Just Us Girls #244 - Sketch Challenge

Nancy has provided us with a fun sketch for our challenge this week at Just Us Girls

We would also like to welcome our new Guest Designer for the month of June - Shirley Bampton aka Shirley-Bee!


I won some fun wooden shapes a while ago from a Mod Squad Challenge and decided not to hoard them any longer.  I layered burlap squares onto a brown piece of cardstock, then added some kraft rounded squares and the brown striped circles are punched from a box.  Used a piece of green gingham patterned paper on a kraft base.  Added a strip of green ribbon adhered with Scor-Tape and attached the folded piece of ribbon with my TH Tiny Attacher and another little bird.  Sentiment is from STAMPlorations.

Thanks to Vicki Dutcher, I now have another new blog to follow djkardcreations and she has her first every challenge for anything goes (friendship theme).  The items I have never used before are the wooden birds and my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.


Now it's your turn to play along with us for a chance to become our Guest Designer for the entire month of August.  Can't wait to see all of the fabulous creations that this sketch inspires you to make.

Here are some links to the JUGS blog and design team
