It's time for a new challenge at Just Us Girls and Bobby is hosting!

My first thought for Bobby's colors was to go in a beachy direction. 
As you can see, that didn't happen! 
After die cutting and coloring my flowers (WPlus9), I layered them onto an embossed banner with the sentiment, then onto the card base stamped with some PRS circles. A sprinkling of a few PPP Marshmallow sequins for a touch of pizazz finished things off.
I look forward to seeing in what direction the colors take you! 
You ARE playing along, right?


From Our House to Yours


Hey there! I'm popping in today with a quick CAS card for The Paper Players challenge. Take a look...

I don't think this sweet PTI house ever gets old. I jazzed it up today with some bright snippets of paper. My sentiment is an oldie but a goodie by Hero Arts and those teeny blooms are Simply Graphic. Like I said, quick and simple!

Speaking of houses, we had a bat who set him/herslf up a cozy little spot in the loft of our garden shed over the winter. The entire side of a bag of charcoal was shredded into confetti sized bits. Just the colorful part, not the inner brown bag. Go figure? The little rascal had a grand time with our patio furniture cushions and pillows. Stuffing pulled out and bat buisiness all over them. The hubs said the loft is full of bat poo.....blech! Needless to say the shed is getting a good wash down and those cushions went bye bye!


A Little Silliness




What a fun challenge Carol has for us this week!
It pushed me out of my comfort zone and into this little bit of silliness for our Just Us Girls challenge!

My card base was made using an old Spellbinders Labels die. The silly chicks and patterned papers are all leftovers from The 12 Kits of Occasions. These were also cut with the label die then added to the card front. That wee bit of strawberry paper (so pretty!) was glued on and hand trimmed. The sentiment was just the right size to fit the PPP label die. If you look closely, you'll see the score line at the top to make the card easy to open.

Okay, put on those thinking caps and have some fun!




Hey there, it's time for a new Just Us Girls challenge! Vicki is our hostess for word week and she picked Flowers (see what I did there ~ hee!) We also have a guest designer joining us this month! Please stop by and say hello to Deborah Wheeler!

Flowers... so many choices!

I recently bought this Hollyhocks die (Impression Obsession) and it turned out to be a marvelous filler for my pretty  flower wrap (Simply Graphic)! They were die cut them from colored cardstock then a little Copic coloring was added to the centers. It needed just a touch more some something, so I tucked in a small scallop border. Voila, I love it!

Our gallery is sure to be a beautiful flower garden this week. I hope to see some blooms of yours included!


Wild Card Week




Hey there, it's Wild Card week at Just Us Girls!

Are you ready for some sparkle? 

Hang on to your hats... here we go!


This is the card front. It's a mini slimline.

I made my card several weeks ago after purchasing Pinkfresh Studio's Sweet Friend Floral stamps and dies. I've paired them with the Color Block Rainbow die. I have to admit, the rainbow die gave me fits when I first got it last year. Don't know why, but I forced myself to break it out again and I'm so happy I did!


The inside of the card.

See how the rainbow arches from the front of the card to the inside! More flowers and clouds (PPP) along with a sparkly sun.


The back of the card.

The rainbow from the inside arches to the back!



More pictures... sorry! 

I wanted you to see how those rainbows flow.

Still with me?
