FTTC171 Thanks for the Memories....and some pictures!!!

Happy Tuesday!

Hope you all had a great weekend? Sarah's Confirmation turned out beautifully! She did a really good job leading the church sermon with our pastor. I have some pictures for you all on the bottom of this post.

We have a new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge  ~ FTTC171 for you. Mona is our hostess this week and she has challenged us to create a *THANK YOU* card or tag.



I decided to make a *Father's Day* thank you card using the What a Catch Set. The image was inked in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with these Copic Markers ~ B000, B00, B69, YG91, R59 and Colorless Blender.





My card was also combined with this weeks Color Q ~ CQC139 and The Paper Players Sketch #97. Please make sure to swing by their blogs to see all the details.


Now it's time to check out the rest of the team ~ Cindy, Maki, Heather, Mona, Beate, Amanda and our May Guest Designer Marie Oberg.

As promised here are a few pictures from Sarah's Confirmation Day.....sorry some of the pics came out a bit blurry :(
