Just Us Girls #469 - Word Week

Hi friends!  Welcome back to Just Us Girls for 2019!  We had a nice holiday break and are back to our fun challenges!
This week is our Word Week challenge and Sue chose "leftovers".  Clever word choice!
When I sat down at my desk to do my card, I had no idea what I was going to do.  Then I saw this great blue sponged piece that I had discarded because there was a big white splotch from the copic paint I spattered.  It didn't work for the card I was making, but I made it work for this card.  Then I saw all these images (there are more!) that I stamped, colored, and die cut that were intended for tags.  Well, life happened and the tags were never made.  But they were perfect for this leftovers challenge!  The middle penguin is where the splotch of white paint is and he covered it perfectly!  All I had to do is die cut the snow drifts and the word, added Star Dust Stickles, and sequins and I was done!  So nice to have some leftovers to make a great card for next year!
You can see more from the JUGs design team on the JUGs blog.

Those penguins are adorable and how great that they were already colored so you could use them for this challenge, Lisa.
