Far East Blog Hop

You never know what you might find on Facebook. I found a group that does monthly blog hops where participation isn't mandatory - you know, for those times when things just get a bit too chaotic. Well, this month, it's a "far east" inspired blog hop.

Here's my card

I made cards similar to this one to thank those who were so thoughtful and compassionate, following my mom's passing. I used a stamp set that is asian inspired but I have no idea what the company that made it is, nor the name of the stamp set. Nonetheless, I used a little girl wearing a kimono stamp. I added color with Copics and fussy cut her out. For the background, to continue the far east influence, I used the Darice Bamboo embossing folder and some dark green cardstock. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's Let's Roll stamp set. In case you're not aware, arigato means thank you in Japanese.

Next head on over to Miranda !!

Here's our line up in case you get lost along the way.
