Thank You, Bear-y Much!...Just Us Girls Challenge #422~Word Week: Anything Goes

Hello,

A while back, I received an unexpected, surprising and ohmystars note and request from my wonderful friend, Vicki.  Let's just say that after catching my breath, controlling my wild happy dancing, and wearing the brightest of smiles, I was able to fashion an answer of yes, yes and yes! Today, I finally get to spill the beans:

I am over-the-moon ECSTATIC to share that I'm joining the Just Us Girls design team!

Talk about an honour in having opportunity to play alongside some of *the* best, sweetest designers in the craft-iverse! Call me thrilled and excited! Without further ado, let's get the ball rolling...

Welcome to Just Us Girls Challenge #422~ Word Week, where our incredibly talented Vicki has chosen *Anything Goes* as this week's theme. Perfect way to start the new year, right? Right!!

My card features the darling bear image from the monthly Kit and Clowder colouring class I'm enrolled in (I actually completed my December assignment on time!); isn't he darling! Of course, still plenty to learn, especially in creating fur and getting light sources 'just so.'  I'm dedicating this little cutie pie to my new team: THANK YOU for your warm welcome!


Our guest designer this week is  Cathy McCauley [cathymac]; you'll adore her card as you will those of my new team-mates! Please head over, enjoy their delights and then: join us in the gallery!

Excited to see where Anything Goes takes you!

Thank you for dropping by!

Welcome to the team, Carol. It's always my honor and pleasure to serve with you. That bear is darling and your coloring of his fur is amazing. I'd say that class is bringing out the artist in you.
