Twelve days??

Thanks to my niece, Heather, for pointing out that I leave for Japan in TWELVE days! I didn't believe it until I used all my fingers and toes....yep, 12 days! Tomorrow we get our rail passes for the JR trains--love the bullet trains!--and our yen and cell phone which can only be used in Japan. If we use our iPhone in Japan, it's $1.69 per minute so the cost of renting the cell phone is well worth the $30.

I'm finishing up my cards for Kate and her family and will send them off to Jennifer this week. I made the surfer card for her brother, Will, and will probably put some stickers inside, and the round card is for her older sister, Olivia.




I decided to give the buttony one to her parents. I love the sentiment and it's my first card that I took to the sewing machine! Stitching was fun and I may do it more often and some zigzag stitching when I get a bit braver....


Thanks for visiting! Have a great rest of the week....
