Just Us Girls Saturday Sketch Challenge

The weekend is here!  And I'm thrilled to be a Guest Designer on the Just Us Girls Blog for the month of September.  Thanks so much to Pam for inviting me to join all the fabulous talented designers!  If you're new to the JUGS blog, each week they have a different challenge:

  • Sketch Challenge

  • Technique Challenge

  • Color Challenge

  • Template Challenge
It's great to change things up week to week and occassionally take you out of your comfort zone to try something fun and new!  First up, the sketch:
For my card this week, I was looking forwarding to using some of my new Cosmo Cricket Togetherness paper.  Have to say, I love buying 6x6 paper sets. 


Hope everyone enjoys my card and that your weekend is off to a fabulous start...as I type this my hubby and his friends are having their Fantasy Football draft in the basement followed by some poker.  This is the time of the year when we start to battle for the laptop!  Blogging or fantasy football research, trading, etc.   My older boys are outside playing ghost in the graveyard...the windows are open and it is a gorgeous start to a long weekend.  Can feel the fall air coming and I have to say I love it! 

Thanks again to the JUGS team!  Come play along with us!

Ingredients:  SU Ruby Red and Wild Wasabi Paper and Ink, SU So Saffron Ink; WPlus9 The Birds & The Bees Stamps; PTI Twine, Jenni Bowlin Butterfly Embellishments; SU Sizzlit Tag Die; PTI Turning a New Leaf and Polka Dot Basics; Cosmo Cricket Togetherness

  9. This is gorgeous, Lynn!! I love your take on the sketch...so creative. That paper is gorgeous and I adore your butterfly accent to the pretty vines.

    We are so lucky to have you join us this month! I'm excited to see all of your projects :] Thank you for agreeing to be our guest designer ♥

    On a different note, reading your note about the simple things in life (your boys playing outside and your hubby and friends playing poker in the basement, while you blog with the windows open) makes me wistful. I love fall...it is and has always been my favorite season. Growing up in Michigan, I can't think of a better time of year. The air cools and smells so fresh, the trees go through their beautiful change of color...just an easy going time of year.
