Mexican Train June 15-21

Dispel the Monday blues with this Monday morning to Sunday night challenge.

Moderator: Ellie

As Mexican Train is played with dominoes, always starting with a double, your challenge is to use the sketch of 1/2 of my card and use that, then do anything but the same/opposite of it for the bottom of your card. No doubles but mine.

The sketch:

You don't have to use frogs, or even the same shapes, but you need to use the sketch for the top of your card. There are any number of things you can use for the bottom of yours. I'll do a random drawing of everyone who posts their creation using the sketch for only the top of their card and posts it by midnight on Sunday, June 21, 2020.

Participants:
1. Barry
2. Elaine

My friends, this one is easy.

1. Take the sketch at the top of the original post and make that the top of your card.
2. Do whatever you want at the bottom.
3. Only exception is that you can't do the same sketch at the bottom.

We're playing dominoes.

I walked the dog over to my house and had a little play time! This is some adorable paper that Trudi sent me for a prize!

Barry and Elaine fantastic looking cards...you both use great background papers for your cards...well done

I don't know if I lost my mojo for making cards but I haven't been in the craft room at all...maybe next week.

Winner is posted.

Terrie, give yourself time to heal and I'm sure your desire to create will return.
