PIO #28 - Water

We've got a new challenge at Pile It On.  This week the theme is "Water".  2013 is the International year of Water Cooperation.  Now if you're as ill informed as me you're probably saying to yourself "what the heck is the year of water cooperation?"  I can't let stuff like that go so I did a search to find out what it is.  If you're interested here's a link to one of the sites that will tell you about it.  

Now back to our challenge.  This week we're sponsored by Jellypark Friends.  The winner will be able to pick 2 digis from the store (with the exception of the fund raiser images).  I can't say enough good things about Jellypark Friends.  I love the images.  I can sit and color these images for hours on end. There's an image for any kind of card or project you want to make.  When you visit the store your cart will be full in no time.  

To be in the running for the prize you just have to make a card with the theme of "water" and link it up to Pile It On and at least one other challenge.  So go get your crafting stash out and get busy.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Jellypark Friends Mermaid; My Favorite Things "Daring Dots" and "Washi Patterns"
ink - printer for image; My Favorite Things "Razzleberry" and "Kraft" for backgrounds
paper - My Favorite Things "Kraft", "Blu Raspberry" and "Razzleberry" card stock; Stampin' Up "So Saffron" card stock
miscellaneous - copics; stickles; baker's twine; sand dollar charm; Cuttlebug embossing folder
