Just Us Girls #169 and SWEET 16!

Christmas may be over, but there are STILL reasons to get your SPARKLE on!

Check!  Sign ME up!  YOU, too?  Well, THEN!  
Just Us Girls is JUST the place for you!  It's a WILDCARD 
kind of week, and dear Maria has challenged us to make
cards for New Years, that DON'T skimp on the sparkle....

Well, now.  Hmmm.  Let me think about....

SPARKLE, B-L-I-N-G, and a BRAND new year?  Wahooooo!  Sounds like a party to me!

And speaking of sparkle....  oh, and maybe just a lil' LESS sparkle...  It saddens me greatly,
to have to say goodbye to one of the SPARKLIEST gems in all of Jug-land...  Our EVER 
delightful and talented, SUPER sweet and ALWAYS organized, loving and AMAZING, 


Thank GOODNESS, she's not leaving blogland, and I will look forward to spying her
stunning creations IN PRINT{!} and throughout blogdom..   BUT, I will REALLY miss
her!  THANK YOU, LYNN!  Your grace and elegance will NEVER be forgotten! 


So, on THAT note..  I'm covered in EXTRA sparkle, wistfulness and NOSTALGIA....  

Well, it's my 16th anniversary of MARRIAGE, so, I can't help myself...
I'm sushi-wasted, a veteran of marriage, LIFE and blogland...  

And THAT'S a good thing!  Here's to all the good things in YOUR life!
