soy happy for you


Happy Mother’s Day Weekend!

Here’s a fun card that I whipped up last night:
This is the first time I’ve played with the Lawn Fawn Let’s Roll set.  I knew I was going to use that Soy Sauce bottle.  

Here’s a super interesting article about the man that designed the bottle/packaging.  Not only did he design that iconic dispenser but he also designed the Akita bullet train and Yamaha motorbikes.

Growing up in a Japanese household there was alway shoyu (sho·yu shoh-yoo) on the table.  Truthfully, I’m not much of a condiment person so I don’t use the stuff much.  This is probably when I tell you that I don’t eat sushi either, at least any of the raw stuff…I know, I know.  Hard to believe that I’m 2nd generation Japanese, both of my parents were born in Japan. Don’t get me wrong, I eat plenty of Japanese food and quite frankly prefer Asian food to anything else.  

I’m playing along with

I did a smidge of stitching to adhere the vellum speech bubble so I’m also playing along with

Iron Craft Challenge Week

I’m playing along with Inspiration 1:  Trends from Julie

Dies!

I knew that I wanted to use vellum with the Speech Bubble Border…it lets the background stamping still be visible but not overpower the sentiment.

Whew, a bit of multi-tasking, eh?
