Just Us Girls - Template Challenge

The Just Us Girls challenge today is a template challenge, and Maria challenged us to make an apron card. The template can be found here and it's a really fun and easy card to do! Here's what I came up with.I just purchased this dp from Graphic 45. It's called Tea Time from the Domestic Goddess collection. I printed out the template for the base, then reduced it for the dp. For the pocket part, I put a tag that you could write a message on.I cut out the tag with a Nestie, distressed the edges with Antique Linen distress ink, and stamped the apron from Paper Makeup Stamps ,called Tina's Kitchen, in the same ink. The sentiment, also from Tina's Kitchen, was stamped in Riding Hood Red. I added the ribbon and was done!

Did you notice my card holder? Can you guess what it is?Isn't this cool? I saw it on someone's blog a while ago, then a few weekends ago we had our annual Allentown Art Festival here in downtown Buffalo (a FABULOUSLY, HUGE art show) and I saw it in a booth! I had to have it! And it was perfect to use for this challenge card, as it doesn't stand and it's a apron (fork-food-apron...see the connection?). OK, maybe I'm too excited about this, but I love it!

That's all I have for this template challenge. Stop by the JUGs blog to get all the information on the challenge and see the girls' cards! Please stop by their personal blogs as well...you can find them on my sidebar.

Thanks for stopping in today and have a great weekend!
