Card #2 - the 3x3 on the left is original...the one on the right is my duplicate complete with PC-generated words on the tags.

We parked our car and took a self-guided walking tour of Lahaina. This is the remains of an old fort.
The famous banyan tree - what you see is all one plant. There's one in Santa Barbara like this. I'm not sure which is larger. I took a photo of the Santa Barbara tree when I was a teenager and I remember asking Dad to "move out of the picture".
EDIT: Carol left a comment and identified the flower as Plumeria. Thanks, Carol.
Check it out! Ok, DK, now you've got me thinking what stamp I own even comes close to resembling a poppy. And if you need an antidote to inspiration, take a look back at this wall (it's been like this for a year!):

The 'vase' is light blue cardstock stamped in turquoise with Sculpted Style, then stamped again in blue with Watercolor Garden - both stamps by Stampin' Up! I used a circle template to cut out the two curved shapes and attached the top shape with foam tape. The pattern on the flowers is white c/s stamped in turquoise with another Sculpted Style stamp. They were punched out with a Martha Stewart punch. I drew the stems with silver glitter gel pen. The sentiment was done on the PC, punched out and layered over a punched scalloped circle (MS punch). I also traced over the printed letters with more silver glitter pen. Thanks for the idea, Danyelle!

I have a small collection of blue pottery collected on other trips and this may have been the one that started it all.
