Just Us Girls Challenge #507~Photo Week...Sunflowers

Hello,

Can you believe we're at the final Saturday of September already! And, as per usual for this time of year here in Alberta, it's a snowy/rainy brrrrrr weekend! Lily and I are staying home, cozy and warm, while my husband officiates cyclo-cross races (they run, rain/snow/shine...'tis not a sport for the faint of heart *grin*). Maybe we'll bake cookies...okay, forget the 'maybe'. We will be making cookies!

On a more 'summery' note, welcome to Just Us Girls Challenge #507, where our lovely Maria has selected a beautiful sunflowers scene to spark inspiration. Gorgeous!


This challenge is Janet Ribet's finale as our September guest designer; thank you so much for all your incredible inspiration this month! Please check out her wonderful card, along with those from the fabulous JUGS team: Sue, Angie, Vicki, Ina, Bobby, Nancy, Lisa and Maria. They would love to know you dropped by.

Brand-spanking new Sunny Studio stamps/dies in the house (they arrived Thursday evening, so I was scrambling for play time!) and oh my...swooning! I don't often use flowers on my cards, but these? Exception made! Love sunflowers; love these beautiful images! Of course, I had to make a second card...and have a few sunflowers left for another project. Oh...and the set includes the cutest little bees, too! You can see one buzzing about on my first card.



That's it from me!
Looking forward to see how the photo inspires you!


Thank you for dropping by!

Sounds like you have a warm and cozy weekend planned, Carol. How fun for you and Lily. I feel for you husband. He must LOVE what he does, right? Your cards are gorgeous. Those are some beautiful sunflowers and I really like the combo with the deep red. It sure helps the yellows pop. Thank you for sharing! Hugs!

I love reading your post-Carol! They always make me smile and wish we were neighbors. I would love to sit down with you and eat your cookies and stamp the day away. Anyways, back to reality. I NEED this stamp! Those sunflowers are gorgeous!!!! Darn, a day late and a dollar or two short! I just placed a massive order with SSS too. Massive for me anyways. I am soooooo impressed with both of these cards. HUGS!

Two beauties Carol. Amazing colouring of the sunflowers and lovely layout as you always do. The red from the barn really makes them pop perfectly.

Your sunflowers are so pretty and great timing on receiving them! Both of these creations are beautiful and I love your use of the red.

These are so pretty! I love Sunny Studios flower stamps and you made them look so good! They are both pretty, but the red on the second one really pops! Lovely cards!
