Holy SNOWFLAKES, I'm a JUGS girl!

.... At least, temporarily.... {!}


It is with TREMENDOUS delight, and a tad of "aw shucks", that I accepted the FABULOUS honor of Guest Designer-ship for the fun and FANTASTIC, challenge destination site, Just Us Girls! { Yipeeee and Yahooo! } I'm THRILLED to be playing with some of the MOST extremely lovely, fun and, hugely talented gals: the ladies of the J.U.G.S, during the month of December!





OH WHAT FUN! That's RIGHT! Check out this action-packed sketch provided by, Alicia, one of the bright stars of the JUGS' corral, a fellow HORSE-LOVER, and all-around sweet heart! I have to say, her sketch made my heart race with the "possibility", but gave my paper-lovin' heart reason to dig in deep, and and get my CRAFT ON... {That's code for "it was a BIT of a challenge!"}! Limitless card-craft potential: I hope you'll be inspired to let this great composition catapult you into some FABULOUS craft d-i-s-c-o-v-e-r-y!

In other words: PLAY WITH US! (Is it okay that I say "us?" - hee hee)




I got some PAPER-PIECING onnnnnnnnn, for the love-o-the-sport! Goodness, gracious, it felt good! Something about the impending holidays, far too much to do on the "To-DO" list of life, and nursing a sniffly child ALL WEEK LONG {Ack!}, that made my slice of heavenly craft time, today, light me up like a BRAND new Christmas Tree! Oh, Tannenbaum - it felt good to craft!






An entire FAMILY of snow-flaky folks, inspired by one of my favorite Christmas paper collections - EVERRRRRR! {I love COSMO CRICKET * I love COSMO CRICKET * I love COSMO CRICKET! - I REALLY, really, really do!} This was my answer to FABULOUS sketch #62... Check out what else is going on in CRAFT CENTRAL! The fine works of the JUGS team will certainly help you get your creative mojo in high gear!




Here's hoping you'll love playing with this sketch as much as I did! I, literally, cannot WAIT to see what the JUGS "regulars" kick down, and if you haven't shared your work with them before , I SURE HOPE YOU'LL dig out some time, this round!!! THANKS for stopping by!

How on EARTH do you come up with this stuff?! The little snowman in the middle looking up at the clouds??? The snowman on the end in the glasses??! Glasses?!! I can't stand it!

{Off topic: as I'm writing this, my kids are writing the entire twinkle twinkle little star on a piece of 12X12 paper. Madison is sitting on the floor doing it and she comes to me and says, "Can I cut off the corners of this paper 'cuz they're poking me?.....I know where to get the little thing to do it." Yes, my kids already know what tools are needed to get the job done!}

Thank YOU, Elise for agreeing to join us this month! I ♥ your work, but even more than that your wonderful, contagious spirit! How absolutely clever are you to make your banner into a family of cutie-patootie snowmen with a little moon and cloud hovering above?! This is so adorable! Love your palette and the sentiment adorned with snowflakes. You worked that sketch like noone's business!!
