My Island Makes Me Smile!

Who wants to join me on my super exclusive island? (It is super exclusive because it is in my imagination but I'll share - I'm nice that way. . .) The Hammock stamp was one of my first purchases from A Muse and I used it in my very first A Muse class!
See how shimmery the waves are by my exclusive island? Nice little crabs pop up to wave hello and the sun is shining. The part you don't see is that to the right of the coconut palm is a 4-star hotel where I will be eating and spending the night - It is too hot for me on my exclusive island plus I don't want hammock marks on the back of my legs/body - that would be unsightly - Mostly I sit in my air-conditioned suite eating scallops and looking out the window at my pretty hammock. Care to join me?
All stamps and pretty papers are from A Muse! This card is for this week's 2S4Y58 and CPS179 sketches. They are pretty similar this week and I tipped the sketch on its side to accomodate my "vision".
WOW! My card got picked as Super 6 on the Card Patterns blog this week!! I've had several cards doing well in blogworld lately - you know what that means? Either my exclusive island isn't completely out of the realms of possibility OR tomorrow when I step out of the door a piano will fall on my head!
