Birds at Just Us Girls



Screen Shot 2016-04-30 at 2.27.40 PMHello Friends,  What day is it?  Yes, It’s Saturday and time for a new challenge over at Just Us Girls.  It’s Word Week this week and Bobby has chosen the word BIRD for us.  I was in need of a Sympathy card this past week for a co-worker, so I got out my favorite SU heart die and color combination and went to work. I cut out my branch using my dusty old Cricut….LOL that has been so neglected, and the bird is from a Stamp company called Darcies that I haven’t used in forever.  I shaded him with a regular pencil.  My sentiment is from Stampin Up as well.  I also want to welcome our Guest Designer for the month of June…..Cornelia Wenokor.  We are so glad you are with us Cornelia!!

Hope you have a wonderful day, find some time to be creative, and come on over to Just Us Girls and join us!  I know you have an old bird laying around collecting dust!  HUGS!  Nanc’
