City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #44 ~ Cute Stuff (Tokyo)

Thanks for being here today, I am hosting City Crafter Challenge Blog, and this week, we are going to see all the cute stuff from Tokyo, Japan.
I love Japan and all things Japanese, and that includes Hello Kitty and My Melody, the Japanese icons just like Mickey Mouse is to USA.


This is the inspiration photo and also the colors we want to see in your creation, yes, it is a color challenge, pick up the colors from MY MELODY picture.

Here's my DT sample



well, the above was my 2nd attempt, I made this one first, and I don't like it, I find it too kiddy, just like a 2nd grader's work, LOL! But I am sharing it anyway.... don't laugh, LOL!


Hop over to City Crafter and look at all the beautiful work from our DT, as well as our guest designer Yvonne Yam's fabulous creation.
This week, we have a lovely prize package kindly sponsored by our DT Ros Crawford, thanks Ros!!!

Hi!
Czech yes how long it took to arrive, although I think it depends on where the winner of the draw live here in Brazil, because in my state usually takes a long time. I've made the purchase in Milliom Memories and it took two months, in other it took 15 days. At Oh My Crafts were 2 months too. The bad thing is that, I request and I have no idea when it arrives. But yes I'll try! I love the kits! Lets just get a pending purchase a kit that ask me! Yay! :) Thanks for all!
kisses.

I remember hello kitty from erasers we traded in school. What a fun inspiration for the challenge. You are such a spot for sharing your 'rejects'. I just spent 2 hours on a card that's turned out rubbish so knowing an expert like you have off cards too makes me feel better.
