Happy Harumi

Did you ever see a live Taiko performance?   Oh boy, my friend and I went to one this past weekend and were totally entertained.   It was a sell-out crowd and I'm so glad my friend, Lee told me about it.   She belongs one of the performing groups.   Everyone is amazingly talented.  I'm always in awe watching all of their much for them to memorize.  WOW!   

Sharing with you today is a card I made featuring Harumi by Sister Stamps.  This is from their most recent release.   What a cutie and such a sweet pose.   

Other fun products used:
Bamboo image by Hero Arts
"Happiness" image by Crafter Companion
Ribbon by Offray
Punch by EK
Distress Ink
Cherry Blossom embossing folder
Spellbinder dies

Trivia question:.  Guess what my favorite dressing is?   Do you think I have enough???

A couple of years ago, my hubby and I went to Japan.  We had a salad with some kind of sesame dressing. Oh, it was so oishii (delicious).  Since then, I'm been hunting around for them here in Hilo.   Nothing came closer than this Deep Roasted Sesame Dressing by Kewpie.   It felt like I hit the jackpot so when they go on sale, I hoard.    LOL.  Plus, when my hubby puts dressing on his salad, he drowns it...tsk, tsk.  That's a no-no.  Ha-ha.  :-)   I still need to try the recipe Leanne posted on FB.  That one looks good too.  Thanks Leanne.

Thanks for popping in for a visit and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY.

Your card is beautiful and makes the SS image even cuter. I like what you did with the ribbon and bamboo in the background. Thank you for showing me your inspiring work. Hahaha ! My husband also brought back the same salad dressing from Japan

That's my favorite dressing too!!! Go to Don Quiote when you go to Honolulu. They have it pretty cheap for the huge bottle. Marukai too expensive.

Hi Karen, pretty card, love the sweet image and the lovely colours.
is Taiko some sort of dancing? whatever it is, I'm pleased you enjoyed it. Your salad dressing sounds yummy too, hugs Kate x

I always loves watching Taiko drum performances too. I haven't seen one in awhile.

Your card is super adorable. I love the pose of the little girl. I like what you did with the ribbon.

The next time I am in HI I'll have to keep a look out for that dressing.
