JUST US GIRLS #322 - Word Week

Good morning and welcome! It's Word Week at JUST US GIRLS! Ina is your hostess and since most of us are in "all Christmas all the time" mode, she's picked the word MERRY for you to play with! Here's the card I made:

 here's the inside:

another angle shot so you can see the frame better: 

Now, I didn't come up with this myself. I saw this card by Jean Okimoto, and knew I was going to case it! Thanks Jean! Anyway, I used two square dies to make the frame. I cut the Merry twice, glued and stacked them. I masked part of a stamp to just get Christmas Wishes. Die cut some snowflakes and adhered them plus some silver sequins. So fun to make!

I hope you find some time in your Christmas crunch time to whip up a card and enter it at Just Us Girls! We'd love to see it! Please do check out what the other ladies created to inspire you! 

Since we are taking the last couple of weeks off to spend time with our families and friends for the holidays, we won't have a Guest Designer this month, but will have TWO next month! I hope to see you in the gallery this week! Thanks for stopping by!
