Just Us Girls #220 - Colour Challenge

JUGS 220 photo JUGS220picA.jpg

Sue T. has chosen a yummy colour combo for us to work with this week and it gave me the perfect excuse to use my Santa's List papers again - happy sigh :)  I combined it with last week's Freshly Made sketch, which was a great one. 

Used Lil' Inkers stitched rectangles and WPlus9's "joy" die (oh how I love this die!!) one more time.  A little bling to bring out the "joy" and a holly trim finished things off.

The rest of the  JUGS team, along with our December GD 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.

Kids are off school and we are heading into the home stretch for Christmas :)   Lots of cleaning in store for this weekend along with some last minute shopping for chef hubby (he's the cook and I'm sous chef and clean up girl).     

Have a great weekend!
