It's time to announce our Weekly Winner and Honorable Mentions! 

  Judy had the honor of selecting the Winner for Week #104 and here is the card she selected:

Hazel's adorable pet rock is perfectly inked and super fun...placement of the image in the bottom corner is perfectly balanced by the twine bow in the upper corner.  A great CAS card in my book!

Congratulations, Hazel!

Here are the Honorable Mentions chosen by the rest of the design team:

Gillian's Choice: Shona's super sweet card bursts to life with the pop of red.

Melissa's Choice:  Rosemary's sweet, patterned bunnies stole my heart.  I love the interest the patterns create and the dimension of the white on white panel!

Ardyth's Choice: I love how Barbara 'grounded' her seahorse with text that evokes waves! So clever!

May's Choice:  I love the way Lisa created a cute frog using finger printing and hand drawing. Such a fun single layer card with lots of white space.

Tracey's Choice:  Loving the new flamingo trend. I adore the sweet watercoloured background for this sweet  couple. The embossing is a fabulous touch!

Joyce's Choice Michele F.'s card is a CAS tribute to her two cats.  I loved the simplicity of the image and sentiment and her water color washed background.
