Just Us Girls #222 - Sketch Challenge

JUGS 222 photo JUGS222picA.jpg  

Welcome to our first challenge of 2014!  This week's sketch is hosted by Nancy.  

I dug out MME's In Bloom paper pack, a PTI doily and heart from recycle bin and added a button and some flowers.  The sentiment is from Verve's Words Cannot Express set (love the sentiments in this set and the font was a perfect fit for the paper).

The rest of the  JUGS team, along with our January  Guest Designer Geraldine Bailly , 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.

Planning on enjoying our last weekend before school starts again and life gets back into full swing.  It's been one of the best Christmas vacations we have ever had and I will remember it fondly for years to come :)
