Happy 1 Year Anniversary JUGS #53!

I cannot believe, as I write this, that it's been a year since we launched the Just Us Girls challenge site. My how time flies. In our year we have grown to over 650 followers - THANK YOU! We hope that means that you're enjoying what we offer as inspiration to our fellow papercrafters. We are inviting all of you to participate in our big celebration this week. There are some FANTASTIC prizes this week so you WILL want to participate!!!

Kristin is our hostess and she's got a sketch challenge for you.



First off PLEASE give a warm JUGS welcome to our very talented Featured Designer, Selma Stevenson! Selma has a way with flowers that is just amazing (of course she does other designs too!) so be sure you stop and leave her some love :-)

I am beyond crazy busy right now with work, my DT assignments and some very cool stuff going on at home and in my personal life so I kept it simple this week. I seem to use a lot of thank you cards so I added to my stash with this one -->

When I want to whip up a quick card I often turn to designer papers - and that's what I did this week. Beautiful paper from PTI called Autumn Abundance. A coule of primas, a few pearls and my sentiment popped onto a nestie cutout. The senti comes from Gina K's lovely "So Grateful" set.
Quick n easy!!!

Here's a close up...


There you have it!

I love the "autumn-ness" of your card, Pam. Hopefully, I'll be able to start playing again after the new year, but until then, I'll be back to check out your gorgeous creations!!
