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.

 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.
