Yumi & Fumi Handmade Crafts blog hop and stamp showcase

Hello!!!

If you just arrived from Renate's blog then you are on the right track.  If you just popped in to say hi and see what I'm up to, then you are in luck.  We are having our first introductory blog hop at Yumi & Fumi Handmade Crafts!!  Head on over to YFHC blog and start at the beginning.  Lots of fun stuff going on over there and you don't want to miss anything!!


I hope you have been enjoying the hop so far.  Today I get to share my card featuring "Fumi" of the duo Yumi & Fumi.  She's named after me and see those buns on her head?  Well from time to time I would have my hair up like that too.  That's how she was "born" so to speak. hahaha!!  The stamp is one and measures 2.5" x 3.25".  You can either separate them or stamp them together.


Here is the card I made going pretty CAS with lots of layers.  O and that beautiful crotched flower was from my fellow DT and friend Kim Yu!! She's amazingly talented and I had to force myself to add the flower since I hoard all of her yummy creations. hahaha!



She's so cute yea?!  They all are.  I used the bubble border and sentiment from ATS.  Also used Spellbinders scalloped heart and regular heart to create the sentiment window.

Alrighty, now you should be on your way to see Sandie!!!  She's last on the showcase but she's got the piece de resistance!  It's sooo cute and totally encompasses Yumi & Fumi perfectly!  hahaha!!

Mahalo for stopping by and I hope you all enjoy yourselves!!

Hugs,
Leanne
