Fish & Flower

Hah... How do you like that post title? I feel like it sounds weird, but the content of today's post has those 2 ingredients. Almost sounds like a market place, huh?

This past weekend it rained all day Saturday on my  neck of the wood, so it was a good weekend to just hole up in the house. Eli the pug had a dog play date for a  couple nights (I had my cousin's dog with me) and he wasn't use to all the rambunctious activities that he slept and snuggled a lot after his play date left. I think we might get another dog after our trip. Eli needs a friend to play with.

How about you? How was your weekend? Besides pampering Eli, mine was pretty productive. I did lots of laundry, check out some job sites for work, and I finished about 80% of all my DT work for May. I will be taking a 10 days vacation mid May, so I have to work ahead since I still have to finish planning our vacation. Yes, I am one of those people who likes to plan my vacation in details. Just enough to make sure we get to see as much as we can. :)

Now, let's get on to a couple projects, shall we? First up is my card for Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge. This week we have anything goes challenge. LOL, my kind of challenge. To be honest, my card for today was made a few months ago. It's one of the publication reject. But, I still think it's pretty darn cute.

This card makes me happy. The colors, the smiley fish & the pelican all just so cheerful!

With a super duper easy challenge like this I hope you will playing along our challenges. And, you can bet that my team mates has created some wonderful cards for you for more inspirations. Please check  out their creations:

Second, I made a  flower tag for There She Goes Stamp "April Shower May Flowers" challenge. Basically create any project with shower (or water) or flower theme.

You can check out the challenge detail and find more inspiration from the other Trendsetter at There She Goes blog.

Thank you for stopping by here and as always I really do appreciate your support and your comments. Hugs, xo
