JUST US GIRLS #387 - Word Week

Good morning and welcome crafty peeps! I'm back from my little vacation. 
(I know, you didn't even know I left! LOL!) I flew back to Illinois for a week
to hand deliver the bridal shower invites I made for my niece, and to visit
with family and friends. I was constantly on the go, didn't sleep too well, and
as a result, came down with a sinus infection. Let me tell ya, flying with
one of those is no fun at all. I'm grateful for Urgent Care and the
 amoxicillin that I was prescribed. 

So let's get on with why you're really here: the Word Week challenge at
Nancy is hosting this week, and she's apparently ready for summer, (aren't we all?!) as she's
picked the word "SEA" as your inspiration.
Here's my take on it:

I haven't played with my Paper Smooches stamps and dies in a while, so I thought I'd make
a little underwater scene with some fish and that cool die. It reminds me of water bubbles.

Now it's your turn! I hope that you link up at Just Us Girls with your sea themed card or project. I'd love to see what you made! For more ideas, please check out what the Design Team came up with. I'd also like to welcome our new Guest Designer, Laurie Unger, who will be crafting with the JUGS Crew this month!

Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!
