Just Us Girls!


I'm here today to talk about the 'Just Us Girls' challenges. 

The first challenge was last week -- a sketch.  Each week a different team member will host a challenge, and this week, Pam is the host on the 'Just Us Girls' blog, and here's the Challenge:

The 'girls' asked me to be a part of their team, and I'm proud to play along side this talented group of women.

Here's my card for this week's challenge:

The image and sentiments are from a set called 'Girls Night Out' by My Favorite Things.  Kim's sets are GREAT for paper piecing.  I used a few of the sentiments to make a patterned paper for the Berry Sorbet layer.  punched the bottom edge with my apron lace border punch, added some ribbon and a charm, and voila!  Cute and simple (well, except for the cutting for the paper piecing!)

Be sure to check out the challenge blog -- there's lots of info there, including a schedule of upcoming challenges, links to the rest of the team, the Mr. Linky to link YOUR projects (use keyword JUGS2) and a CAH-UTE blinkie to grab for your blog too! 

Looking forward to seeing what YOU create!

Pretty card Tracey! Great job with the paper piecing challenge! Your card makes me want to get together with a girlfriend & share a glass of Merlot! I feel very fortunate to be on the JUGS DT with you & all the other JUGS DT girls! :)

Oh this is so cute Tracey! I love the sassy going out shirts you paper pieced. I think if I dig deep, I have a couple of those in my closet somewhere! LOL If I find one, I'll meet you for a GNO OK?

OOOOh Tracey - the first thing that caught my eye was the CHARM - I have not used a charm on a card in a long time and forgot just how "charming" it can be. This card is perfect for a Just Us GIRLS challenge LOL. I'm tickled pink that you used some pink, too. Great to have you on the team - rock on!! Hugs n smiles.

Tracey!!! I LOVE your card! You are so right, her images are perfect for paper piecing! I LOVE the paper you used for the ladies' shirts and I LOVE LOVE LOVE how you pieced the ladies in front of the brown swirly paper!! That was sooo clever! Oh, and the wine looks good enough to drink :) Save me a glass, girly!
