Good clean CHALLENGE(s) fun and a WINNER!

Howdy, FRIENDS! I'm SO excited for the WEEKEND! Welcome FUN!

And welcome CRAFT TIME! {Hallelujah!} - Yes, please! I'd love some!

THAT'S why, I'm combining in THIS one lil' card and post, my TWO most
favorite crafty/challengy past times ... Just Us Girls & Card Patterns! The
flawless fit of this week's JUGS technique AND inspiring Card Patterns sketch
was too beautiful for me to ignore - did you hear that CLICK ? - How flawlessly
they work together! MEOW! CHECK it out... Here's Just Us Girls....

Hosted by the LOVELY and fabulous Dana, of Paper Daydream...
{Ahhhhh, such a lovely day dream!} and the fabulous design talents
of our darling Jugsters / Jugheads / Just US Girls.....


AND, our FABULOUS Guest Designerfor the month of
September, the ultra talented, Monique Hansen!

We're making WORDS into ART and juicing up our cards with it!

Yup - I'm still showing off with Dawn's new release! LOVE
How perfect for this assignment! {Wahoooooooo!}

LOVE this sketch lay-out, too - LOTS of room for FUN!

I, literally, had so many ideas for this composition, my head was-a-swirlin'...!
But when it came time to craft - I was inspired by the lovely printed piece in
the center of the card! I had saved and saved and protected this hunk of goodness
long enough - as a result, THIS card happened. What a hoot! Meanwhile, I hope
you're throw some crafty work into the mix with Card Patterns this week!
And while you're at it, don't forget to check out my lovely other sistas of
designy inspo and all around fun - the Card Patterns powerhouses! Yee Haw!

our 100th challenge... And we were offering up some yummy incentive to
have you play with us.......
