Why I love Thursdays

Well, it used to be because of the NBC lineup. haha! Remember those good days of Must See TV?
But now I love Thursdays because it's a jump start for the weekend and...

it's challenge time over at The Digi Shack!
This week Mandy gave us yet another fun sketch:

Oooh, look at those rectangles square dancing. Get it? haha! The possibilities are brewing in your head, I can just see it. ;) I wanted to continue on a theme of Father's Day so I used an image from the newest Dad sets from the shop and came up with this:

I loved the anchor and sentiment when I first saw it, such a strong statement. I based the rest of the card around the ribbon's colors and wanted it to have a nautical feel by making the strips of ribbon wave off the card. The red layer is CB'd with the swirly folder, probably my most used folder yet. :D

I hope you come and join us, upload into any of your galleries using TDSC09 and leave a comment HERE on the blog to brag about your card and see what the rest of the Maui Wowies have done. ;) Have a wonderful Thursday everyone, Friday is coming soon!

*Love and Aloha*
