Just Us Girls #364 - Trend Week



I have a story to tell you -- out of ALL my stamps, I have 1 [1!] pineapple.  While I was in Seattle, I went looking for a pineapple image.  Could I find one?  Heck no!  And, I know they are a trend right now -- I just can't get over I couldn't find one.  Fortunately, I did find the 1 I already had - in my stamp room ;).

It's from GKD Tropical Nature.  I used the CUTploration Happy Word Die.  It is cut out in a spruce green paper, but there again, my camera really does do what it wants, and made it black. I am entering this into Virginia's View Challenge #24; focal point.  By stamping the way I did, I think this qualifies.

Okay, your turn.  Come on over to the Just Us Girls Challenge and play along.  Be sure and check out the DT samples while you are there.


Thanks for stopping by~

Well you're one up on me because I don't own ANY pineapples at all - amazing given all the pineapple madness over the summer. I love the way you have the outline stamp with the pineapple on top. Xx

You couldn't find a pineapple in seattle? Um, you should have called me.
This is so cute and yay for finding one in your craft room.

It seems I am seeing pineapples all over the place lately. I do love your little one though and your card made with it is super great too!

I had to chuckle that you couldn't find the one stamp you were searching for while in Seattle. I love your card! The soft subtle flower in the background was such a fabulous idea! SUPER card!

You were lucky to find this stamp in your craft supplies, Vicki :). I really like the background you created. This is a really nice card.

Love this with the pineapple taking center stage and the subtle floral image in the background.

Beautiful little pineapple, Vicki, and I love the flowers in the background.

Funny story because it was the same story with me! Love what you did with that lonely pineapple!

The first time I saw a pineapple stamp was when we were making my card at class. Your pineapple is coloured beautifully and looks so good I could eat it. Love the soft background.

Vicki, I laughed out loud when I read the hunt for the pineapple and then finding one in your stash story. That has NEVER happened to me. yeah, right! This is complete CAS perfection. All of that wonderful white space is the perfect way to showcase the focal image. Gorgeous card. thanks so much for having me along as guest designer this month
