I know, I know, it is February, but it is always good to start early right? Plus I am really cleaning up the small scraps of patterned paper I have in my hoarding box, LOL!

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 398 ~ Light as a Feather!



The theme is Light as a Feather! Check out challenge details HERE!


my project is a name card.... I like keeping this little card in my purse, whenever we meet new people and want to exchange contacts, this is what I would use instead of pull out the cell phone, I know, I am backdated, but I still love having a name card with personal touch, plus what I actually do is upcycle my business card by sticker another layer of paper over the old business card I used to have! 


Products used -
 Feather stamp and sentiment - Papertrey Ink

Check out the beautiful work by the CCCB Designers HERE at City Crafter Challenge Blog!

O'ahu - Did I tell you I LOVE Hawaii?

After spending a few days in Kona, we flew to O'ahu!


Unlike Kona, Honolulu is very crowded, a lot of people everywhere, but we don't really care....


strolling along Waikiki everyday, or go deep into the neighborhood scouting on zillow for prices of the apartments few blocks away from the beach


take a few steps from our hotel to Royal Hawaiian Center for nightly Hawaiian music...


taking Ukulele lesson...


eating Sushi everyday, I mean good Sushi... and I am not the Sushi Connoisseur here, the non-Asian guy is, I am the opposite, I love SPAM!!!!!


so we had to find myself the best Musubi cafe in Honolulu. Spam Musubi is definitely the marriage of American and Japanese..... I love it!


Life was perfect until Saturday morning....


Ok, I got up from bed and get dressed, grabbed my backpack, which I know I have my wallet and passport in there, and then I throw the car keys and house keys into the bag, put on my shoes and off we go, out of the hotel room to the lobby, it was a mess, some people were crying, probably cannot find their loved one, most people followed the hotel staff and went to the basement, DH insisted to stay outdoor, he thought it would be safer, I remember texting my girls back and forth, and then 20 something minutes later......


Seriously? Someone push the wrong button that morning?
I need more "clicks" to change the password for my email account then to sent a missile threat alert to the whole state of Hawaii!!!!! seriously????

after that, I asked DH what did he grab when we first got the alert, guess what? Not his wallet, not his passport, it was his diet mountain dew!!!! LOL!!! : 0
Well, his explanation was, if we get into the shelter, it could be hours, he needs a sip of soda of course, or he would be thirsty! LOL!


Despite the missile scare, we had the nicest vacation ever. Every minute of it was amazing! I loved it!

.................................

Before I go, just another card I made a while ago for CCCB that requires Mushrooms, I wasn't happy with this one so I made another one to post for that challenge instead, so tell me what you think about  this one!


Bye for now, have a great weekends everyone.
Stay warm, stay safe wherever you are!
