Just Us Girls #255 - Photo Inspiration Week

JUGS 255 photo JUGS255pic.jpg

Love this inspiration photo for this week's Just Us Girls challenge.  So wished I had a truck stamp but no such luck so I honed in on the sunflowers and the chalk board behind them.

Out came Clearly Besotted's sunflower stamp and matching die and it was great fun making the chalkboard :)   A stitched outline and some twine for a country feel and my card was done.

The rest of the  JUGS team along with our August Guest Designer, Kristie, have some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so head on over to the Just Us Girls blog and check out what they've created.  Simply create a card using the sketch and link it up to the JUGS blog for a chance to be chosen as the Chic of the Week.  Remember, if you are chosen as Chic of the Week, you could be invited to be a Guest.

First soccer tournament of the season for my son this weekend and needless to say, I am one very happy mama that the weather for the weekend will be fabulous :)  Have a good one!

Perfect interpretation of the inspiration photo! Love that chalkboard (that is something that intimidates me) with the beautiful sunflower. The twine is the perfect addition to this.

No truck stamp required, Marisa, because the elements you've selected to use are absolutely amazing. I'm swooning over the sunflower; show-stopping gorgeous! A card that's farm-fresh fabulous! Hope the soccer tournament is going well; cheering that the weather is cooperating! We'have had nothing but rain and clouds all week; now that I'm going back to work tomorrow (eek!), the forecast is for sunny and warm. Figures...

Maureen said...

yes, chalkboards are the ultimate fun! I think that's why I haven't replaced my main board in the class with a whiteboard…I'm old school like that! LOL
