Just Us Girls # 230 - Sketch Challenge

JUGS 230 photo JUGS230jpicA.jpg

Welcome to sketch week over at Just Us Girls.  This week's sketch is brought to us by Vicki. 

I realized I haven't made any St. Patrick's Day cards yet and with three friends who are St. Patrick's Day babies and a few who are Irish, I need to get going on them!

Love this sentiment from Verve's Lucky You.  Combined it with a "heart clover" and lots of dots for a bit of fun.

The rest of the  JUGS team, along with our March Guest Designer Calypso Basitan, 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. 

The eleven inches of snow we got last weekend is slowly melting but rumour has it we may bet a bit more this weekend.  Needless to say, the kids are having a ball sledding down the hill at the school and I'm getting a good work out shovelling LOL!  Soccer games have been cancelled which means we have a free weekend to relax, much needed after a very busy one last weekend helping our friends move while it snowed!  

Have a fabulous weekend!

Hi Marisa- Stunning card!!! Love that beautiful sentiment!! We've had rain, flash floods and heavy winds for the past 3 days. It has not been fun, although that does mean snow for our mountains!! YEAH!!! Hope you enjoy your free weekend.

This looks marvelous! I like that sentiment as well. I'm not so sure that this weekend's snow will be anything like last weekend!

shamrocks always make me smile :) Left the classroom yesterday after putting up some fun books and signs :) Just wish it was longer than 2 weeks to celebrate!

That's a lot of snow you had. Glad you've enjoyed it.

Oh, I love the combination of the kraft and pops of black with the green! That is such a great sentiment, too. Love the Irish font.

Eleven inches of snow? YUCK! I think I'd rather deal with the frigid temperatures! You card: gorgeous! Again, your pairing of papers complements perfectly the images you choose. The button-sporting shamrock is simply a delight!
