Life IS wonderful!

It really is!

I have had such a hoot and a-holler participating with Dawn Woleslagle and the ENTIRE design team for WPLUS9 the last three days, and THIS is the final collection of stampy inspiration, to get as many of you ALL, chomping at the bit to OWN some of the hottest stamps around! I've gotten such a kick reading comments, here on my blog and throughout, Dawn, and all of the designer babe's blogs - and I'm THRILLED with the level of excitement ~ positively DELIGHTED to be part of the fun... I'm telling ya...

LIFE IS WONDERFUL! It's SOOOOOOOooooooo wonderful, in fact, that I decided to create my final card for Dawn's HUMONGOUS six month-avirsary, stamp release EXTRAVAGANZA, with a little challenge action, some of us affectionately refer to as the JUGS!

Just Us GIRLZZZZZZZZZZZZ! To be precise. I was SO {over the top!} inspired by my
sweet lil' craftiliscious friend, Dana/Paperdaydream..{!} I let THIS fine sketch take me HOME!

{Isn't that FUN!} With a little help from "the girls", I made THIS:

And I know a whole bunch MORE girls, who will take Dawn's stamps even further down the road of fabulous! Wontcha' PLEASE check out my cohorts of STAMPING fever, the fab girls of W9...


It has been SUCH a pleasure taking part in Dawn's six month-avirsary COUNTDOWN to stamping and CELEBRATION of the newest images from WPLUS9 design studio... I hope, hope, hope you are inspired to make some of Dawn's stamps {check them ALL out, here!} part of YOUR creative studio.... YEAHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOO! Enjoy!!!

FABBBBBBBBBulous Elise and Dana is wonderful inspiration. ROck on. Thanks for gettin' sketchy with JUGS this week - we appreciate your participation.

WOW! That peacock is just stunning!! Oh my. It took my breath away when I laid eyes on it. What a wonderful card - so many techniques that I like, the paper that is stamped in the background makes it appear like paper the sewing, the strip of paper is just right and to add the ribbon I would never have thought of doing both, but it so works. Thanks for the inspiration.

Monique said...

Wow that is a beautiful Image...Great take on the JUGS sketch :) TFS!

Lisa Kind said...

What a beautiful card! That image is gorgeous! One of the prettiest peacocks I've seen! Love WPlus9 designs! Glad our JUGs sketch inspired you to make this lovely card! Thanks for playing with Just Us Girls!
