Received a whole bunch of samples in the mail today from Aunty. I just love getting fun mail! Here's one of the cards she sent... Its Miyono-chan dancing in the middle of a Spellbinder frame. I love how she used the negative image to frame Miyono. I never remember to do that and always end up just mounting my image directly onto the die cut. I'll have to remember to use that technique in the future.

I think its really cool that she included fans in this card. I've received comments on Miyono that she looks like she should be holding a fan. I guess Aunty felt the same way and added in some small fan accents. I love her attention to details as I would probably not remember to decorate the fan itself. I think she even inked up the fan to give it some depth and dimension. You can't really tell from this photo, but the fans are embossed (Dreamweaver stencil).

Check back tomorrow for another creation by Aunty. Don't forget to enter into our blog candy(s) on each introduction post! There's still time to enter before the deadline!


  1. Fun mail! YAY! Aw, ur Aunty did a wonderful job. I love how she created the fans. Pretty window frame for Miyono.
    I always save the negative parts just in case. Sometimes it comes in handy, other times it's just more scraps for the pile. :)

  2. Really cute card. I like the fans. Looking forward to seeing the rest of Aunty's cards. =)

  3. Wow Aunty sure did a fan-tastic job on Miyono.
    She is colored perfectly, luv her hair color...
    A very pretty card.

  4. AWW Beautiful Card. I am really lovin' all these stamps. TFS.


  5. cute! i love the little fans are the card too!

  6. I love the colors on this card. Miyono looks like a totally different girl with brown hair! When I first saw saw this, I thought it was a new character. Also, I like the fan details.
