Just Us Girls #164

Photobucket


This week's fabulous Inspiration picture is brought to us by Vicki!  Just love this winter scene :)

I immediately thought of using some of MME's wood panel paper and my Spellbinder's poinsettia die.  I sponged the poinsettia a bit and popped up all three layers - love a full poinsettia LOL!  The focal panel needed a little something so added a button and some black half pearls to fill in the gap.

For some inspiration to get you going, just hop on over to the Just Us Girls blog, and check out what the Design Team and our November Guest Designer Jan Del Bone have created.  Then put your creative genes to work and add your card or project to the challenge post on the JUGS blog for the chance to be selected as Chic of the Week.


Trusting all you American bloggers had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We truly have so, so much to be thankful for!  In the spirit of Thanksgiving, thank you to all of you who come and visit my little corner of cyber world :)  Have a great weekend!
