Mama said there’d be days like this . . .


Happy Tuesday!   Hope you’re having a great week.   I recently found a – new to me – challenge blog that I thought would be fun to try this week.   It’s called JUGS!   a/k/a Just Us Girls.   This week’s challenge is to make a card using this apron template . . .


The template can be found on the JUGS blog, along with all the details.   Thought it would be fun to give it a try!   So, I pulled out one of my Magnolia images from the A Little Yummy For Your Tummy Collection ~ Oops Tilda.   



I’ve used paper again from the new Olivia Basic Grey 6×6 pad for this cutie.  For the scalloped trim, I cut several rectangles using a Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Scalloped Long Rectangle die to match the border on the mat.   Tilda has been colored with Copics, cut out and attached with dimensionals to a Large Mega Scalloped Oval die.   The sentiment is computer generated.


I probably should give this one to my daughter Jessica!   She’s pregnant and actually due on July 14th ~ She has, however been having LOTS of contractions for the past FIVE days.   So, I’ve been babysitting for my twin cutie granddaughters off and on throughout.   Jessica and Brian actually took a trip to the hospital yesterday (very) early morning – only to be sent home since she’s not quite ready!!    Eeeeek.   I imagine we’ll be having a new baby any day though!   Yay!   😀

Thanks for stopping by!


Copics Used:   R20, 22, 24, 29, 30;  YG45;  BV31;  E000, 00, 11, 30, 33, 35, 37, 50, 51, 53, 57;  W0, 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10;  T1, 3, 5


  1. This is one of nicest cards I’ve seen in a long time. The plaid paper is to die for, I’m going to need to get some!
