Our WORD WEEK at Just us Girls

The LOVELY SHARYN is hosting this weeks
WORD CHALLENGE and your challenge is
to make a card depicting what inspires you about
WINTER where you live and tell us what it is.
'Easy' you may say but it had me
 stumped for a long time.
For me Winter is staying indoors with my little pot belly stove
burning nicely and playing in my craft room.
Now how do I make a card with that in mind?
Since I didn't have  a stamp with a fire place I decided to
go the opposite way and look outside to see what inspired me.
I know Winter is coming on when all the beautiful frangipani's
start losing their leaves and the trees go bare
but my sister in law has the beautiful pink one
that the flowers stay on so that is what I like about Winter in
my part of the world. It is always nice to visit her to see them
flowering in her back yard.

My card is fairly simple with a white card base.
I topped that with the bright yellow of the centre of the
flower. I then stamped the background to my main frangipani
with the frangipani stamp from Darkroom Door in
Spun Sugar Distress Ink.
I attached 2 flowers with a brad in front of the sparkly pink ribbon.
Added a few sequins a little yellow spritzing
and a sentiment from Gina K Designs.

Don't forget to pop over and check out what Winter
means to my other Jugheads and our January Guest Designer
the Super Talented Judy Woodland.

Just like Judy you could be our  Guest Designer for March
by entering our challenges and be chosen
as a CHIC of the WEEK.
Hope to see you over at
I have also added this card to the Design Team Showcase.

PS Wishing you all a 'GUID NEW YEAR'.
