I used Verve's second May sketch with this week's colours (plus my added touch of black and cream neutrals). The sketch was making me think I really do need to get some doilies...I have managed to put it off to date as I'm not a huge fan of them, but I think the need to succumb is in order as one would have been fabulous on this card. Can you tell I do not like to follow trends that aren't "me". Yes...I'm stubborn that way LOL!
Deepest Sympathy Plain Jane and stamped it on Verve's Curvy Bookplate Die and layered it over my lacy circle nestability. Added a touch of cream and black neutrals to the mix and rolled a few roses to finish things off.
The rest of the JUGS team has some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so 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 Chic of the Week.
Have a fabulous weekend everyone! My son has a soccer tournament so we will be spending a lot of time at the soccer pitch. Thankfully, due to late morning or early afternoon games, I will also manage to get a few sleep in days as I really do need them!! Life is slowly getting back to normal as mom is doing better every day, and the push to get the big job for hubby done is just a few days away from completion - yeah! Added bonus: we get a long weekend!
Thanks for popping by today and if all goes well, I will be much more consistent with my posting.
