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!
