How do I beat the chill of winter weather? Thoughts of somewhere warm and tropical usually seems to help. :-) My favorite sunshine spot is Aruba where I’ve been fortunate to spend more than a few winter getaways. This divi divi tree marks the midway point of my favorite beach walk. I really love it’s twisted trunk… it’s got so much character!

In Aruba they will tell you that if you get lost on the the island to just follow the direction these trees are pointing. They are shaped this way by the constant trade winds and just happen to point towards the side of the island where all the hotels and resorts can be found.

Quite a few years ago I created a series of Aruba inspired illustrations and turned them into rubber stamps. Our #2409-M Divi Divi Tree image is one of my favorites and is also this week’s Stamp of the Week feature. Now check out these beautiful cards the Rock Stars have come up with to inspire you!
