Wishing for a Pineapple Christmas

Usually nostalgic Christmas memories are drawn from snowy landscapes...

but my winter memories were carved on Oahu.

You should see shaka-toting Santa on display at  Honolulu City Lights!!

He's even barefoot!!!

I'm homesick friends~can you tell?!!!  :)

I merged two Essentials by Ellen sets: Homespun Holiday and Stay Golden, for my tropical Christmas creation.

I used the colors in the following challenge~

Ellen Hutson November Pin-Sights Challenge

I love that I can use that pineapple any time of the year!

Thanks for stopping in~

Oh Marlena, I can't even imagine a Christmas in Hawaii! I'd love to see what you describe, it sounds fabulous to these old bones. lol How can you deal with the winter's here after living in Hawaii?!! Love, love, love your card my friend! The candy canes hanging off the pineapple are perfect and so clever. Great job! Hugs, Brenda
