CASOLOGY - Friday Featured Designer (Week 4) & A Washi Christmas Card and Holiday in Bali Pictures

This week is my last week as Featured Designer by CASology. I want to say thanks for Melissa to allowed me being on your Blog as FD :) its a happy time to contacting with you and emailing are a great Mama, great Woman and great Owner of the challenge blog. Two thumbs up for you :)

I try to collect my washi tape...if you know me I never bought it... I got as birthday present last year from sister in law...and here it is what I can make with my collection of washi tape :)

How I made my card:

1. Put my washi tape in a row like the photo above.
2.Took my Circle Stiched Circle DIE and cut the area with washi tape in a circle shape.
3. Then I put the big colorful Circle in the middle of the card base, drew (by my self) the top area of the christmast bauble, and using the ''x'' stitched DIE, run my card under the big shot.
4. Last step stamped the sentiment with red ink.
5. Card finished in less than 15 minutes :)

Tips: if you dont have washi tape, try to search stamp that looks like washi tape...example a long strip stamp and stamp it with colored ink and try to tore it, will be look like washi tape then :)

With my card I also like to join the challenges at:

I miss to go there can see nice pictures that my hubby made here. There you can see all green, rice field and nice and kind people who always smile to us (at the hotel and at the street, at the small shop).
