Lilo's Fun Friday #19 - on Saturday!

Happy Girls Day everyone!
Sorry I didn't get a chance to post a LFF project yesterday.  I decided to wait until today since this is the card that I wanted to share.  I waited til today because I thought this would be perfect for Happy Girls day.  I found out about this wonderful day last year from all my Hawaii blogging friends (they are all listed on my right side bar under "Aloha from Hawaii.")  I wish my mom had told me about it, but so glad I know about it now.  So in honor of this special day where girls are celebrated I made this card using Sister Stamps, Mei Lin.


I don't really have anyone to give this to so I kept the sentiment simple.  Yes it's another handwritten one.  That gorgeous washi paper is from Hanko Designs.  I forgot I had bought it and while rummaging through some bags I found it and two more packets of washi papers!!  Love when that happens.  (lol)  I pulled colors from the washi paper to color Mei Lin and her pin wheel streamers.  She's cut out with a wonky rectangle Spellbinder and I distress inked the inside with dusty concord DI.   I really feel bad covering up all that beautiful paper, but I think Mei Lin looks beautiful here so I'm gonna leave it as is.

O!  You all have to stop by Nadine's blog.  I saw her card this morning and I had to smile because we used the same stamped image.  Her card is beautiful!!  And I'm just not saying that because she gave me a shout out.  I truly believe she does really amazing work!  :)

Just a few things happening in my neck of the woods.  I will be very busy for the next two weeks preparing for a stamp convention and a Crafters show.  More details to follow next week.  I hope that in between I can stop by and oohh and ahhh over everyone's creations.  I wanted to say Thank you in advance for visiting me.  You all know how much I appreciate the love.
 

Okie dokie, back to the craft table to continue working creating.  I hope you all have a wonderful Girl's day and crafting weekend!!  Mahalo for stopping by!

Hugs,
Lilo

Hi Leanne,
Ohhh, this is NICE and looks great with the pretty washi paper. Don't work too hard prepping for the convention and Crafters Show. Actually, it sounds like a lot of fun. :-)
