Just Us Girls #36 with Wink Wink Ink and PDCC32

Howdy friends!  This week, Just Us Girls has joined forces with Wink Wink Ink for a sketch challenge with JUGs girl Lisa!  Wow!  What a week!  Melanie, owner of Wink Wink Ink, has generously supplied a prize for our challenge this week so you'll be sure to want to check out her cute images and then use Lisa's sketch to make something!  You can use any supplies that you choose but if you'd like to try a Wink Wink Ink image, Melanie has a freebie you can try here on the top left corner of their blog.

AND, please help us welcome two new JUGs designers!  Andrea Matthews and Kathryn Berthiaume!  We are SO excited to have them on the Just Us Girls team!

My project uses the JUGs36 sketch and the color combo #32 from Play Date Cafe


Hee hee!  Isn't Teacup Chihuahua so cutie patootie?!!?  I chose to print the line version and use paper piecing for my project.  Wink wink Ink also provides a digitally colored version of the image too so I could literally print and go as well!  I mounted my paper pieced chihuahua on a doily plus papers from Papertrey Ink and October Afternoon.  Vintage Photograph distress ink was my choice for shabby-ing this up a bit.  Also, some handmade tea stained trim plus buttons plus distress stickles to embellish.

Please stop by all of the JUGs designer blogs listed in my side bar as well as Melanie owner/designer  from Wink Wink Ink for all of the juicy project details. We love to hear what you think.  Then grab some pretty papers and perfect embellies and make something!  Be sure to share with us over at the JUGs blog.  We'll be watching to see what you make!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

SUch utter cuteness should almost be disallowed Dana - your tea cup chihuahua (SP??) is just beyond cute. Whoever gets this little guy will be tickled for sure. Great job.
