Just Us Girls #167

JUGS167

This week's Just Us Girls challenge is a colour challenge and it is brought to us by Lisa.  Her colour combo of choice is white, pink and green, one of my favorites!

The papers are from a Recollections pack I picked up at Michael's earlier this year and the busy patterns have me in a bit of a tizzy lol!  I went with them anyway as I'm trying to be "braver" in my use of papers, but this "walking on the wild side" is working my subtle colour and pattern paper side over but good LOL!  

For some inspiration to get you going, just hop on over to the Just Us Girls blog, and check out what the Design Team has created.  Then put your creative genes to work and add your card/project to the challenge post on the JUGS blog for the chance to be selected as Chick of the Week.

Last soccer game of the season today and fingers crossed, the rain holds off!  My son owes his grandma a goal as she gives him a twonie per goal scored and payment came early and a bit over budget, so he has to play smart and work hard in today's game or Grandma will come collecting!  Not really, but it is fun to tease him about it ;)  


Have a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by!
