Just Us Girls #62 sketch...{Merry Christmas}

Yay!  It's sketch challenge time with Just Us Girls!  The talented Alicia has worked up a FUN sketch this week I am sure will inspire you like it did me!

Ca-ute huh?  I love the festive banner on this one!
I went wintery with a fun K&Co paper and chipboard embellies set from my local Joann's.  I punched snowflakes with a lovely lacey Martha Stewert snowflake punch, inked with Distress Tea Dye ink and adorned them with gorgeous Want 2 Scrap green pearl bling!  Oh YUM!  Glittery holiday picks and a hand stained bow of seam binding top off this card.
Aren't these sweet birds just darling?  I hardly even noticed them until I leaned in close to spy a good place to add a little wintery stickles.  Kinda looks like a mama with her two baby birds!  I wonder why I would think that?  ;)

So, are you ready to P-L-A-Y???  Be sure and check out all the details at Just Us Girls and don't forget to check out our December guest designer, the wonderful, the fabulous, the uber talented slinger of blogland "yeeeeee-haws!"...my dear friend, Elise Durenberger of Mamacow Creations!  So excited to be joining forces with her this month!  To that I say, well, what else?  YEEEEEE-HAW!

Oh, MY heavens! LOOK, oh JUST loooook at this breath taking collection of CHRISTMAS goodness! {SUCH a "Dane" card!} - I'm nostalgic and humming a little something from the ELF sound track, in spite of myself! hee hee This is EXQUISITE! Kinda makes me wonder WHAT else I don't "see" at Joann's! The fact that you identified those DARLING lil' birdies at the bottom of the "25" was like some kind of brain teaser: OH, THAT'S what they ARE! ADORABLE! {It's like MAGIC! Boom!} DELIGHTED and honored BEYOND description to be a part of the fine JUGS team this month!

So, for now... {wait for it....}

YEEEEEEEEE HHHHHAAAAAAWWWWW! :o)
