Kinnichiwa-Hello!

Konnichiwa-Hello my friends! Welcome to the Fred She Said blog hop! Today we have some brand new images and papers to show you!


I've used the new image from the Smelling the Cherry Blossoms set! I've colored her with Prisma pencils & Copics. The DP is from sei, black orchid pack. Sentiment is CG! I've popped the little Kimono girl atop her background.


If you are playing along with the HOP today, please follow along in the order below, Commenting & Collecting special words along the way! At the end of the hop, you'll email your code sentence to Deanne. My special word for you is: SAID and you're next stop is Michelle Pearson, wait until you see her fabulous creations!!!!

Have a super day!!! Blessings!
