Jugs Challenge and A Special Happy Birthday

Good Day Crafty Friends!

This week’s Color Challenge over at JUGS is

hosted by the talented Marisa.

She has picked out a great color palette for us to work with!

It seems like when Spring rolls around I am always in need of Baby Shower gifts.

Most of the time I like to give my expectant mothers a gift card,

so that they may purchase what they want and

the dad can be a part of picking out something for his new baby as well.

Don’t you think those poor dads get left out sometimes?

So that is how this Gift-card holder came to be.

It is on it’s way to Michigan for my nephew’s wife’s baby shower!

I left out the Walmart Gift-card itself for the photo because it

was blue and didn’t match my card.

I couldn’t believe they had no pink gift cards!

Here is a peek at the inside of the card.

My Birthday Shout Out goes to a fellow JUGS  Design Team member Lisa!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LISA!!!

Hope it’s one of the best one’s ever!!!

Here is a card I made in honor of your birthday!

This card really needs no explanation….the sentiment is from Close to My Heart and the balloons were

made using either a circle punch or my Creative Memories circle cutter… adhered with some pop dots!

They look like they are floating…don’t they?

So…..

The rest of the JUGS team has some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going,

so just hop on over to the Just Us Girls blog, and check out what the Design Team has created.

  Then put your creative genes to work and add your card/project to the challenge post on the

JUGS blog for the chance to be selected as Chic of the Week.

See you there!

  1. Love the fold-over on the gift card. I never thought of layering balloons but that’s a great idea.

  2. CA – UTE cards! Both of them are fabulous, I love the elephant~

  3. VERY cute and VERY clever! Love the unique way your card opens, and I adore the balloons!

  4. Eeeek!!! Your gingham Emery is soooo cute!!! Great layout and fabulous use of the colours 🙂 Loving the balloon card too! Way to rock the challenge this week 🙂

  5. YOU are sooooo darling, Nancy! What a lovely Auntie you are! This card is truly adorable – I think I smell some fresh baby power & L-O-V-E! Your use of color and layers, plus adorable stamping makes me play with these colors some MORE! I’m SO delighted to have your inspiration in the mix at JUGS headquarters! My love to the new parents to be!
