Welcome back to our 2nd day of introductions! Yesterday we introduced Hideo to you and today we have a little girl to add to our collection... Meet Mieko!
Mieko is named after my husband's grandmother. Grandma K. or as my daughter calls her "Bachan" is just as sweet as this image. Whenever I think of Grandma, I always think of New Years. Every new years, we go to her house and make mochi. (No, we don't pound- but more on that tomorrow!). My husband's family still follows a bunch of New Year's traditions that I don't remember our family ever following, so when I moved to Hilo, it was all new to me. I really appreciate that I was able to learn some of the cultural traditions from his family and are able to pass it down to our daughter.
On to my card... This is another sample I made for the retailers. I really like that you can paper piece the clothes onto the image, so I used one of the Hanko papers again. I guess you can say I'm on a paper piecing kick! Followed the same pattern that I used on the Hideo card, but cutting strips of washi and blocked them on the card to make a simple background. Then added an Island Scrapbooking laser cut sentiment.
Here's a closer look at Mieko.
