SC Take Two.......Sweet Geisha

Francie G. sent me this Hero Arts set a while ago and this is the first time I had time to put it to ink!!! Isn't she just the sweetest.....and there are other images just as cute in this set. Thanks, Francie, for thinking of me. As you know, I do love stamps with an Oriental flair. Reminds me of my trip of a lifetime to Japan. The sentiment is actually a Verve stamp. The dp is from a Martha Stewart paper packet. The cardstock is all SU. I colored the image and its background with my Copics, and used my SU piercing tools. The 'branch' Cuttlebuh folder was used on the back panel.

I made this earlier in the day, but did not get it posted as I was off celebrating the upcoming retirement of two very dear friends.....members of our O.F. C.......which stands for Old Farts Club, a name which we gave ourselves years ago BEFORE the name fit as well as it does now....lol!!!! After June, there will only be one official OFC member teaching.....all the rest of us will be retired.....well, retired from teaching that is....not from life!!!!! Hope you each have a wonderful group of friends in your life!!!

Joanne, this is so beautiful and it sure reminds me of all of those Kokeshi dolls we brought back from Japan.I have some of them sitting in my wall unit in the living room and they sure bring back the good times we've had for 4 years with friends over there in the land of the rising sun. I feel very blessed to have been able to live there for 4 years. Thanks (arigato gozaimasu) for sharing this Beauty and bringing back memories. Hugs, Sabrina
