JUST US GIRLS #261: Word Week!

Hello crafty peeps! Happy World Card Making Day! And what better day for my official start as a DT member over at JUST US GIRLS! I'm so excited to be a part of this talented team! This week's challenge is a word challenge, and that word is:

This is such a versatile word. You can base your card or project on Birthdays, Anniversaries, Holidays, etc. See? Very versatile! Here's the card I came up with:

And here's the inside:

Lately, I've been experimenting coloring with Prismacolor pencils on kraft paper, and I really love the look of it! I used both sides of designer paper on this. The top part I stamped all over with that cute bottle, with a strip of pinked die cut kraft to separate both papers. That crocheted mat was a gift from the fabulous Jessi Fogan! I used various word and alpha stamps to create the inside sentiment, with another bottle to complete it. (I'm really not sure if I spelled the word "witch's" correctly. I even Googled it - and there were three different spellings to choose from! GRRRR!) Well, I just picked this version. (My apologies to the Grammar Police if this is wrong.) LOL!

Now it's your turn! We can't wait to see what you create, just link it up over at Just Us Girls! While there, please be sure to check out what my teammies and our guest designer, Wanda Cullen, dreamed up to inspire you!

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope that you have a fantastic day!
