2010 JUGS

Hello 2010! Day two and I am pleased to say I have not broken my New Years Resolution… Yet! 🙂 I am behind on getting our Christmas thank you cards off because I am going to make each one…. So, by July, everyone should receive a card! 🙂  This one is for my nieces/nephew.  Thought they might get a kick out of the squirrel.

Today, I participated in the JUGS sketch challenge. I was pretty pleased with my card, that is until I went and saw all the samples the JUGS design team made! Dare I even check Mr. Linky at this point?!? I really felt proud of myself because I added the strip of glitter to jazz up the card! See? That is pretty sad that I get excited about such a silly, pretty basic thing  many of you would think of doing or already did in your first month of crafting… I have GOT to think outside of the box! Grrr….  LOL!    Here’s to 2010! Hope it is a great year for everyone!

  2. Laurel, what a cute little squirrel image! Reminds of me of all the little varmins running about looking for a nut in the winter time when you can see their teeny tiny foot prints on top of the snow! Those were my days of living in Buffalo, NY now in Phoenix, AZ I don’t see those little prints! Thank you so much for playing along with Just Us Girls sketch challenge – Hope to see you next Saturday for a fun technique challenge!
