Just Us Girls 6

Sorry it has been a few days since my last post, but my DS deposited flu germs in my house last weekend and trust me it has not been a joy. Today is the first I can keep my head up, even though the nose faucet is still working overtime.


Here is my entry for the new sketch challenge over at Just Us Girls and I really didn't want to miss a week, so here is what I was able to come up with. I used a digi stamp that I re-worked with lots of distressing and Stickles. I stamped and popped a sentiment stamp from Mel's Festive Frame set at Gina K. Designs. I used gold crystal stars for the twinkle in the 5 spot border. I added snow tipped MS branch punches with coordinating pearls as holly berries.


Thanks for looking and I also want to thank all of my stamping/blog friends on your thoughtful best wishes for my DD's engagement.
