Meet my friend Cheryl who is a Stampin' Up! demonstrator from Maui.

Cheryl is the leader of a group of demonstrators known as the Maui Big Shots!  Over the past few years I have enjoyed getting to not only know Cheryl but many of her team members.

 In fact just a couple weeks ago several of them flew over to Oahu to attend our Stamped With Aloha Stamp Camp.

It is always wonderful to spend time with these very lovely ladies!

A few days ago I went to my mailbox and I saw that I had a hand stamped card from Cheryl.  I brought the stack of mail in the house and sorted it all, leaving the hand stamped card for last.  

Does anyone else open their mail that way, saving the best for last???

Well, Cheryl's card certainly WAS the BEST!!  I smiled from ear to ear when I opened up this super sweet Pineapple Panda card.

Isn't this card adorable?

Cheryl combined two of my favorite things, Panda's and Pineapples.  I love the creative way she used the pineapple as a balloon!  The products she used came from the Tutti-Frutti Suite in our occasions catalog.  I have some of these products but have not played with them yet.  Cheryl's card has definitely inspired me to create some Tutti-Fruitti cards of my own!

I am grateful for my Stampin' Sister Cheryl whose unexpected hand stamped blessing not only inspired me but also really brightened my day!
