Just Us Girls #224 - Colour Challenge

JUGS 224 photo JUGS224picA.jpg 

This week's colour challenge is brought to us by Vicki.  I love this colour combination of kraft, marina mist and baja breeze.  Since I don't own the two blues I improvised with what I had on hand.

This Sketch Saturday sketch was a fun one as was using some PTI goodies that haven't seen ink in some time.   Dug into my stash (trying to use up what I have rather than buy new) and found these paper flowers which Michael's used to sell and they were a nice finishing touch.

Sorry, got sidelined there wink, wink.  The rest of the  JUGS team, along with our January  Guest Designer Geraldine Bailly, 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.

Busy day today with a soccer game and then a family dinner to celebrate some birthdays - mine included :)   Wishing you a great one!
