Jasper on My First Play with Washi :)

YES - don't all faint :) This is my 3rd post for today. I told you in the first post (or was it the 2nd?) that the weather is woeful here and perfect for crafting, especially as it's too wet for DH on the excavators so he's home to watch the kidlets yay!

I saw a couple of challenge blogs that I really wanted to join in for the first time... so I made this little card just for them :)

There's no DP in sight... just my new We R Memory Keepers Washi tapes - I'm really liking these :) I embossed the white card with a cuttlebug Distressed Stripes folder to stick with the wood grain look. Added Jasper (Magnolia) and some SewEasy Fancy Floss in Cream Soda (bakers twine) and Hey Presto!!
Copics: E21, E33, E35 & some pink cheeks RV02

I'm entering A Blog Named Hero's Challenge #13 White Out (No coloured card or DP)
Touch Twin Markers Challenge - Fall Project in Monochrome
and Papertake Weeklys - All Creatures Great and Small

I stumbled across the Touch Twin Markers blog when I was trying to find out more info on them. If any of you use them, please let me know what you think of them...

Loving that tape! The embossing was a great idea too :-) We have a (Mini) Excavator business too, as does our eldest son, coincidentally :-) We're in Melbourne for a long long weekend - and it's COLD!!!!! It was 30 in Perth when we left and 11 when we arrived in Melbourne! We're here 'til Tuesday, hopefully we'll get some warmer weather before then, we're taking "the kids" (28 year old son came over with us, 31 year old son and pregnant-with-twins daughter in law are coming tomorrow) to the Dandenongs for a day trip, a bit of sunshine would be nice :-) We're taking them on the dinner tram on Monday night, we've been before and really enjoyed it, but they've never been. The tram company have been great, preparing "suitable" food for my DIL. Anyway, rabbiting on, just thought I'd agree.... woeful weather! Donna xx
