Sharon is our hostess this week at Just Us Girls and her color choice is perfect for me since I need to get some Christmas cards done!
Come on over to JUGS to see what our Guest Designer - Louise Hodge and the rest of the JUGS Design Team have created with this beautiful colors.
Stamped and heat embossed the image with gold ep then colored in with Inktense Watercolor pencils and a waterbrush. The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed with a warm red ep. I couldn't decide if I should layer green or red beneath the main panel and totally switched gears and added Versamark all around the edge of the layer and heat embossed with gold ep to match the image perfectly.
Now it's your turn to come on over to Just Us Girls and play along with our Color Challenge. You could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week which would then make you eligible to become our next Guest Designer! Please limit your entries to 3.

Another sympathy card. I don't like having to need so many of these lately.
The tag is die cut from ivory cardstock then I dragged my Golden Glitz ink pad across it. Stamped the leaves and sentiment and tied on some raffia and gold cord. Stamped a script background strip down the side with Memento Soft Sand ink.
Playing along with a few challenges this week
CASual Fridays - Precious Metals
The Male Room - Sympathy or Remembrance
And CAS on Sunday - Tag It!
Thanks for dropping by!

Maria is challenging us this week at Just Us Girls to use Watercoloring on our creations.
Come on over to Just Us Girls to see what our November Guest Designer, Louise Hodge and the rest of the JUGS Design Team have done with watercolor.
Colored the flowers with Distress Markers, misted and stamped on watercolor paper. Then added more water with a paintbrush for the colors to bleed a little more. After it completely dried, stamped the sentiment with Memento Espresso Truffle ink. Layered on some dark brown cardstock with the edges distressed and onto an artichoke base.
Now it's your turn to play with some watercolor. You could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week which would then make you eligible to become our next Guest Designer! Please limit your entries to 3.

Squeezing this one in last minute for the challenge at The Male Room.
Stamps are by Gina K, colored with Touch Twin markers. The chain is colored with a silver Sakura Stardust gel pen. Die cut the "porthole" using Spellbinders circle dies and added the eyelets, attached to the anchor circle with pop dots.

It's my turn again to host the challenge this week for our Word Week at Just Us Girls and the word is "Stripes". Let's see some stripes on your creations!
It's the start of a new month and that means a new Guest Designer! Welcome Louise Hodge, our November Guest Designer!!! Come on over to the JUGS blog to see what Louise and the rest of the talented Design Team have done with "Stripes" this week.
This card was inspired by Bobby! Love this technique. I used navy and white cardstock, stamped the balloon, added some clear Wink of Stella and die cut it, then added the baker's twine string. I decided to add some wooden stars from my stash.
Now it's your turn to show us some stripes! You could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would then make you eligible for a chance at being our next Guest Designer! Please limit your entries to 3.

This month we have a 5th week, so that means that it's Wild Card time at Just Us Girls! Sharyn is our hostess and has challenged us to make a one layer card.

I stamped and masked the poinsettias from Gina K A Year of Flowers on kraft, then colored with Prismacolor markers. The sentiment is heat embossed with gold ep, which is hard to see in the photo, but stands out nicely irl.
