogging pal Karen to send a card to.  I was a bit stumped with making a card with the theme "boy."  This theme is always a challenge for me.  As I was thinking about what stamp set a light bulb turned on in my head  to use the "Hanging Loose With Kona" stamp  set that a good friend recently gave to me.  Thankfully as soon as I decided to use the set my Mojo took off and I was able to make a card that for Karen that I was pretty happy with. 
 Here is the card partially open.
Along with the card I sent her a RAK. 
Cindy was my SS.  She sent me this awesome card.  I love all the detail that she put into making it.  The scene that she made me have mixed emotions.  On one hand it brought a smile to my face because it reminds me of all the happy times I have had with family and friends in Hawaii.  I was a bit sad too because it reminded me of how much I wish being there. 
This is the generous and thoughtful RAK that she sent to me.  The hand towel is way too nice to use.  Maybe I will just frame it instead.  :)  (Sorry the die cuts of the "hello" is backwards.)
Thanks again Cindy for everything.  Before I end I wanted to share two pictures from my last visit to Disneyland with my family.  We went last Friday to make 60th Anniversary flat pennies and watch the fireworks.  It was cancelled the last 3 times we wanted to watch it.  We wanted to be sure to see it before it ends on Sept. 5.  While the fireworks are going on music is being played in the background along with projections of different characters onto Small World, Main Street, or at the castle.  We were in front of Small World.

The show is amazing.  It is so sad that it is all coming to an end.  Before we headed home we took a picture in front of the castle.
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day and rest of your week.

  1. Thanks again for the cool "boy" card and RAK Colleen. Love all of them!!!! Cyndi's card is awesome too. She knows you love Hawaii a lot and gave you a really nice towel. Every time you use it, it'll bring back happy memories of your trips to Hawaii. Have a great weekend.
