Just Us Girls Challenge #336: Photo Week


How's your weekend, so far?  I hope everyone had a great week, and were able to get crafty.  I am thankful that the craziness is over, and I got to relax a bit this week.  Unfortunately, my R&R will be short lived.  I have been given several work projects, and will be mostly MIA for a while.  I will try to get some stuff made, as time allows though.  Fortunately, as you read this, I am out and about having a great wonderful time exploring with a friend who is visiting for the weekend.  I'm going to take advantage of every opportunity I get, to do fun things. :-)

So there is another Just Us Girls challenge posted today.  This week's challenge is: Photo Week.  The photo inspiration this week is beach themed, and so lovely.  It's a little bittersweet for me.  I've had a great time guesting, but this is my last week to be featured.  Here is the beautiful photo we got to work with.

And here is the card I created.

I was hoping to create something more "beach" looking, but for the life of me, I couldn't find any stamps or embellishments that were beach themed.  I then decided to pick a few colors and elements from the photo, and created a nautical, masculine card.  I love how this turned out.  I love the white on kraft, and will be using this again, with other stamps.  I'm excited to have another card to add to my stash.  Never know when someone will need it.

That's all for me today.  I hope you'll head over to the Just Us Girls blog to see what beautiful cards are posted.  They're nothing short of awesome, as always!  Hoping you'll get a chance to join in the fun this week too.

Have a great weekend!

Sorry to see you go, Stef. I have loved seeing all your beautiful work, so talented. Hope we haven't seen the last of you. I love your sponging on this one, with the kraft for the background. Great take on the challenge, I really like the compass as the focal.

I love the blending on your background and those white stripes on the kraft, too! All together beautiful. Thank you for being our Guest Designer this past month and sharing all of your amazing creations! I hope to see more of you in our future challenges.

Love the masculine feel of your card. The stripes on the bg are very subtle but add so much. Thanks for being our guest this month!
