Some News To Share
Just Us Girls (JUGS) Design Team member! I thoroughly enjoyed my month as their guest designer this past March, and now I get to play along every week as part of this amazing team. Every Saturday evening I will be posting my take on the JUGS challenge of the week and hopefully luring you to participate LOL!
This week's challenge is a sketch brought to us by Lynn Magnan. For some reason I was in the mood for a heart and that morphed into my going somewhat to the distressed side - eeek! Not my normal style, and a far cry from truly shabby, but a fun departure from my norm.
Love this Echo Park paper and I up-cycled a Starbucks sleeve by using Verve's Jotted Heart die on it. A bit of lace, twine, a flower and some pearls completed the package. Tried sponging around the edges of the white but didn't look too good - or maybe it's just me not used to doing it. So, to all the shabby experts out there, let me know what I need to add to this to bring out the true shabby side - would love to learn from your expertise :)
We'd love to have you join us. Simply make a new card and add it to the Linky Tools on the JUGS blog by 9:00 p.m. EST on Thursday, July 12 and you could win the Chick of the Week award. If you are using a public gallery, please use the keyword JUGS144.
For more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team, head on over to the JUGS blog. You also get to enjoy this month's guest designer, Esther's card.
Have a fabulous week and I'll be back next Friday night with our next challenge.
