JUST US GIRLS and a COOL sketch!

Hi, crafty fiends!

It's time for ANOTHER fun and inspirational challenge with Just Us Girls!
I am SO honored to be ringing in my third, official challenge as a, FOR-REAL,
"Jug Head".... What a delightful team of gals to be associated with
in such a wonderful and craftilicious way!

They've made me feel so welcome, in fact, I'm not too shy to get a little "silly" ONNNN.
Right in front of YOU ALL.. {Shhhhhh!} I'm letting my irreverent side out to play ~
{Wait? Whaaaaaa.....?} Okay..., so you've ALREADY seen that, but I'm just sayin' ~
around my fellow Jugsters, I'm not afraid to be me... That's all!

Holy GIGANTIC bow ~

I simply surrendered to this unique and fun sketch by our very own Kristin...

And then had a festival-o-paper, stamps, stuff and Want2Scrap BLING!

SUCH a great recipe for a crafty day! I sure hope you'll grab some time to play!

You ARE wonderful Elise! I love your style and this card is no exception! It so reminds me of the 50's! Not that I was alive or anything but I do remember what my mom told me and the old shows I used to watch like Donna Reed! This card just brings me back! Love it girl!

Nancy in Iowa said...

This is totally a complete retro package...the DP, the image, the colors, the hat pins, grosgrain ribbon - and the sketch along with your retro elements - reminded me immediately of a pocket on an apron. This is so much fun!! So is that June and Ward Cleaver or Ozzie and Harriet? :)

Nancy in Iowa said...

Oh! And I forgot the PEARLS!! This card ROCKS! Or at least does a good ol' jitterbug!!!
