Just Us Girls - Template Challenge

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday! I'm excited to bring this template challenge to you today from Just Us Girls.Our template challenges are being sponsored by My Time Made Easy. Lauren Meader has expanded her line of Cute Critters and I have two new ones to show you that will be available on Monday, March 1. Here are the Bouncing Bunny and Cute Lil' Chick making their debut.These little critters just make me smile! :-) I used the Under Cover template as the base for these and used the SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) software and my Cricut Expression to cut them out. The pieces of the bunny and chick are cut files also cut with the Cricut using SCAL. I used copic markers to color in the face of the chick and the nose of the bunny. I sponged the edges of the critters with Close to Cocoa on the bunny and barely banana on the chick. I liked the depth of color this technique gave me. I don't know if you can see it, but I used pink chalk to highlight the bunny's ears and cheeks. I used Basic Grey papers for the bellies on both....Bittersweet on the bunny and Lemonade on the chick. I added the flowers, coordinating ribbon to hold the box together, and the cotton for the bunny's tail! And the Under Cover box is big enough to hold some really great goodies, too! Adorable, right? You should see what the JUGS DT has created! They have done some very clever things with these critters! Stop by the JUGs blog to see all of them. You can also stop by the blogs of each of the DT members. We are saying goodbye to our February Guest Designer, Iwona Palamountain, also. She has done a fabulous job with us, so please make sure you stop by her blog to give her some love.

If you'd like to play along, you can use ANY template or design of your own. Just stop by the JUGs blog to get the details! Lauren is giving away a template of your choice by a random drawing if you participate in the JUGs template challenge!
