JUST US GIRLS #350 Word Week


Happy Saturday to you and welcome! Maria is your hostess this week for Word Week at JUST US GIRLS, and she's picked the perfect word: SUMMER! So what does that word call to mind when you read it? The beach? Family vacations? Visits to the zoo? Ice cream? For me, one thing that really signals that summer has really started is hearing the ice cream truck going around the neighborhood, so that was my inspiration:


Isn't that the cutest ice cream truck? I can't believe this is the first time it's seen ink! I used the now ended FMS#242 sketch for my card. The truck is colored with Spectrum Noir markers. I lucked out with finding a strip of patterned paper that had many of the colors I used to color the truck. Bonus! 

Now it's your turn. What does Summer mean to you? Why not create a card or project and link it up at Just Us Girls? We'd love to see it! While there, please check out what the Design Team, and our July Guest Designer, Carol Mayne, have come up with to inspire you, and leave them some bloggy love! Remember that if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our July challenges, you'll be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of September! Good Luck and happy crafting!

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
