Couple days late

I meant to post this on Sunday but I didn't get to finish it in time to post it. This was the complementary colors last Thursday for the Hero Arts blog. I had a hard time working with yellow and purple and it's probably because these colors remind me of Easter. Once again I used the woodgrain stamp for the card background and the screen shadow stamp for the purple piece. The word stamp and snail are both from the Ink 'n Stamps sets.I have to share this with you because I have never seen anything like it before. My daughter just came back from a trip to Japan and she bought some packages of Hello Kitty shaped nori. It's the cutest thing! You make your musubi and put the Hello Kitty nori face on it. There are all kinds of shapes but she just bought a couple different ones.
And these little plastic things here are for your condiments when you make your bento lunch.
These were the best because she brought me back all these Hello Kitty fabrics. They're so cute that I don't even want to cut them up. I'll probably end up making some quilts with them. She did request a tote bag for herself.Thanks for stopping by today and hope you're having a great week!!!

Hello Kitty nori? How cute is that! You're so lucky your daughter knows all the fun and cute stuff to get in Japan!

Oh, those Hello Kitty fabrics are so cute - I think my dau found other character shaped nori at Marukai but not sure it was Hello Kitty. Now you can make cute musubis and bags for your family.

You did a great job with the purple and yellow for the HA challenge! Love how you cut out the center with the Nestabilities! Well, I'm sure your daughter had alot of fun in Japan and couldn't stop "shopping" when she saw all those cute things! It's endless! How fun, you can sew a quilt or a bag to put your lunch in and ofcourse have a HK musubi in there. Cheryl, you must go to Japan and then you'll be hooked! Cami
