We're BACK at Just Us Girls

Welcome to 2020 and our first challenge of the year at
Just Us Girls
We've also got some Exciting News -
In case you missed it
The Amazingly Talented Cecile Ribon
is joining the Jugheads and we are so thrilled
that she will share her talents for us 'every week'
How good is that!
A Huge Welcome to the Team Cecile.
Also a big Welcome to one of two Guests
we have this month - Mary Deatherage
Our other Guest will join us next week.

Angie is Hosting and my Team Mates are
in the midst of Winter and maybe snowflakes abound
while I swelter in the Aussie Summer.

I made my snowy card as part of my much smaller Christmas card makes
 and I do love using snowflakes -
the colours are mostly in the blue/white and so cooling.
It was an easy card to make.
Snowflakes are heat embossed and by SU.
The background is smooched with
Lindy's Magical Shaker in Afternoon Delight Denim
and has this lovely shimmer to it.
Sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers.
I corner rounded and inked the edges and attached
to white card base.

Pop over and see what our January Guest  Mary Deatherage
and the Team have created this week and come join us for
our first challenge of the year.
You could be chosen as our Chic of the Week
and in the running for a Guest Spot in March.
Hope to see you in the Gallery.
Thanks for dropping in

It's a New Year at Happy Little Stampers

Happy New Year! and Welcome.
Hope you had a lovely Christmas and
didn't celebrate too hard bringing in the New Year.

It's our first Challenge of 2020 at Happy Little Stanpers
and of course it starts off with our Watercolour Challenge.
With the New Year we have New Designers joining us
and they are Carole, Swapna and Anna. 
A Big Welcome to the Happy Family.

Our Watercolour Challenges are always Anything Goes
but we do have an Option and this month we are looking for
Watercolour Creations using Die Cuts.
We all have an abundance of those, so should be
an easy task for you to join us!
I started by smooching my watercolour background with
 Lindy's Magical Shakers in Magnolia Magenta Gold
 adding some texture pasted stenciled dots.
I then inked another piece of watercolour paper,
this time with Lindy's Afternoon Delight Denim
and cut out various die cuts - some coloured and
a few in white. While I had a bit of colour left over
I smooched my SB tag on one corner and added 
the sentiment from Happy Little Stampers.
Added some splatters for effect then
placed my die cuts and popped die cut sentiment.
Finished with adhering to blue card base.

Have you been over and checked out what my 
Team Mates created? Hope you were inspired by 
what you saw so you can add yours to our Gallery.
Thanks for dropping in on me.
