Darnell's NBUS Challenge #12 Day 7

After a week in Kauai and then a week of having a terrible cold and cough, I was finally able to make a card for Darnell's NBUS challenge.  Luckily, I was not feeling sick in Kauai.  Still coughing a bit, but better.

This is a Stamps of Life stamp set. Succulents2stamp, colored with Copics.
Not sure my mojo is back after such a long time.

A Week in Paradise - Kauai with Friends

 I went with these 4 lovely ladies on a week's vacation to Kauai.  Tami, the one next to me has a timeshare there and was gracious enough to invite our whole ladies group to spend the week there.  Only 4 of us were able to go.  The second & third pictures were from our room, so we got to wake up to this each morning.  Tami was a great tour guide.  She took us to the north end of the island where it is typically wet but we had a great sunny day.  We also visited Waimea Canyon which is considered the Grand Canyon of Kauai.  And a catamaran trip to the part of the island that can only be seen by boat.  And of course to a couple of beaches, one of which the seals decided to come swim with us.  We had such a great time and I got to extend my summer for another week.

Thanks for stopping by.
