Just Us Girls #613

Welcome to 2022 and the first Just Us Girls challenge of the year.  It's a word challenge and Nancy has chosen this:


You might be thinking alcohol since yesterday was New Year's Eve but I went in a totally different direction.

The teacup and saucer from Altenew were stamped on PTI Aqua Mist, heat embossed and then stamped with spots that dried back way more that I thought they would.  The sentiment from the same set was stamped before running the panel through my die cutting machine with the STAMPlorations coverplate.   More Aqua Mist was used for a border, with both panels being cut to size with Waffle Flower A2 layers dies. 

We are welcoming two new members to our Design Team.  Lisa Elton and Carol McFarland.  You will want to check out both their challenge card and their blogs to see their beautiful cards.  

We also have two guest designers in January, Chrissie Stokes and Stef Perry.  They also have some wonderfully creative cards on their blogs as well as a card to inspire you to join the challenge.  We hope to see you there.

  7. What a sweet card Bobby! Love the soft color palette you used. I have friends that are die hard tea drinkers that say the sentiment is spot on!

  9. There you are! I was beginning to think you'd left me off of your mailing list, Bobby!
    I think the subtle dots made your 'china' even more realistic - and it's a perfect time for a hot cup of any beverage at all!

  12. Wow, Bobby, you surely are the wisest from all of us, no champagne, no wine no cocktail and not even a yummy cocoa cup. But your cup of tea looks absolutely delightful and so stylish. I wish you a happy 2022.
