A Just Us Girls Sketch Challenge!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!  I'm hoping everyone started off the year in a happy fashion.  We celebrated Shannon's birthday - and spent a quiet evening home together.  We watched the ball drop in Times Square, shared a smooch, and then called it a night.  Gone are the days of partying until the wee hours of the morning - lol.

We had a quiet day for the first of the year, and I think that's a good way to start it off. 

But, enough about me -- it's time for a Just Us Girls Challenge!

This week, our hostess is the lovely Lisa Kind.  She came up with this great sketch to work with:



 I decided to combine it with this week's Stamp TV color challenge, of pink, brown, and white. 




Unfortunately, I think I got a little too close to the embossing powder with my heat gun, and the sentiment is a little messy, but I'm still lovin' this.  Some of my favorite colors, combined with this fun sketch -- how can you lose?

I hope that you get a chance to play along this week - I'd love to get the chance to see what you do with the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by week after week, and checking in.  Be sure to see what the rest of the team has come up with -here are some links to get you started --

 and our January Guest Designer Gabby Arriaza

stay tuned...the grand opening of My Time Made Easy is coming soon!!!!! ;).
