Just Us Girls #202

JUGS 200 photo JUGS202PicA.jpg

This week's challenge is brought to us by Vicki and monochromatic blues it is to be!  I'm don't gravitate towards blue very often as it isn't a colour that does much for me, but love I must say, I had great fun making this card :)   That's why these challenges are so much fun, because they stretch you out of your comfort zone or your rut and it never ceases to amaze me what it causes one to create!

When I think of blue I think of a baby boy card, so that is the venue I pursued.  Love Verve's To The Moon set and this delightful Emery Plain Jane.  I used lots of embossing folders to add texture, paper pieced Emery twice, once for the body and one more time for his head to add extra dimension, and finished things off with a couple of blue buttons.   I must say, I am quite happy with the outcome :)

The rest of the  JUGS team has some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so head 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 chosen as the Chic of the Week.  

Going to be a quiet week on the blog next week as the kids and I are off to Summerland in the Okanagan Valley to do some camping with good friends of ours (will be waving to you Moe!).  Hubby is gladly staying home as he is not a camper and it's just moms with kids up there LOL!  Have a fabulous week everyone!

You, my friend, can make the most pretty cards in whatever format is thrown at you! Why you don't 'do blue' is beyond me. As this card proves, you can take any colour and turn it into a gorgeous creation! xxx
