Here's the Design Team:Lois, Kelli Jo, Karen , Kathy, Toni, Janine, Shirley Q, Vickie, Sandy & Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.

We'll start things off today with a card featuring Plywood.  I stamped the plywood background on the caramel color and also on vanilla.  I trimmed out my DAD sentiment and sponged the edges.  I "nailed down" my plywood with a couple of brads and finished of my panel with the father's day sentiment.

And now for a sample from Kiss Me.  This is a fun little mini set with heaps of great sentiments to go along with this frog.  This little guy is crawling out of the water and has just barely got a grip on his log...thus the "Hang on tight!" sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to come on back tomorrow for a bit more creativity.  Off you go to visit Janine

Great cards. I especially like how you have the grog image angled on a tall card. The background with the two different blues, is a great design element.
