JUGS March Guest Designer



I have the great joy of being the Guest Designer for JUGS (Just Us Girls) for the month of March!!  Thank you so much ladies for the wonderful invitation to join you :)  


This week is sketch week and it is a nice and simple one which you can dress up or keep CAS.  Love this type of sketch!!  I went with a dressed up version as I wanted to use flowers and that wide open space was calling their name LOL!  

I paired the sketch with CR84FN's colour combo from last week as I really liked it but ran out of time to play along.  The lavender, green and grey are fabulous together!  Out came my PTI flower die (loooove this die!) and new tag sale die (grin) along with Verve's Flutterby die.  Still hooked on my new Martha Stewart vintage floral border punch so had to throw that in as well LOL! 

Would love it if you came an played along with us this week.  Simply complete a card and submit it via the Linky Tools at the bottom of the JUGS Challenge post by Thursday, March 8th at 12:00 PM Eastern Time.  If you don't have a blog you can post it to an on line gallery using the Key Word JUGS126.  Then hold your breath for the Chick of the Week award - it could be you!

I'll be back next Friday with a new challenge.  Thanks for popping in!

Stamps:  Kind Words (Verve), French Script (SU)
