I heart coconuts.

I love coconut. (Toasted, plain, coconut milk — it’s all good.) Yum.

But I *heart* J more! Even more than the washi tape that I used to hold that piece of patterned paper on there. (And that’s really saying something.)

I was thinking of him when I made this card for the Hero Arts More Spring catalog. (It didn’t make it in there, darn. But, two other cards using the Lauderdale line did — see page 6.) The gem hearts as coconuts just totally cracked me! (There was some serious giggling going on as I put them on there.)

Anyhow, hope you had a wonderful weekend! I had hoped to get lotsa crafty stuff done, but my knee was hurting like crazy — I spent most of it with my foot propped up. It’s feeling better today, so I’m hoping to stamp some donut cards done for the Make-It + Mail-It challenge done tonight! (I’ll be really sad if I don’t get to enter my own challenge…! Der. And I really need to get a special package sent off, but it needs a card.)

Tropical hugs from Texas (where it’s supposed to be a record-setting 97 today),

  5. Wow – this had me grinnin’ from ear to ear! I am such a Hawaii gal (I even wear muu muus!) and these hearts are so perfect high in the cute trees. Love the brightness of this and your card in the HA catalog – your style is so FUN! I got my adorable card today – a real treasure! How cool is that?! A Lisa original! I need to get some of that washi tape….looks so versatile. Do you have a specific source? Thanks for all you do – you brighten my day (which is not as warm as yours, btw). Hugs, mkm

    1. Hi Maureen! I pick up washi tape everywhere! Got most of mine in Tokyo, but some favorite online places (in no particular order) are: uguisu, gingko papers, paper source, happy tape, etsy, cute tape…the list goes on! I’ve also found some at Anthropologie and West Elm. :)

  6. I think I will probably melt in 97 degree weather. Really! Love your card, it is so JAMMIN’!
