May Arts and Scor-Pal Blog Hop Day 2

Good morning everyone!  Today is day two of the May Arts and Scor-Pal blog hop.  You should have arrived from Lori’s blog.  If not, head on back to the May Arts blog and hop along.  You know there will be a prize up for grabs so you won’t want to miss it.

Here’s my project.  I made a thank  you card.  Pardon the crapalicious photo.  It’s been raining pretty much non-stop here in Okinawa for the last 3 days.

 The sentiment says, “Arigato”, which is Japanese for “thank you”.  Living here, it makes it really easy to get foreign language stickers and these hiragana puffy alphas were perfect!  I love them and love the fact that I actually know what I am saying when I do use them.

I used some awesome Scor-Pal adhesive tape to hold the twine down.  And let me tell you.  This was so much easier than liquid adhesive.

 Do you know how insanely hard it was to resist writing, “Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto”??!!  Trust me.  It was very tempting.  Maybe I will make another one………….

Now for the prize.  Leave a comment along the way and you will be eligible to win *3* spools of ribbon of your choice AND a Scor-Pal!  Holy shnikies!

Your next stop is Stephanie Ackerman’s blog.  Don’t forget to spread the love along the way!

Supplies used:
May Arts Twine (412-10)
Scor-Pal Scor-Tape (1/8″)
Basic Grey “Kneehighs & Bow Ties” Collection
Bazzill Cardstock
Heidi Swapp Color Shine “Georgia Peach”, “Tropicana Teal”, “Mustard”
Daiso hiragana lettering

Cheers!

    What a cute card. I often use the Arigato greeting myself for cards of thanks for gifts from my son and family who live in Japan. I love the simplicity and fun layout you used for this card too.

    HAH! Thanks for the laugh! I had the fleeting thought of Styx just before I read that bit.

    Did not know you were in Okinawa! I've been following you for a while too! You learn something new…

    This is really colorful and cute, very reminiscent of the Japanese cartoons I used to watch as a kid in Hawaii.
