Just SOME FUN SKETCH action...

From the Just Us Girrrrrrrls crew!



They've got a real fun one this week, and although I've said it before, it's TRUE! Their DESIGN TEAM has really sizzled with this hot, hot, hot sketch! I knew, instantly, that this lil' baby was going to get me RIGHT where I needed to be, creatively! Check it OUT and don't forget the source for inspiration delight [JUGS headquarters!}...



I was SO inspired, I put aside my thoughts of "oh, no - HALLOWEEN!" to get crafty with some new goodies... Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge lover of the spooky-fun season, but when the jack-o-lanterns replace the school supplies at my local Target, I just get a little cranky. It's like a conspiracy to make the world move too fast... but WHATEVER! Since card craft IS my therapy, I let myself get lost in some new Cosmo Cricket CHIPBOARD!!!! from their new "Matilda" Halloween collection...



Ooooooooooowwwwww! THAT was fun!

Here's hoping the long weekend is providing some quality time with friends, family and YOUR CRAFT SUPPLIES!!!! {Can I get a "yeeeeeeeeeee hawWWWW!" ?!?!?!} Have a great day!

On a completely unrelated note:

Today I was unexpectedly at the vet with my dog. As we waited in the waiting room, I stared out the large windows at the property across the highway. I watched as a beautiful redhead cowgirl was out taking care of her horses. She released them one by one to pasture and I don't remember the last time I saw such lovely horses literally running free, bucking and rolling in the dirt and strolling up the hill into their beautiful vast land. "Happy California Horses", for sure. I watched as the cowgirl tended to the gates, climbed fences, all of this while chatting on her cell phone, hopefully enjoying a visit with a good friend. What a pleasant view to start my day.

It was fun watching you this morning Elise!!! Have a great week.

Claire said...
