JUGS#187 & Crazy4Challenges!

I'm not sure if your card stash is like mine..but when I need a 'thinking of you' or 'get well' card....well, there is none to be had! Oh dear, I guess the housework/laundry/gardening etc. will have to wait ~ 'cause I need to go create! What a fabulous early morning of creating I had!
I found two fabulous challenges to use as my starting place ~ thanks all, for these wonderful challenges that you bring our way each week.  Today I played with the sketch from JUGS#187 & the color challenge from crazy4challenges....oh do pop in on these challenges and join in the fun...there is still time to play!

I really enjoyed these colours and then along with the sketch, I think it came together quite nicely! although I'm not to sure about the two different colored ribbons ~ I thought of changing it..but those polka dots on the pink ribbon!!! How could I exchange that ~ so I decided to go with it!
I went with my Labels Collection Die for the centre shapes (hope that's okay) and opted to not add a sentiment in the bottom left corner as I had stamped my En Fran├žais stamp on the entire piece of Very Vanilla CS. And now here is a peek at the card I created for my girlfriend! Hope she likes it ~ now I'd better get back to creating another card...I need a 'get well' for a male friend of that will be a huge challenge for me! Male cards...lets go Mojo...don't fail me now!

Thank you SO much for popping by today ~ I hope you have a blessed day! Hug your loved ones!

If you live in Winnipeg or the vicinity and would like to host a party I would love to come and stamp with you and your friends!! Or, if space is an issue, come here and create with me at one of my many clubs or classes! Drop me a line for further info! I'd love to meet you! Enjoy your day!
