Kiyoko Playing with Sparklers

Hope you're all enjoying the weekend. I had a fab Saturday going to a couple of craft fairs in Hilo. Jenny's was the first and of course I got there 15 minutes before the start time. Hee-hee, that's me. Well, we go to the same hairdresser and since Debbie can't go to any craft fairs because she has to work, I asked if she wanted me to get something for her. She was so excited and asked for 4 Hello Kitty calendars (the long ones). I wanted to make sure I got those for her before they sold out and got pretty much first crack at them. BOY, FOR A SMALL FAIR, THEY SURE HAD AN ABUNDANCE OF AWESOME HANDMADE CRAFTS. WOW!!!

Today, I want to share this New Year's card featuring Kiyoko. What a cutie playing with her sparklers. I got the "tori gate" stamp by Megawa at Stamps 'n Memories last month. You know how sometimes you see a stamp and just know you gotta have it? Well, that was the case with this one because I thought it would be perfect for an Asian theme / scene. I added patches of grass (stamp from Viva Las Vegasstamps), cloud stickers (sorry no label on my pkg.), and of course that cute little pooch (by Dandelion Designs) to create a scene. Kiyoko and the cherry blossom branch are adhered with Pop-Dots to give it demension. The cherry blossom branch is a sticker by Mind Wave, Inc. that I got in Japan

Other supplies: Distress ink lightly applied (blue for the sky and green for the grass) and Copics.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you all HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY.

Hugs,
Karen
