Just Us Girls #45 sketch challenge + CTD104....just sayin "hi"


Happy saturday!  Time for some sketch fun with Just Us Girls!  Plus, I was super inspired by the sunny colors from the Throwdown girls this week.  Check it...

I ended up flipping the sketch to suit my elements and that is what is so great about sketches...versatility!

A little about this card....The super sweet mason jar stamp came to me via my sweet friend Elise/Mamacow Creations.  She just has a heart of gold and she knows how to make a girl feel like a treasured friend.  One day we were sitting in her Scrapland (love!) and she says something to  the effect of "hey look over there under that shelf" and what to my wondering eyes do appear, but the sweetest little stamp set called "Country Morning"! and it was for ME she says!  Awwww, girl!  You da best!  You may not know this about me, but I am a little bit country, as the song goes, and the images in this set are adorable!  Along with the mason jars above, there is a cute chicky and a hen and egg basket combo plus a fabulous sentiment about gratitude and joy.  So, in thanks, a card dedicated to my friend who knows me oh so well!  HI, friend!
I also want to point out that cute up down scalloped edge.  It's a NEW cut file from Kelleigh Ratzlaff! Scalloped Borders.  Love this!

Oh so pretty Dana! So sweet of your friend to share her goodies! Love the addition of the eyelet trim :)

{I KNOW her! I KNOW HER!!!!}

Woopsie! It's ME! Awwww, shucks, sweet lil' Dane! You're a peach! To think that you gave me any sort of credit in a post, SO dripping with 100% pure DANA-MAGIC! I'm humbled. It reminds me of a time - always after midnight... When a couple of rabid scrapbookers got each other SO inspired to kick out some MAJOR creative magic! AND this is THAT kind of goooood, my friend. The landscape of where and HOW we do it may have changed... But our inspiration and FRIENDSHIP are SOOOOOO much stronger for the journey! SO THERE!

This card is AMAZING! You are ON TOP of your game, my friend! YEEE HAW!
