konnichiwa...


A couple weeks ago I struck it rich and won a $50 shopping spree to Hero Arts....One of the things I picked up was the 6x6 Konnichiwa pad to go with the Konnichiwa stamps I had already bought....

I adore the Konnichiwa Collection:


Do you see the subtle Japanese characters on the patterned paper?  I'm still trying to put together thank you cards for my DD to send out for all the generous birthday gifts she received.  This card will be perfect for her to give to her Obachan...my Momma.

I'm playing along with a Blog Named Hero's first challenge:




I'm also playing along with the Hero Art's April Sketch Challenge:



Thanks for stoppin' by!
