Hey there! I'm up on the Poppystamps blog today. I'm sharing a card using this new background die. Holy smokes, isn't it fabulous!


Just Us Girls #699 ~ Your Kindness Means so Much


Happy Saturday! This is CASE a Design Team Member week at Just Us Girls. Pop over to the blog, pick out which design team member's card inspires you and than get crafty. It's as simple as that!

I created my card with the English Garden Washi set from Pinkfresh. After playing around with placement, I stamped the sentiment (PTI) then glued everything into place. I just love the pretty little butterfly in this set!

The hubs and I have been taking long walks the last few evenings. This card reminds me of the blooms that are hanging in there as the season changes. Our weather is supposed to warm back up to 80 for a few days. So I suppose they'll be around just a little longer. I don't mind!

I sure hope to see your card in our gallery this week. Remember that if you win Chic of the Week in any of our September challenges, you are in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of November. 

Have a great weekend!


Just Us Girls #698 ~ You're Amazing

It's CAS week at Just Us Girls where our host Sue is looking for SPORTS themed cards. I really had to put my thinking cap on for this one. I don't have anything sports themed in my arsenal! Here's what I did...

I used a circle die and Tombow marker to create my own softball. The cover die reminded me of chain link fence! Isn't this sentiment from The Stamp Market fun! Now you might be questioning the color of my ball. Check out the big softball in Sweet P's hand!

She played in her first softball league this year and the balls were lime green with blue stitching! At 8 years old, it was a learning league where they played all positions. She also attended several pitching clinics offered and boy oh boy, she found her jam on the mound! The little stinker even made the All Star Team! She'll move up to a new league in the spring and can't wait!

Thanks for sticking with this proud gramma!! 

We hope you'll join us this week!



There's a pretty little house in the Poppystamps neighborhood. I've jazzed her up just in time for Halloween. Pop over to check it out!

Just Us Girls #697 ~ Sweater Weather

Hello lovelies! Carol has a wonderful autumn mood board for us this week at Just Us Girls. I was inspired by the apples and leaves.

I pulled some paper from an autumn 6x6 pad to cut the PTI apple. I used a piece of plaid from the pad for the background. The pie crust was my inspiration for the leaves (PPP). A little ink smooshing gave me the look I wanted. The sentiment was snipped from the 6x6 pad too. A loopy twine bow and we're good to go!

We can't wait to see how you're inspired this week. 

The gallery is sure to be a warm and cozy one!
