Domo Arigato


Hey Blog Buddies! Have you missed me? ;) I apologize for the longer than anticipated hiatus. I seriously think for each single day you take of vacation, you should get 3 days to compensate for all the things you have to accomplish upon your return...namely laundry. :)

At any rate, I did want to share a thank you card I made recently. I am not sure why, but it never previously occurred to me to paper piece my washi paper with these Ketto stamps. I must admit, I am just smitten with how it looks!

Stamps: Wasabi Ketto (StampingBella.com), Asian Poetry (SU)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Brushed Gold, Mellow Moss, Regal Rose, Washi Paper
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, Versamark
Accessories: SU Brads, Gold Cord, CC Ribbon, Nestabilities


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Oh how pretty that paper is with the cute little image. Brilliant to pair them! I think I have a tiny piece of a similar paper some one gave me. I will have to dig it out and use it. You have inspired me!

Cute, cute, cute! Love the paper piecing. I always joke that I need a vacation from my vacation when we get home. Of course that's usually because we go and visit family and we pretty much go non stop and stay up late every night. Never mind the driving time. LOL
