Great Catch

Good Friday Morning!
Are you ready for the weekend? I am!! I have been recuperating from my shoulder surgery slowly but surely. Physical therapy has been kicking my butt! No pain, no gain, so they say.... Stitches come out on Monday and hopefully clearance from the doc to be able to drive.

With this post comes my announcement of the invitation to join the Raise The Bar Challenge Design Team. I am now a "Bar-Tender"! Fun, fun group of ladies and wonderful challenges each week.The Bar-Tenders "encourage you to challenge yourself, raise your own level of crafting, and keep your resolution to use those new stamping items". 

We have a sketch challenge this week and our sponsor is Whimsie Doodle stamps. Go check out their stamps. So much fun to be had with their images! I used the Great Catch image for my card today. Those fish are the cutest things and I had a blast coloring them. I used Funky Fresh Valentine digital papers from Creativity by Crystal. You can find the paper at
