Just Us Girls party like we're 100!

Wait, we ARE 100! It's our ONE hundredth challenge at
Just Us Girls headquarters and WE'RE having a party!!!
Won't you come along and play with us? EVERYONE,
and I mean EVERYONE'S invited! {THIS means YOU!}

We're feeling a bit nostalgic in the land of Just Us Girls - so we decided to
take a look back at the VERY first JUGS sketch from October of 2009!!!

Holy Moly! Do you REMEMBER where you were back then? I can recall
what I was doing... WORLD CARD MAKING DAY was here and there were
so MANY ways to get your craft ON that day! I joined in the fun of
SEVERAL brand new challenges, and as a result I made THIS:

Whoppeeee! Magazine clipping meets lovely sketch challenge and I
was off and flying along with Just Us Girls and Everything But the
Kitchen Sink {*Swoon!* - miss you guys!} WHAT A HOOT!

So, to keep a wonderful party alive and kicking.. My NEW take on a classic!

And a fitting inside to match {I'm a horrible birthday rememberer, so THIS
card is completely autobiographical, I admit it!}... So happy to use these stamps!

Enough said. {Tee Hee}

AND some MOST delicious BLOG CANDY to keep it sugary and fun!

That's right, friends - YOU CAN WIN MY BLOG CANDY BOOTY!

But THAT'S not all! EVERY SINGLE JUGS designer is sharing the
bounty of our crazy-fun crafty life, and there is AMPLE opportunity
to win, win, win! CHECK out my darlings, sistaz and FRIENDS from
Just Us Girls - it's like HALLOWEEN around here - only THIS sugar
won't anger your dentist... But it WILL make your smile brighter!

Andrea {although she can't play, she's still doling out the goods!}

AND, please make welcome our FABULOUS Guest Designer
for the month of September, the incomparable Monique Hansen!
Welcome, sweet girl! We are so honored to have your creative
inspiration for OUR delight and enjoyment! Woot! Woot!

So much FUN!

All of the details and instructions are over at the JUGS site, so
make sure you check in there to get started. In a nutshell, just give some love
out to every designer on the list, including Monique,
and make SURE
to add your CARD to our linky list with a comment
on the JUGS post,
and then you will be in the running! THERE'S
multiple, multiple
chances at loot and since every girl HAS some,
your chances
of winning are fabulous! Please be SURE to add the
JUGS graphic
to your post to make it official
: it means SO much to
us when you do that - we don't want ANYONE to miss out on the
fun and every bit of "good word" helps! It's incredible to think
that JUST US GIRLS have been doing "their thing" for 100 challenges
STRAIGHT! I SURE hope you'll join us for the terrific fun!

Karen said...

I *remember* that first card! And oh my goodness, you are kicking in the fabulous fall papercrafty love with this new one! Fall's a fantastic time (even more so, if the 90 degree temps would hurry up & leave us) and you always do it justice, my fellow fall lover. Can't wait to see what else you have in store for us this season! :>

Hey E-stir! Sorry I missed you somehow when I was commenting earlier. OOOPs. I laughed right out loud when I saw your card and the sentiment. Sadly it seems that I do more FORGETTING than remembering these days. Not just birthdays either. I do remember your very first JUGS card - see how very different the two are?@!? You are AMAZING, E! Thank you for everything you do for the JUGS team - I think we should crown you HEAD CHEERLEADER for us because you are a marvel at leaving great comments, and for sending fabby emails to the team. We are blessed to have you on board. Thanks for making us shine and for your ideas and input on #100!!! YOU are a JEWEL!! Hugs, thanks and KUDOS from Pammycakes!
