JUST US GIRLS #383 Word Week

Happy Saturday, friends! Bobby is your hostess this week at
JUST US GIRLS! She's picked Geometric as your word. This should be
lots of fun! Here's what I created:

 and the inside:

I'm out of masculine birthday cards so here's one I made. It's pretty CAS for me. I broke out the 
much neglected octagon nesties for this, cutting some 'manly' papers. The beer is a sticker, actually two. I stuck them onto white card stock, fussy cut them out, and adhered them on top of each other, the second one with foam squares. Of course, with my crack photography skillz, you can't see that at all. DOH! The sentiments were lined up and stamped multiple times with my MISTI to get a 
nice dark impression.

Now it's your turn to create something with a geometric pattern to it. Be sure to link up
at Just Us Girls so we can admire it. For more inspiration, do check out what my teammies 
created. Also, since it's a new month, and we have a new Guest Designer joining us. Welcome
Nancy Salkeld! I look forward to crafting with you this month! 

Just a reminder, if you are chosen as Chic of the Week for any of our March challenges, you'll 
be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of May! Good luck, and
happy crafting!
