Just Us Girls #117 - Wild Card Challenge

Happy New Year everyone!  It's hard to believe another year has gone by!  So much crafting!  I should do a year in review like I did here last year.  No time right now...maybe tomorrow or Monday.  It's always fun to look back and reminisce. 

Today I'm here with the last Just Us Girls challenge for 2011.  It just so happens that it's the 5th week of the month (which means Wild Card challenge) and that I'm the hostess!  So I've chosen to challenge everyone to use felt on their creations.  I love felt and this is the perfect time of year to use it, too!
I'm so done with Christmas cards, so on to the next holiday...Valentine's Day.  I was looking for a die to use and picked this one from My Favorite Things called Hearts a Plenty.   Never been used, so perfect choice!  I used PTI felt in red, pink, and white.  The paper is from a Bo Bunny pack from last year.  The sentiment is from Verve called Feeling Groovy.
Simple card using a FTL sketch that I just love to use!  I altered it a bit, as you can see.
Check out what the girls have done.  You can see their creations on the JUGs blog or at their personal blogs.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a fun and safe New Year's celebration!

Hi LIsa! Thanks for the fun felt challenge this week. I just love a good creative go with a supply like felt and this week's projects are fabulous and varied. *love* Your felt hearts have me all jazzed up for valentine's making. I feel like gluing paper and felt hearts to a paper bag and hanging it from the edge of my desk to see if any valentine's notes appear....thanks for the challenge and your wonderful inspiration!
