JUST US GIRLS #327 - Photo Week


Hello and welcome! I'd say good morning, but I live in the Baltimore, MD area, and we are being slammed with a blizzard. So, not so good a morning. LOL!

It's Photo week at JUST US GIRLS, and Sharyn has this fun picture for you to be inspired by. (Because, right about now, I am sooooo ready for some warmer weather!) Here is how I interpreted the photo:


 Here is the inside:

I like using unconventional colors for a holiday, and you can't get much farther away from red and pink than this! After I die cut the heart, I stamped the anchor in white ink, sprinkled white embossing powder over it, and heat embossed it. It didn't give a really good cover, so I drew over the anchor with a VersaMark marker, and repeated the process. MUCH better! Both the anchor and sentiment below saw ink for the first time. Yay me for using my stash!

Now it's your turn. Simply make a card or project based off of the photo and link it up at Just Us Girls! While there, please check out what my other teammies, and our Guest Designers - Deepti and Vicki - have made, and leave them some bloggy love! Remember, if you are picked as 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!

For those of you on the east coast being effected by Jonas the Blizzard, stay safe and warm!
