Lilo's Fun Friday

Happy Friday everyone!
Boy, so happy it's the end of the week.  It feels weird to not have something to post on Fridays anymore so I think every Friday I'm going to post a fun project and call it Lilo's Fun Friday.  :)  This is just my way of sharing something I made that is NOT for a challenge.  It might be a card or anything other than a card made for a special occasion or just because I had an inkling to color and create.  So today being the first Friday I wanted to share one of the cards I made using the cute Sister Stamps image, Mei Lin.  I have been making a few Thank you cards for some friends and my family to thank them for thinking of me on my birthday and the Sister Stamps have been used for most of them.  I love how unique the Sister Stamps are.  I am so happy that Jenny and her sister decided to share these wonderful images with the rest of us.  I have tons of washi/origami paper and now with these stamps I can utilize them more.  :)   YAY!!  Plus these images will put a smile on your face when you receive it.  At least I think so.  :)
Mei Lin by Sister Stamps

I am hoping to catch up to my awesome crafty friend Kris, who has almost used all the images from the first two releases.  I can see why, they are so fun to color and I think they are pretty unique.  And of course adorable!!  :)   The sentiment is from The Greeting Farm, and yes it is a retired set.  I thought it was perfect for my Thank you card.  The washi paper is something that I had in my stash and I used Spellbinders to frame her and distressed the inside.  The flowers on the sentiment are punches and I thought the inside flower matched Mei Lin's pinwheel.

Arigato!!

Alrighty friends, before I leave, if you would like to share for fun in my Fun Friday go ahead and link up your direct link to your project at the bottom of my post.  (Crossing my fingers that it works, if it doesn't and you don't see the blue frog just leave me a comment with ur direct link to your card)  Thanks Berenice for your help!!

Time to get to work.  Mahalo for stopping by and hope you enjoyed my first Fun Friday share.  Have a wonderful Friday and a terrific weekend!!

Arigato!!
