LOVE at JUGS and a Color Challenge


Hello Happy Weekend,

Look at all that LOVE Inspiration you can pull from to get your MOJO flowing!

 The Bold letters are what first inspired me and then the rest just fell into place.

I had some watercolor paper still out on my desk from another soon to post

project and I enjoyed using it so much I decided to use it again.


I am also entering this in the color challenge over at The Pink Elephant!

The colors this week are Pink, Red and your choice!

I obviously chose green!


Card Details:

That heart vine image is one of the first stamps I ever purchased and it’s from Studio G,

and I probably picked it up at Michaels.

Used my SU watercolor brush and Real Red and Lucky Limeade Ink.

I used my Fiskars cutter to make the fancy Victorian edge and then decided not to waste 

that piece and put it on the other side.  ( ignore the smudge mark) 😦

Made the letters with my Cricut and ran them through my Cuttlebug!

Really happy with the outcome!

Come on over to Just Us Girls and join us!


 Just a reminder:  if you win Chic of the Week in any of our January challenges,

you are in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of March. 

Here are some links to get you started!
