Here's a card I'm sharing as your Card Captain today for the enjoyMichaelStrongstamps Yahoo Group.I made this clean and simple card for my swimming tutor.
She actually made me feel like a fish in the water (and also taught me another swimming style), and she asked for a hand-made card attached to her gift.
The Fish somehow seemed most appropriate.

Striped patterned paper from my stash
