FINtastic friend!



The Yahoo embossing group that I belong to has been doing a monthly challenge that I am really enjoying!! One person volunteers to "host" the challenge. By hosting, they choose a brass template that they have, emboss some pieces and mail the pieces out to the participants of the challenge. Then, all the participants are to make a card using the pieces they received. We can use all the pieces or only a few... it's up to the participant. Kathy hosted this month's challenge. I know she always uses bright colors and I love the look of her cards. So I was partly inspired by her card making style when I made this card! I am pretty happy with the result.

Hope you have a great weekend, I have more hockey games to attend this weekend. I'm exhausted from this every other day schedule! It's hard going from work to home to take care of my dogs, then head back into DC and rush to eat and get to the game. I shouldn't complain, there's only a month or two left in the regular season. Then I'll miss it and won't know what to do with my extra time!

I was the lucky recipient of this card, and it is so fabulous in person. I love the way you "popped out" the fins. And the layout is fab!
