Alan's in Hawaii!


My blogging friend Katherine "Kit" Perry sent me this adorable crocheted lion named Alan, all the way from the UK! I won him in a random drawing on her blog and I was thrilled when I found out.

I love amigurumi and Leo just happens to be my astrological sign. How perfect is that?





Kit included this adorable card, too. I wish you could see all the glitter she added that gives just the right amount of bling!

Thanks so much, Kit! I'm happy to report that Alan is perched on my Copics holder and he's such great company.






I'll be sending Kit this card using this cute lion digi from MelJen Designs. Can you believe it was a freebie? I heard about this company from Kim , who is on the MJD design team. Check it out here.






Stamps: MelJen Designs digital stamp
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink; unknown colored cardstock from Japan
Copics used: Y21, E31, R02, R81, BG000
Other: Nestabilities labels, circle, & scallop circle dies; sheer ribbon

Hope you're all having a great weekend!
Thanks, always, for stopping by...
