Kazan's Sketch 16

Mele Kalikimaka is a Christmas song sung as a warm greeting from Hawaii. The song takes its title from the phrase of "Mele Kalikimaka," the Hawaiianized pronunciation of "Merry Christmas".
This week my sketch is brought to you from the beautiful Islands of Hawaii. We are here on an awesome vacation soaking up sun & sand. I wanted to wish you all a wonderful Christmas and thought you would appreciate warm Mele kalikimaka greetings from Hawaii. If you would like to hear more about how we got to visit Hawaii please visit my blog Nunu Toolies to read about the story behind the story ;)

Keeping with Hawaiian traditions we would like to extend a warm Mahalo (Thank You) to our wonderful Sponsors that have supported us over the past 6 months and helped make 2 Sketches 4 You such a success. We wish you all a wonderful Holiday Season and a prosperous New year

Calia Yang said...

here's my take on sketch 16. It's ironic that you all had a hawaiian theme. I just got these Hawaiian stamps 3 months ago and haven't had a chance to use them. So I'm glad I got to use them for the first time for one of your cards! ^_^ My card is located here:
