Happy Day for Just Us Girls # 367

Hi Everyone.  Happy Friday.  I am sad to say that this is my last turn as guest designer at Just Us Girls.  I have had such a fun time with this wonderfully talented group of ladies and want to thank all of them for having me play along.  I was glad that this was a 5 week month, as it gave me one extra week to play along :-)

Here's the great challenge for tonight

I used one of my Altenew sets to stamp the flowers.  Once I was happy with the flowers, I ran the front panel through my Big Shot with the Halftone Happy Altenew die to pop the sentiment out.  I stamped the sentiment and ran it through with the die to create a contrasting sentiment to the flowers.  I ran the die-cut through with white card stock so that I could layer multiples on top of each other so that it stood just a little proud of the card base.  To make the Happy pop just a little more, I added some glimmer and shine.  I then added the rest of the sentiment.

I hope you will join us at JUGS this week.  I can't wait to see what you do with this challenge.

On a personal note:

I have a single photo for you tonight.  I love these little guys - they are so full of personality and light up our garden.

Nuthatch (1 of 1)-4

 Their calls are so distinct.  If you want to know more about these fabulous little birds - including their call - you can check this out here.

I'll be back tomorrow with my Addicted to CAS challenge.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight - including my Tinkerbell.

I love the soft floral background and the way your sentiment just pops! This is yet another stunning creation that you have awed us with. It has been a real pleasure having you with us this past month as our Guest Designer and I hope to see more of your creations in our future challenges.


Gorgeous, Jaydee. CAS perfection. OK I read twice but still not getting how you framed out the sentiment. Are there two different size happy dies? Love it.

We were fortunate enough too, that we got to have you an extra week! This card is super! Love the way you did the happy portion! Hope to see you among the gallery from time to time! Thanks again!


Love your card and the colors you chose. The blue sentiment really makes the color pop. It's always fun to watch a nuthatch flit about.


Love how simple this card is and such a stunner! Love your take on our sentiment challenge. So glad we got to have you as our Guest for October and see such talent. Hope tosee you again at JUGS.

Lucky for us too, that there was an extra Saturday in the month! Your card is stunning, Jaydee! Love the soft colors and that you popped the 'happy'sentiment up a bit! Thank you so much for being our Guest Designer at Just Us Girls! I hope to see more of your amazing creations in the gallery! ((hugs!))
