One thing we were pleasantly surprised to discover in Tokyo was the appearance of hydrangeas. They're everywhere! In the city along the sidewalks, by the rail tracks, in the parks. And so many colors. My favorites were the blue ones with a touch of lavender. Here are just a few photos I snapped while walking around.
And here's Kyoko, who I met back in 2012 on the Tim Holtz Caribbean Cruise. We've been Facebook friends ever since and when she heard we were coming to Japan, we arranged to meet up for a some shopping and a wonderful lunch. Kyoko was so kind to spend several hours with us, answering our questions about Japan and suggesting several things we should do while there. I can't thank her enough!
So in thanks to Kyoko and to symbolize the beauty of hydrangeas in Japan, I created this special card just for her. I hope you take a moment to visit the ECD blog and check out how I created it.
Thanks and have a great Monday!
