arigato...

Hello Peeps!

No crafting for me last night, too hot and too tired from my first day back to work but thought I'd go ahead and post the card that was picked up by Paper Crafts Magazine for their current
September/October 2010 issue:

The challenge was text....I used a page out of a vintage Japanese book that I picked up at a rummage sale....what better images to team up with the page than the Hero Arts Japanese Dolls!

The paper is PTI and Bo Bunny...the ribbon is PTI and the buttons are SEI....gotta love the Kaiser Crafts bling!

Thanks for all the bloggie love while I was on vaca....I really appreciate it!!!!

I'm ♥♥THRILLED♥♥ to see how many peeps are participating in my Flashback Friday Challenge!!!! Remember you have until Friday, August 20th @ 11:59 pm PDT to link up to be eligible for some blog candy:)

Bear with me as I transition from vaca mode to bloggie mode...I'll be slinging out the blog candy to random posters....I may just post those on Saturday morning along with my Flashback Friday winner...it'll be a blog candy extravaganza on that day...{good grief, I'm crazy since I'm having my 2nd garage sale that day too!}....LOL...I'm also going to post a new "Flashback Friday" challenge on August 27th...muwahaha...something that some of you peeps asked me NOT to do...LOL...don't you know better than to actually type that?!!! hahahaha

As for you typing comments at 4 am...I can commiserate, crafting really does take away from sleep, but I watch a heck of a lot less tv and figure you gotta be burning more calories stampin' then sleeping!!!
