"Just Us Girls" Challenge/Week 2

Home For The Holidays
Discovered a new challenge site yesterday (new to me anyway) called Just Us Girls. If you have a new lightbox, then you definitely need a card to photograph at midnight (or dark, cloudy rainy days like today). :) This is the card I did last night "burning the midnight oil." :)

The challenge at Just Us Girls was to have paper piecing on your card plus pink. I looked thru my stamps and found the house stamp by Hampton Art. I remembered some new patterned paper by Basic Grey in their Eskimo Kisses collection that had houses. I paper pieced the stamped houses to match that paper. Luckily the patterned paper had pink in it too. :)

Better get to stirring, there's always a lot to do on Mondays. :)

Bev these houses are just adorable with the paper piecing - and I love that one is PINK!!! *giggle* it's so fun to see girls taking up the option to use pink in honor of NBCAM. Thank you SO MUCH for playing along with Just Us Girls this week. I hope you really had fun and will come back again!

Oh girl! I LOVE your card! The sweet houses all in a row and the bold letters are just my style! Very eye catching. I like the dymo label sentiment too. Don't you love when you 1- remember you already own the perfect paper and 2- can actually find it?! Awesome!

Thanks so much for playing along with Just Us Girls!
