It’s time for Kitchen Sink Monday. I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
Since the last Friday morning, I cannot stop thinking about people in Japan. I’m trying to live my life as normal as possible but I’m really having a hard time to deal with my emotion. The good news is that I got hold of my brother in Tokyo and all of my family and friends are safe except one…I still haven’t got hold of one of my high school friends who lives in Sendai, Miyagi. I hope she is OK… I cannot stop watching TV news and follow up online news about the earthquake. I cry every time I watch them but my feeling is nothing to compare with those people who have to face this tragedy right now. I will do what I can do…pray and donate. I believe Japan will be rebuilt and they will be back to a wonderful & beautiful country again just like they did after WWII and other typhoons and earthquakes!
You can help them while you are at home. Please share and spread!
OK, Back to my regular KS Monday post…You can see all of my thoughts and feelings are toward to Japanese people when I was making today’s card ;) I originally wanted to make an Easter card with Multi Step Lilies set and more spring colors but I changed the sentiment to the one from Words of Comfort & Joy set for the last minute and redesigned the whole card….I think it was still turned out pretty.
I used the sketch from Friday Sketch Carte Challenge 11 (FSCC11) . I also combined with these challenges: Tuesday Kitchen Pantry Challenge 9 (KPC09) – Designer Papers and Wednesday Stock Up on Occasion Challenge (KSOCSympathy).
These are the steps I did for each image:
(Lily) 4th – Memento rhubarb stalk 3rd – rhubarb stalk (1 x stamp off), 2nd – Memento cantaloupe 1st – cantaloupe (1 x stamp off), 5th – Memento rich cocoa
(Leaf & stem) 2nd – Memento bamboo leaves, 1st – Memento new sprout, 3rd – cottage ivy
