City Crafter - Typically Tropical


You can blame me for this week's jump-on-the-bandwagon-of-a-trend challenge at City Crafter :

Typically Tropical 


Say yes to pineapples! Exotic flowers! Even flamingoes! Every time I've been shopping in London recently, this theme is everywhere! 

For my DT card I used a set by My Favourite Things , which I coloured with markers. I cut out the letters for ALOHA on the Silhouette Cameo electronic die-cutter, coloured them with Distress Ink and stamped them with the pineapple stamp. 

Our Guest Designer this week is Karren J, so I hope you will come over to City Crafter and see what she and the rest of the DT have made, and join in with your own tropics-inspired project. 

I'd like to enter:
Stempelgarten summer holidays 
The Heart Desires tropical theme 
Paper Minutes make me happy

We've got hot summery weather in Oslo now, finally! So I'm enjoying the weather. Mojo is coming and going, hope to get some cards done this weekend, unless weather is great as they're forecasting bad summer weather in general this year. I need to profit of good weather while I can.... This card suits my mood and the weather. Yes, I've noticed a lot of tropical this year, a great theme!
