Wishing You a Bountiful Harvest

JUGSsketch

Hey everyone!!  Happy October!!  I have some exciting news to share with you!!  About 2 months ago, Pam, from the Just Us Girls challenge blog asked if I would like to hang out with all the JUGS girls for the month of October.  Now, many if not all of you know that I’m in between homes, but after looking at the schedule of things was able to make this work…plus I WANTED to make it work :)  One of the JUGS ladies is my dear blog buddy, Andrea, who recently moved back to Canada.  AND to make things even sweeter, Pam asked if I would like to provide the first week’s challenge sketch!  Would I!!  So here it is…look familiar?  lol  I picked one of my favourite sketches I made up a few months ago and used HERE.  I had this orange satin ribbon on my mind and then decided I should make a beautiful thank you card for the owners of the pumpkin patch where I’ll take my class at the end of the month.  Those yummy leaves are cut out of canvas and then stamped on…I love the muted look of the ink on canvas :)  Want to join in?  Head over to the Just Us Girls challenge blog right now for all the details and some more delicious samples :)  Woohoo!!

So happy to see this sketch again! I loved it when I CASEd it in August. Congrats on this fun gig! I just may have to find some time to play in between assignments and soccer games. I'm not sure I can pass this up! Love the combination of browns, oranges and blues in your card. So pretty!

Maureen! It's so mice to have you in the JUGs ranks this month! WE are so excited to have you! Great sketch too...I am loving all the variations on the elements you gave us. Your color and patterns plus awesome touches like the gold bling and the woodgrain (you and Andrea are total enablers with your beautiful designs!). Love!

Super glad you are our October guest designer Maureen! Your card is just beautiful! I just love your leaves and you made them using canvas...love the texture it gives them and that big orange bow is awesome!

Oooh congrats on the guest DT spot, Diva!!!! It's no wonder really - a Diva like yourself who can still find time to ink up and share her fab cards with us whilst in the process of being in-between homes has me wondering if you're super-girl or something!
Totally diggin' the autumnal feel to this beauty (even though we're mid-heatwave right now!) those layered leaves are fabby!
Hugs,
Duchess

Simply STUNNING Maureen - not only was the sketch just a knock your socks off winner but your project is even better - I'm totally drooling over your bow and those canvas leaves? Pure perfection. THANKS for providing us with a sketch and for a fabulous start to your time with JUGS! C'est magnifique!
