Memories from Japan Triggered from Moxie Fab

Moxie Fab World Trigger Tuesday
   It's Moxie Fab World Trigger Tuesday play day today!  I had lots of fun with these colors and textures.  Making a silver flower from a punch and cutting the petals was easy, and I'll have to use it another time!  Used Inkadinkadoo inchie flower stamps in blue ink and white embossing.  
   I was reminded of Japanese blue and white textile designs and made a set of notecards for a friend of mine who shared our military tour in Misawa, Japan.  She once asked me to help her make some blue and white damask cards and she was telling me the other day she still has some because she uses them so sparingly.  Well, I had to fix that!!  So, I got busy! 
   Do you ever give notecards for gifts?  I love to make 3-4, tie them up with some natural raffia, and bring them wherever I go.  In Japan, one always needs a little something to gift.
   One of my favorite gifts I received there was from a local French-style restaurant where my husband took me for our anniversary dinner.  The wife/owner presented me with a darling little washi paper-covered toothpick holder with mirror.  I use it nearly every time I'm out in town, and I always smile when I think of her!

  2. I loved reading the background story :) I love giving card sets as gifts too, especially with baby gifts & for showers, etc. You can't have too many thank you cards, right?
    I love the heat & dry embossing, and the lovely medallion you've made!
