Week of May 21-27 (Monday)
Enjoyed spending many hours in therapy this weekend (aka- making cards in my craft room with a fragrant cup of hazelnut coffee close to hand!) As a result, I was able to finish up several challenges. So fun!

For the first two challenges, I used a favorite fairy stamp from Simon Says stamps. (I find that I use this set more often after I got a MISTI for Christmas. Love how I can restamp numerous times if needed to get a bold image.)
Entered into:

Send a Smile for Kids Challenge-Bright Colors for Kids

When I saw this great fish image in a Game, Fish and Parks booklet I knew I had to put it to use. The finishing touch on my card was some fun cord I found in my stash that looks like flimsy seaweed. Reminded me how a bit of cord, twine, yarn, ribbon, etc. can often add that extra ooomph that a card sometimes needs to make it look complete. So… the challenge at wecraftcards (which I was hosting this week) was to incorporate something tied on or around the card. Also entered into another masculine challenge… just in time for Father’s Day.
