Celebrate! It's Photo Week at JUGS

It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls
and Hosting is Lisa who has chosen
rather a fitting photo as 2016 is
a Leap Year and all those who were born
on the 29th get to Celebrate their special day.
I looked at the photo and thought how easy was this?
Just some great flourishes and a date.
Well I was wrong. After a few attempts
and some paper being thrown in the bin
I went with this -   

Not my favourite and not completely happy
with the end result but sometimes you just have
to say - It's not that bad after all...
I kept it cas as the photo is just that.
I used the following items -
White and coloured card stock
Framed my flourish which is rightly named
Flourish from Kaisercraft.
inked with Memento Olive Grove (a little too dark )
Sentiment is IBS
Number 18 is from Cuttlebugs Hippie Chick Alphabet
Added some pearls to give my card a lift.
Thanks for dropping in and be sure to pop over
and see what has inspired our Guest Pamellia
and the Team.
Join us and you are in the running for
Chic of the Week and
may be chosen as our Guest for April.

For a 'Special Friend'

Our latest challenge at
is being Hosted by Marlene
and she has chosen the Theme
'For a Special Woman'
and I had a Special Friend in mind
so I made this card just for her.
I made it fairly cas as she is one that doesn't go
all over the top fancy with her cards.
I used the following products on my card -
Basic card stock Doily
Flower is inked with SU Rich Razzleberry
from Gina K Designs
Sentiment (perfect for my friend) is from
Lily of the Valley and given to me by her
so it is pretty special.
Framed with Spellbinders Circles/Lacey Circles
Punch is from Fiskars
and a few rhinestones.
Pop on over to our blog and see
what my Team Mates created
and hope you get the chance to
Make something for a Special Lady
in your life.
