Hello Crafty Friend!



Screen Shot 2015-08-18 at 12.25.33 PMHello Crafty friends,  It’s Saturday and that means it’s time for a brand new challenge over at Just Us Girls.  This week it’s color week and Maria our hostess has picked out some fall colors for us to enjoy working with.  I didn’t embrace the colors and go in the direction of a ” Fall ” card as one might think, as I was in the need of a fun card to send to one of my crafty friends.  This card was quick and so fun to thrown together.  Hope she likes it!  The stamp sets are from Paper Smooches and are called Positive Strokes and I Heart Art.  I paper pieced the paintbrush and added some faux stitching to tie in the black as it looked a little lost.

I sure hope you come by to Just Us Girls and join us if you have time.  Remember if you are chosen as our Chic of the Week you will be in the running as a possible guest designer in the future.  Hope to see you there
