There is a special story behind my love of Japanese art and images. In 1945 my father joined the Army (as soon as he was out of High School) and was stationed in Japan during the occupation after the end of World War II. He traveled the whole country as the driver for the Chief of Chaplains. As kids growing up we were acculturated into Japanese food and art through my father. We were eating in Japanese restaurants (on the floor as tradition) long before they ever became popular. Our house was decorated with beautiful Japanese woodblock prints that my father brought back with him from Japan. I love the arts of Ikebana and Bonsai. I try to attend the Japanese Festival of Dolls every year at one of our local Methodist churches (they have displays of Ikebana, Bonsai and gorgeous dolls). So it is with great joy that I get to create some special Cherry Blossom cards for the Club Scrap Greetings to Go kit and honor my Father's love of all things Japanese.
Come visit the Club Scrap blog to see the entire collection of cards I created.

Time for another challenge over on the Cards in Envy blog. This time we are looking for cards that have only pastel colors. Once again I decided to dig into my Graphic 45 stash for this cute Easter card. Don't worry - I have plenty more stash and it's time to start using it!
The sentiment is Stampin'Up! So pull out your springtime pastel papers and ink and link up with us over on the Cards in Envy blog. Check out what the other Design Team members came up with too.

Time for a new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog. Show us your cards using lots of flowers and a fantasy character (unicorns, fairies, etc). It can be an any occasion card. Here's my card.
The Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime paper is so perfect. I stamped (Hampton Art), colored and Stickled my fairy. Some of the flowers are fussy cut and shaped.
Show us your flowers and fantasy characters by linking with us on the Cards in Envy Challenge Blog. Check out the other Design Team members creations too.
