JUGS #156 - Say It With Numbers

JUGS 157

Since there are five weeks in September, this week's Just Us Girls challenge is a "Wild Card" challenge.  Lisa is our host, and her challenge is to use numbers on your card.

When I think of using numbers on cards, my mind immediately goes to my PTI number dies.  Love them!!  The numbers are big and make a statement, but have a wonderful shape to them so you can make them stand out or blend in depending on the look you are going for.

Having just celebrated a whole swack of family birthdays last weekend, my mind must have been on the fact one of my kids will be 13 next year because that is the number that popped into my head.  Think I must be subliminally thinking about the reality of teenagers in the house....gulp!!   Add that to the fact that the GenSoy bar I was eating inspired the colour combo (it is a chocolate mint flavor) and you have my state of mind when I was creating this card LOL!  Think it may be best if you head on over to the Just Us Girls blog to check out what the other team members have created for your inspiration as mine is going downhill fast LOL!  Then put on your creative number hat, create a card and link it to the JUGS blog for the chance to be selected as Chick of the Week :)

Thanks for popping by and have a wonderful weekend!

I love those numbers (where is my list)and the big sentiment is great, too. Awesome card.

I'm thinking you are going to really enjoy those teenage years...fingers crossed.

I don't see your creative spirit waning Marisa! This is so pretty. I love the color palette and design. The maple leaf is so in season right now too! I love those PTI dies too!

This is a wonderful 13th birthday card! So fresh and fun. Ahhh, to be 13 again - all the world before you. Having teenagers in the house is so fun - I have one left and I am hanging on to her as hard as I can (when she lets me). Hugz!
