None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Clean and Simple! - Gettin' Fishy with it!

Thought for the Day
Find someone who knows that you're not perfect but treats you as if you are!

Good morning!
Today is Super Bowl Sunday and we woke up to so much fog we can barely see across the street.
Haven't seen this phenomena since we moved into this house over 10 years ago and still had quite a bit of actively farmed land around us.
Kinda eerie actually as the wind is not moving - at all - so the normal sounds of nature and neighborhood activity is practically non existent.

Suppose to burn off though and be a nice clear day which will be nice after several days of cloud cover and almost non stop rain. (still take that over almost non-stop snow!)

Today is also the start of a new CAS challenge at The Outlawz. 


We have had several changes on the team in the last month with the leaving of Charlene for other adventures and the arrival of Donna to take her place.
We also now have our very own monthly sponsor for the CAS challenge and this month it's (me!) Through the Craft Room Door with a 1 year subscription to the magazine!


Today is my turn to post the challenge and since one of the zodiacs of February is Pieces ,,, a fish! ,,, We want to see you cards and projects with sea critters on them.
Remember! Have fun and keep it CAS!

Here is my Fishy card!
I started this A2 card by creating the bubbly background with a stencil and lightly sponging here and there to get a random bubble look.
Then I stamped my sentiment and image, colored them up  with watercolor crayons and layered the whole shebang on white card stock.

Supplies
Card stock from The Paper Studio, American Craft and my stash
Sentiment from Inkahootz!
Image from "Fishy Friends" by Stampin Up!
Black India ink from Memories
Water Color Crayons & Blender pen from Stampin Up!
"Bubble" stencil from Stampers Anonymous (Tim Holtz Collection)
Ink from Stampin Up!

Thanks for stopping by!
