What if it really is about the Hokey Pokey…. Giggles is singing put your left hip in , put your left hip out, put your right hip in and SWIRL it all about!


This is for my special SIL who is recovering from surgery. She just loves Penguins so I bought her this stamp and tucked it inside the card.

The background is designer paper from We R Memory Keepers - I bought two pieces so that I could paper piece the Palm trees. Giggles bright Hula skirt is flocked and her swim top (I had to hold myself back and not make them coconuts) is paper pieced.

Close up of Giggles:

The palm tree leaves are highlighted on top with White Craft Ink and shadowed on the bottom with Tea Dye ink. I did this to add dimension to the leaves. The coconuts are brown buttons.

Palm Tree:

Oh - sewing - of course I could not stop myself! I hope you enjoyed this cute card!
