A great colour combo for us to work with this week, and I was thrilled these wonderful Stella and Rose MME papers were the perfect match.
I used an MFT sketch and Verve's Birthday To You Plain Jane and added the secondary "enjoy" sentiment from Small Celebrations. A bit of distressing around the edges to give it a bit of oomph and finished things off with some twine and a button.
The rest of the JUGS team along with our July Guest Designer, Rebekka Reed, 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 using the sketch 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 Designer.
We had a smoking hot week here on the West Coast and many of us were melting! We don't have AC here for in reality, we only need it about one to two weeks a year. Well, this was one of the week LOL! Hot and humid is an understatement. Daily highs around 32C (96F) and no wind for three of those days made for some sticky days. But, it sure is nice being able to go outside at 9 p.m. at night in your shorts and a t-shirt and not worry about it getting cold.
