Konnichiwa

I couldn't wait to ink up my new Konnichiwa set from My Cute Stamps!! 
As you know My Cute Stamps donated ALL proceeds from the sell of this set last week to the  Japanese Disaster Relief. They sold over $600.00!! That is a lot for a small company!! 



I used this weeks challenge on Crop Stop


I used a SU! tin and made some 3 x 3 cards to tuck inside along with a few other goodies as a birthday gift for a friend :)

paper is SU card stock:early espresso, real red. memory box: brioche, ms: flower punch, nesties ovals, basic grey button, misc pearls, lace trim and check out all that sewing!! Are you proud Amy? lol

The sentiment says Hello in English, I had to ask Amy to translate! lol 
Konnichiwa also means Hello.

What a great gift set! You used that sketch to perfection!

PS - I am back from the retreat...no drama or trips to the ER this time! My one friend did get stuck in the mud and one got a very bad paper cut...but I was not involved in either incident! hee hee
