The immediate family plans to celebrate my eldest daughter, Michele's, birthday this week-end with lunch at the Pac Island Grill in Federal Way. Her sister, Jackie, discovered this little, tucked-away, Hawaiian barbecue-style restaurant several years ago on a blind date. The family re-discovered it a few months ago when celebrating Jackie's birthday, and I think, we've decided to adopt it as a good place for family get-together, dining events. Their Loli Loli Chicken is awesome and very similar to Huli Huli Hawaiian chicken, which you may have been able to try if you've ever vacationed in the Hawaiian Islands.
Oh, and the point. . .this pre-birthday luncheon idea was a quick, family decision, and I had not quite finished Michele's card that I was in the process of designing and creating just for her. This forced me to resort to my card stash for an already completed birthday card to save the day. I chose a beautiful pink card that I made back in January at a Dara Peterson/ Luci Kirschbaum Occasions Catalog Kick-Off cardmaking event. This lovely card design uses the new rose stamps and dies to create a die-cut design that overlays the pink watercolor wash paper, Perfectly Artistic, from the Stampin' Up 2016 Sale-A-Brations flyer. The card's design is an eye-appealing, wonderfully easy one, and I thank Dara Peterson for presenting it for our re-creation attempts. See my efforts below:
Next steps, per my usual carddmaking completion style, is to create an inside design and verse that blends well with the card front and compliments the occasion for which the card is given. Luckily, this was one of the cards that I completely finished on my May Mt. Shasta Girls' Get-Away with Mom and Sis. I know Michele will love her card inside and out!
