Just Us Girls Challenge with PMS

>> Tuesday, January 5, 2010

Today I have a card for the Just Us Girls Challenge! Can I just say how proud of myself i was that i got this done ON saturday when the challenge was posted?! I just had too much to post on my blog, to post it yet. And my blog posts for the past 2 days have been long enough without me adding more to them! hahaha!

Here's my card...

This weeks challenge over at Just Us Girls, was a sketch posted by my girl, Lisa! Admittedly i take sketches a bit too literally! haha! But i was still pleased with out this card turned out. Maybe it's because i used new paper and embellishments. But wait, i'm not supposed to be buying anymore, i'm supposed to use what i have! Oh well, i bought this before January 1st!

The paper is by Moxxie and the ribbon is American Crafts. I picked up both at Funkie Munkie Scraps the other day when i was just stopping by to say hello and NOT buy anything!

The only thing not new on this card are the stamps. Caliope with Heart is one of the very first releases from Paper Makeup Stamps. WOuld you believe that PMS will be 1 on february 2nd?!
I cant believe my stamp baby will be 1 soon!!! Sadly, i'm not sure if i've ever used this stamp yet! Sooooo many stamps, soooooo little time. ;) The sentiment (which is hard to see in the picture but easier to see in person) is from the Monster Sentiment Set which has a lot of cute little sentiments that make boy valentine's a snap! Ok, had to put that shameless little plug in there!

Here are some detail pictures...

I used copics to color this sweet image. Deets to follow!

Here's some info taken off of the JUGS blog...
