Where in the World Am I?

Hello! I'm taking a two week blog break, on vacation at our favorite destination. Here's a hint.

Yes, it's the Tokyo Sky Tree, built in 2012. See the lights? They turn colors every night 
from blue to purple and from red to green during Christmas.

It's been an experience so far-- battling a typhoon and praying it will quickly pass. 
We're eating tons of good food and getting some crafty shopping done in the land 
of washi tape and Copics.

I'll be back sometime next week. See you then and thanks for stopping by!

Tag You're It Challenge #8

Tag You're It Challenge #8 is brought to you by teammate Lisa.

And here's my take on her tag.

I stamped a diagonal stripe background and adhered some leaves from my scrap pile
and a couple of acorns from Lawn Fawn. The sentiment bubble is also from Lawn Fawn,
and I stuck a little puffy heart on it. The ribbon is seam binding dyed with distress inks.

Visit Tag You're It Challenge blog to see the winners of Challenge #7
and how the rest of the design team was inspired by Lisa's tag.
Come join the challenge if you can. Link up your tag(s) by
Wednesday, October 22nd.

CAS(E) this Sketch 96

Here's CAS(E) this Sketch 96 brought to you by N@ Ali.

And here's my take on it.

I turned the sketch 90 degrees and finally inked up Papertrey Ink's Snowflake Flurries.
Don't ask me why I went with pink. I even threw in a bit of neon! Whaaaat??

And a heads up that Challenge 96 is a two weeker, so you have until
Thursday, October 23rd to link up your card(s).

Please be sure to stop by CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of the team
interpreted the sketch and join us if you can!
Hope to see you in the gallery!

Virginia's View Challenge #8--Clean and Simple

Just popping in to share my card for Challenge #8 at Virginia's View--Clean and Simple.

For my card I used Altenew's origami elephant and tried Tasnim's
no line watercoloring technique. Please don't look too closely; it looks better from afar.
And if you squint your eyes.

After stamping the sentiment, I realized it's now a sympathy card. Oops!
I'll try the technique again and use a "happier" sentiment.
The card was finished off with Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins.

You have until October 18th to link up your clean and simple project
and the prize sponsor is Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!
