Today is a bitter sweet day. I get to host today's challenge, which is always fun, but it will also be my last challenge as a Just Us Girls Design Team member.
With my new, part time job, filling in at hubby's office the days I'm not working there, and mom requiring more of my time as she recovers from her fall and gains her strength back, not to mention dearly missing regular workouts, there are just not enough hours in a day get everything done. It has been a wonderful couple of years and I will definitely miss working alongside all the wonderful and talented ladies on this team.
Now on to the challenge! It has been forever since I made a round card, so that was my shape of choice for this challenge. I needed a sympathy friend for a friend who just lost their father the new Framed Florals being release by Verve Stamps tomorrow was a perfect fit. Best part is the bluebells have a matching die!
The rest of the JUGS team along with our fabulous August Guest Designer, Kristie, 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. Simply create a card and link it up to the JUGS blog for a chance to be chosen as the Chic of the Week. Remember, if you are chosen as Chic of the Week, you could be invited to be a Guest.
Have a great weekend! Mine will be busy. My son is in another soccer tournament and we also have a wedding to attend. Think Labour Day Monday will be a very low key day for all of us LOL!
