DesignTeamHeadshots_AmandaHappy Friday, friends!  Amanda here today with your Five for Friday inspiration.  There are two times each year when I yearn for a relaxing, tropical vacation--the dead of winter and summer vacation.  Visions of hammocks on the beach and crisp, blue waters fill my day dreams.  So, in lieu of airfare and a hotel stay, I found a few images to spark your imagination and add some tropical flair to your card making and paper crafting.

Pineapples Card Nothing screams "tropical" quite like pineapples.  ​I used the Willy & Friends Stamp Set and the Will & Friends Die to make a bunch of tropical colored pineapples.  Aren't they fun?  I used the sentiment from Tiger & Lily Stamp set to complete this cheery card.
Happy Summer!
