washi hello.

Happy Sunday!

We're experiencing a small heatwave in the pacific northwest and I'm melting.  I realize that it doesn't get nearly as hot as it can in other states but there is a reason why I live in the Seattle area...I'm a fair weather girl.

okay, enough of the weather.

I love washi.

Sometimes I think I love to collect it more than I use it!

I picked up a couple rolls of green washi at Impress and decided to go to town with them:

I actually covered a 4.25 x 5.5 inch panel with the washi...cleaned it up and then adhered it to my card panel.  That way it is all neat & tidy on the inside:)

I love to combine Neat and Tangled's

  1. Love the new Washi and it is my favorite color!

  2. Great use of washi! I was wondering if the inside was neat, thanks for sharing your secret! :-) I think we have your weather here in Brisbane, it is cool, grey, and drizzling rain here. I'd take this over a heat wave, but I wouldn't mind a little sunshine to go with the cool weather, LOL!

  3. I think we traded weather for the day...woke up to fog and cool temps. Love your washi...super fun card!

  4. the washi looks great, and those birdies are too cute!

  5. It's crazy humid here...I'm like you, the mild weather is my thing. I'm melting. (I just went & checked...94% humidity right now. And IT'S NOT RAINING NOW) Gawd.
