Just Us Girls Challenge - JUGS1

I'm participating in a new challenge that some of the My Time to Create girls cooked up. We didn't have a challenge from Lauren Meader today, so Kristin and Pam came up with a challenge called Just Us Girls, JUGS as the acronym! We all thought it was hysterical and appropriate at the same time. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and tomorrow is the annual Breast Cancer Walk across the US, so JUGS became our challenge. Kristin came up with a great sketch (thanks Kristin...I love them!) for us to use.So in keeping with the girls theme, I created this card.Isn't this image a hoot? It's from Inkadinkadoo, and I bought it ages ago to make cards for my best girlfriends that I go to spas with every year. I thought it would be fun for this group, because I really think they are a great bunch of girls! I hope we continue with the challenges, because I would hate to lose touch with them.

OK, enough with the mushy stuff...on with the card! I used SU's Cottage Wall...love that dp! The image is colored with copics and I just had to add star dust stickles to their towels and robes. I also added crystal effects to the cucumbers on their eyes. I don't know if the dew drops are overkill, but I felt it needed something. Now you have to check out what the other girls who are playing in this challenge have done.

So if you want to play you can link your direct post to Mr. Linky on Kristin's blog. If you post to an online gallery, please use the code JUGS1 (no giggles!) so we can find your creations! Thanks for stopping by and I have another post below from today that you should check out!

OMG, Lisa! This is so great :O) I love that image, it IS perfect for the challenge and when you think about all us girls. LOVE your card and how you used the border punch on the bottom layer, and NO the dew drops are NOT overkill! They really add that something extra without being too much! A little bling never hurts :O)

Oh, and I have to tell you! I'm soooo glad you used that Cottage Wall DSP! I created my SU! shopping list today and I looked at that DSP twice and didn't add it. I need to edit my list now that I've seen your card :O) So thank you...for enabling me!

So glad you could play along today! I LOVE our JUGS :O) ROFL! I'll send you an email about what's cookin'!

Have a great weekend lady!

I love this girlfriend / spa card! My sis & I adventure to the salon monthly to get our manis & pedis as well as a bi-weekly massage & this card would knock her socks off! Amazing job with the sketch! :) TFS (BTW - I am a native Buffalonian! :)
