Happy Father's Day

Here are some challenges I participated in this week, as well as some Father's Day cards.

When I saw this week's "Tuesday Trigger: Rainbow Bright", I instantly thought "WOW"...lots of color - not something I'm used to, but hey, let's have some fun...and here's what I came up with:

This week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge is "Color Blocking"...I confess, I had a hard time with this.  I just really didn't know how I was going to use Color Blocking, and still have a CAS card.  Here's what I finally came up with.
And we can't forget about Father's Day.  Here are some cards for the men in my life.

Live well,
