Anything Goes at Just Us Girls

We're Back at Just Us Girls
after our lovely long break and now
raring to go for the New Year.
Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas.
First of all I want to welcome our 
New Designer
Super Talented Carol Mayne from Just Me
So happy to have you join us Jugheads!
Vicki is Hosting our first challenge which is our
Word Week choosing the easy peasy
Anything Goes!
This is the second card I have made with this lovely
cas die set from Gina Marie.
My card base was embossed with a brick folder
from Kaisercraft.
The background for the die cuts were watercoloured
and thumped with Tim's Oxide Inks
in Fossilized Amber/Spiced Marmalade
Inka Gold in Apricot/Yellow Gold on canvas paper.
Attached my dies and added the Birthday Sentiment
from IBS cut from MFT stitched die.
Matted with SU Hello Honey popped
 and finished with a few pearls.
Thanks for popping in.
Please go over to Our Blog
and give Carol a big welcome,
our January Guest Cathy McCauley and
check out what we have all created then
come join us this week.
Hope to see you there.

Joining in with this card over at
 CAS Watercolour
for their January Birthday Challenge

This card is just so YOU!!! The design is simply wonderful, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the white die cut against that gorgeous yellow gold. And then that embossed background is just the perfect final touch. STUNNING! You never disappoint!

Gorgeous card, SS. I love the "sunshine" it brings this terribly cold -10 degrees F (-23 celsius)day. The color thumping gives such a stunning bg for the die and the brick is the perfect foundation texture for this artwork. Beautiful in every way!

Your 'thumping' left a wonderful background to show off the die cuts, Ina.
