Happy Saturday!!

When I started this week, it felt like it would never end -- and then suddenly POOF!  Here we are at the weekend.

Saturday's here on my blog are devoted to some of my favorite ladies...the Just Us Girls Challenge team.

Today's challenge is a 3-D template challenge, and this week WE HAVE A SPONSOR!!  Lauren Meader has graciously offered to be our sponsor this week!!

So, for one lucky participant, you will receive a $25 gift certificate to My Time Made Easy, just for playing along!  Make SURE to post a link to your project on the Mr. Linky on the Just Us Girls blog to be eligible to win.

As a BONUS -- Lauren has shared some new product with the DT this week, and you all get to see some sneak peeks from Lauren's upcoming release on 2/1.

So, without further adieu, here's my project for this week:


I used the Happy Mail template, and made it a little bird house.  I had seen some cute birdhouses that were in the shape of a mailbox in Lancaster, PA a while back...very cute stuff.

That pretty patterned paper on the box and the card are from Love Notes, a new collection of digital papers that will be released, and that adorable birdie is from the "Critters With Heart" stamp set.  This is a super cute set -- perfect for little treats for your little ones and their classmates -- and not just for valentine's day -- they're great for all occasions - birthday, just because, thinking of you...

Go take a look at what the rest of the DT has made, as well as our Guest designer, Gabby Arriaza...they're all done an incredible job with this new template!
We're off to do a little shopping (nothing FUN, just food and that kind of boring stuff - lol) and then out to dinner with some of the greatest people I know tonight!  Looking forward to it.

Have a great day...and thanks for stopping by!!

 
Supplies:
Stamps: Critters With Heart (My Time Made Easy)
Ink: Memento Black
Paper: So Saffron, Aqua Mist, Floral pp from Love Notes (MTME)
Accessories: MS border punch (double loop), pearls, flower punches, white chiffon ribbon
