Just Us Girls GD spot comes to an end


I have really enjoyed  being the Guest Designer at 
this month !!

This week we are focusing on a picture inspiration, and here it is...

I admit, I love clocks.  I have dozens in my home, three on the mantel alone.

And I have a TON of clock things in my papercraft supply too.
Paper, stamps, emboss folders, little metal watches and clocks. 
I enjoy a clock challenge almost more than any other.

Here is my JUGS card this week ...

 and inside ...

Both interior tapes are actual scotch tape.  

For Christmas stocking shopping, Dom and I stopped at a local drugstore down near the University of Oregon.  This little shop is crammed full of the most wonderful things, things you may never see anywhere else.  They had one little aisle devoted to scrapbooking, and I found three kinds of this "vintage" tape there.  Never have seen it anywhere else.  All three combined, $1.99.  A deal for sure, and something really fun.

Hope your Christmas was amazing !  Maybe you have a little down time this week ??  If so, pop in over at Just Us Girls, and join in this last challenge of the year !!

A color challenge this week, and here it is !

What beautiful colors, and together I think they make for a lovely Christmas card.

Here is this week's project.

And inside, some washi tape and a little rusty metal tree !

Very simple card.  Don't those colors look great together !

Stop by Just Us Girls this week - I am dying to see how everyone uses these beautiful colors !!

Hope you are all set for the holidays.  One week left.  Whew.

Just Us Girls 219


I am continuing through the month as the Guest Designer at 

If you have never visited this challenge, you absolutely must !  The gals have a different type of challenge each week, and there is something for everyone !  

This week we are using a faux silk technique.  It isn't difficult, but still takes some experience to look as gorgeous as their cards are. 

Hope to see you there !!
