HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful holiday season! We had a nice quiet time spent at home this year. First time in two years we didn't drive the 12 hour trip back to Illinois. As much as I missed my family, NOT driving cross country, with our dog, on Christmas Day, was a gift in itself! LOL!
So, along with a new year, the JUST US GIRLS blog has a new look! I love the soft aqua color, and the font, and the design! Nancy did a fantabulous job with creating our 'new do'! She also happens to be your hostess this week. Since it's Word Week, she's picked "THANK YOU" to help give you a head start on making those thank you cards you know you'll be needing. ☺ Here's the card I made:
Here is the inside:
I tried doing a little more water coloring. (I still need a lot of practice!) I colored directly onto the stamps, spritzed with water, and stamped onto my die cut water color paper. I popped it on to a die cut frame before adding it to my card. Added a couple sentiments and I was done. ☺
I hope to see you play along with week at Just Us Girls! We have not one, but two guest designers joining us this month: Vicki Parsons and Deepti Malik. Welcome ladies! Remember, if you win Chic of the Week for any of our January challenges, you'll be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of March! Good luck and happy crafting!
It's the last one. Sniff.
