Save the Fishies!


Good Monday Morning to You!
This weekend was beautiful in Seattle. DH and I went on a few walks, I spent some time with family and then Sunday I worked on swap cards all day. A little over a year ago I met this fabulous groups of ladies on SCS and soon after we formed a monthly swap group called the Sisterhood of the Traveling cards (cute, huh? *wink). This month the theme is Earth Day. So I decided to go green and use a few recycled items on my card. It was quite the task to stitch each of the plastic pop can carriers around the fish, but I am happy with the outcome.
Hope you enjoy your day today!
