Aloha!

Wowee! We had such a nice long, busy busy Memorial Day weekend! I guess it will always be busy since Akemi has ballet, birthday and end of the school year stuff going on. The girls at Island Scrapbooking were so nice to get her a birthday balloon and a gift certificate for more Copics. She was in heaven picking out new colors. Made this thank you card for Akemi to give the girls. Busted out my new distress inks and came up with this card design. All my distress cards seem to come out so vibrant, which is nice in some cases, but I also like the lighter more subtle touch too... need to practice my technique. Anyway decided that H&G Sing stamp would match the best with this color scheme since I always seem to dress her in orange... not sure why?? One thing I gotta say about using distress inks, its made me go through all of my old stamps and start using them again! Yay! I feel like I went shopping and got some new stuff- when they were actually very old.. In some cases you can't even get them anymore! All of these products are available at Island Scrapooking now though. Hope you had a great weekend! Supplies: H&G Sing stamp- TGF Distress inks- Ranger Flourish background stamp- Hero Arts Aloha stamp- Rubber Stamp Plantation palm leaf and hibiscus- Island Scrapbooking laser cuts
