Sending good thoughts for Addicted to CAS #70

Hi Everyone.  Happy Saturday.

It's the very talented Barb's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge this week and she has a very timely code word for us:

Now... as I am waaaay past the age of having school aged children nor do I have grand-children, I had to think outside of the box for this one!

I pondered and pondered and decided to go look in my DSP stash to see if anything would inspire me.  Voila!    I had the perfect DSP featuring a school..... of fish :-)  So that's what I went with :-)

The paper was a little bright, so I covered it with a piece of self-adhesive vellum to tone it down a little and added my sentiment.

As this is another card for my 2015 Cards for a Cause card drive, I love the fact that it is multi-generational and good for either gender.

I hope that you will play along with us this week.  The winner will receive a $10 voucher from our fabulous sponsor:

I also hope you will check out the fabulous cards from our design team.  There is lots of great inspiration there for you.  Including from our August Guest Designer - Linda.
On a personal note:
It's been a long week workwise and I am so glad that it is Friday.  I'm looking forward to spending some time in my craft room tomorrow listening to my favorite classical radio station.  It's amazing how it relaxes me and centers me.  The fact that I can get some relaxation time and still make cards for a good cause is a win-win.
It's late and I need to go and feed the kitties and do some tidying up, so I will leave you all and will be back tomorrow with my Paper Players card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.

You are so clever, Jaydee! I love your 'school of fish' and the fisherman's knot you created for the tag! Love the sentiment, too!


Loved the knot!! and the good wishes for a kid going to school.

Happy weekend!
