Wplus9 & JUST US GIRLS - Anniversary party!



It's the perfect storm of paper crafting for lil' me:



You may or may not know that I have the supreme privilege of designing for
the FABULOUS stamp company, Wplus9 Design Studio... Just about every
month, we unveil the latest {and GREATEST!} of stamps from the dynamic
designer and owner, herself - Dawn Woleslagle... We're hitting the ground
running for COLDER weather, and I couldn't think of a better way to show-
case Dawn's latest stunners, than to combine these new babies with this FAB
sketch challenge, from my OTHER job {heh heh}, Just Us Girls! Get ready...





To SNUGGLE!



{We just got over a mid summer style HEAT WAVE, here in California...}
But THIS wonderful stamp set makes me yearn for sweater weather!!!
I had a festive and fun time translating Dawn's images into this stunning
sketch by the JUGS' talented guest designer for this month, Maureen Plut!

{WELCOME, Maureen! Way to get us ALL crafty with delight!}

~ Did someone say "delight?" HEY! That reminds me of THESE girls!~

Love your card, especially the vellum over the snowman paper: so much good stuff to look at on your card :-)

Oh my goodness: you're from Cotati? I'm in Healdsburg!!! email me if you want to get together to stamp sometime(hlebrett at live dot com). My stamping buddies moved away about 4 years ago and I've been the "lone stamper" up here since!! that's half the fun of stamping: doing it with friends :-)
