Just Us Girls #707 ~ Joy

Hi there! It's time for a new challenge at Just Us Girls. This is our final challenge of 2023. The team will be taking a holiday break for the month of December and will be back with new challenges in January of 2024. This is also the last week with our November guest designer. Thanks so much for joining us this past month, Melissa, we loved having you!

Okay, now for my card!

This one has lots of circles! First up was a snowy embossed background. Then came the scalloped circle (TSM). I Copic colored and fussy cut this sweet IO snowbaby to add inside that circle. A simple PTI tiny circle tag with a simple little sentiment topped it off. Oh, and then the rhinestone... that's a circle too!

We do hope you'll join us this week.

Thanks for stopping by today!


Warmest Wishes!

I hope those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday had a blessed and happy day! I made dinner for the two of us and my parents. I must say, it was pretty yummy!  The down side of the holiday is that our little Sweet P came down with a bug. Fever, cough, ear infection... feeling pretty rough. Thankfully not Covid. We did get to FaceTime with her and I'm thankful for that

I have a couple of warm and cozy cards for you today. They both have a Piped Icing Star from Birch Press Design as their focal point. I'll be sending one over to the Inkspirational gallery for their Seasonal challenge.

I turned the stars into gingerbread cookies! More Christmas papers from my stash went onto the background for this one along with a few SG pine sprigs. A simple little Poppystmaps sentiment was all it needed.

I thought the sweet gingham paper was a good pairing for the PTI sentiment. I layered everything together with the PTI Mix & Mat Snowflake die cut.

Those cookies are making me hungry! 

Hmmm, maybe a slice of pumpkin pie will fix that!


To a Deer Friend

Hello my deer dear friends! I just wanted to pop in today with a reminder that you still have time to play along in the Poppystamps November challenge. Our theme is Woodland Wonder.

I pulled the Whittle Forest Reindeer Kit and Snowflake Loop out once again to create another inspiration card for you! All of the die cuts were layered onto a white card base and bedazzled with fairy jewels. Easy peasy!

You can find me over on the Poppystamps blog today sharing the details for my original inspiration card.

I hope you have a minute to stop by!

Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends!



Hi there! I'm sharing a Christmas card on the Poppystamps blog today. Head on over to see what I did with this pretty embossing folder by Memory Box


Merry Christmas

LeAnne is this week's hostess at The Paper Players. Her challenge is a CAS card with a tag on it. I had the perfect polka dot tag just begging to be used!

The little RC tag was in my pile of Christmas paper snippets to be used up. It was just the right size for this sweet Stacey Yacula (POD) bunny, Birch! I stamped him with kraft ink them clear embossed him and trimmed him out. A couple of holly sprigs by Simply Graphic bring out the green in his cute little hat! I thought the playful font on this DeNami sentiment suited him well.

Off this goes to the gallery. Thanks for stopping by!
