Hi! I've been really tempted these last few days to buy some new stamps especially some Saturated Canary or the cute Wryns from Tiddly Inks. Usually I'm not too into digis, but these are so cute! But I've been really good! Been trying to use the stamps I've neglected or haven't even inked up yet. But I hear new digis will be added to Saturated Canary's shop on Monday so we'll see how much longer this stamp diet will last. I don't even know how long I should do this. Maybe 'til I use at least every stamp I haven't used at least once?
I was in search of a sketch for my next card and so checked out the latest one at the deconstructed sketch (#38).
SCACD when I last ordered from them. I thought it looked kind of Asian-y. I downloaded a free Hiragana font and printed out the sentiment which translates to Happy Birthday. I had to Google the sentiment since my Japanese is soooo rusty but I still remember some characters. I guess 6 years of high school/college Japanese helped a bit. I actually left out the last character so I hand wrote it in. It looks a bit different from the same character higher up. Don't you just hate it when you're done and realize you've made a mistake?? Ugh. Drives me crazy but everything was all glued/taped down when I noticed the error. The funny thing is that only my older son noticed which character was out of place so I guess it looks OK.
Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
