Citrus...Just Us Girls Challenge #448~Word Week

Hello,

Welcome to Just Us Girls Challenge #448~Word Week where I, as the hostess for this challenge, have selected *CITRUS* to spark your creativity. 


Several ways to interpret this word: citrus images, citrus colours, citrus images + citrus colours (or not *grin). Whatever direction you take, I know it will be fantastic!

If you've come from - or are heading to - the challenge blog, you'll see an array of fabulous cards from our July Guest Designer, ever-so-talented Julia Aston and my talented teammates: Sue, Angie, Vicki, Ina, Bobby, Nancy, Lisa, Maria.  Please drop b their places and leave them some love.

Two cards for you today, featuring my new citrus set from Studio Katia.  My zigs and I had yet a few more play dates in getting these coloured. As you can see, I went with 'typical' orange/yellow/green for my first card...


then jazzed things up with a splashy colour combo for the second....
 

Here's the duo...


I *may* be liking my zigs a bit more...but still so much more practice 
required to get the highlights/shadows figured out...Carrying on! 

Looking forward to seeing your *CITRUS* creations in the gallery!

Thank you for dropping by!

Two lovely cards using this wonderful fruits border stamp Carol! Perfect for your word challenge - you're doing very well with your ZIG's - I hear ya on needing time to sit and play - I'm always trying to get it done fast and so never learn how to shade properly - my Zigs remain on the shelf :( I really like the splashy colors on your 2nd card! I'm so happy to be joining you all as guestie this month!
