Just Us Girls #218 - Sketch Challenge

JUGS 218 photo JUGS218picA.jpg

It's time for a sketch challenge over at Just Us Girls, and Maria is our host with this sketch for us to work with.

In my continued Christmas card theme, I dipped into MME's Merry Little Christmas pack.  It is a fun pack to use for non-traditional colours.  Love this PTI snowflake die and WPlus9's "JOY" die.  Had a hard time deciding between a pink or blue heart to put on the "o" and finally settled on blue.

The rest of the  JUGS team, along with our December Guest Designer Jan Del Bone, have some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so head on over to the Just Us Girls blog and check out what they've 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.  Plus if you are chosen as Chic of the Week, you could be invited to be a Guest Designer.


It's going to be a cold weekend here (cold for us whoosy West Coast people anyway LOL).  My son has an early soccer game today and I think I'm going to wear my snow boots, hat, scarf and mittens.  Standing on the sidelines in weather like this is not fun, but I think I'll take it over the pouring rain we had last weekend.   

Wishing everyone a great weekend!

I love these nontraditional, fun colors! Those die cuts are great and I love that little blue heart on the JOY.
