Happy New Year - Just Us Girls Challenge

Happy New Year and welcome to our first Just Us Girls challenge for 2018!  Let's keep the first challenge simple and anything goes.


I picked this fun kit called Canvas Wishes from Unity Stamp Co.  These puffy flowers remind me a bit of fireworks so I used them in a New Years card.  Very simple with white embossing powder over grey cardstock and added a silver ribbon.


Be sure to swing on by our amazing DT:

January Guest Designer, Cathy McCauley [cathymac]



Just a reminder: If you win Chic of the Week in any of our January challenges, you are in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of March. How to play: Please copy and use our graphic on your post. You need to upload your new project [no back dating please] for this week's challenge to your online blog or to a public photo gallery. Leave a link that goes directly to your project in the Linky Tools form at the bottom of this post. Deadline to be considered for the "Chic of the Week" is 9:00 PM EST on Thursday, January 11th . The Linky Tools form will close at that time. Our "Chic of the Week", will be announced the following Friday morning. Thanks for playing along. We can't wait to see what you create for Just Us Girls! Please limit your entries to 3.

Thanks for stopping by!

How clever you are to see fireworks in these pretty blooms! The grey/white combination is one of my favourites! I certainly hope that 2018 *is* your year! So thrilled to be joining you and the rest of the team: THANK YOU for welcoming me on board!
