Shiver me timbers!! ~ Just Us Girls


Hello … AGAIN!    I had the worse day imaginable yesterday after coming home from a crazy week.    Soooooo, my first thing to do is, of course, COLOR!    It really is my favorite form of therapy ~ in addition to a glass of vino!   Smiley from

I was happy to play along with the Just Us Girls (JUGS) color challenge for this week.    They are featuring the colors

orange, navy, green and cream

~ with the additional option to create a birthday card in celebration of Maria from the JUGS DT’s birthday.    Believe it or not, this IS a birthday card!    Happy Birthday Maria!   



Here’s the inside to prove it!



It’s pretty amazing what you can turn into a birthday card!     It definitely helped to relieve some of the stress.   🙂

Thanks for listening to my whining.    Hope you can stop back for a fun All That Scraps challenge tomorrow.
