Just Us Girls 169
First and foremost, I want to wish a very sad farewell to Lynn. This is her last week as a Design Team member and she will be sorely missed. She is a wonderful person and stamper and her kind, genuine heart will be missed along with her wonderful CAS cards! Hugs to you Lynn!!!
Since we have five Friday's this month, today's challenge is a "wild card" challenge hosted by Maria and this week's theme is sparkle. Bring out the bling, sparkly paper, embossing powder, shimmer paper or whatever you want to add sparkle to your card! A totally fun and perfect theme for time of year :)
I used this week's Retro Sketch as it had lots of room for a big, sparkly, die cut heart :) I gleefully used my brand new PTI hearts border die and then added the hearts embossing on the focal panel. A bit of bling on each heart along with some silver twine and a silver bow all added up to a lot of sparkle all round.
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.
I'm so relaxed right now I think I'm tired LOL! One book down (Ken Follet's Winter of the World), three puzzles made and a fourth one up and running. Also have my brother and SIL heading over for a two day visit as they were away over Christmas, so it should be a great weekend :)
