Welcome to Just Us Girls Challenge #460~Wild Card Week, where our wonderful Angie has selected STRIPES to inspire us. Horizontal, vertical, diagonal...bring on those stripes!
Recently, my local retailer - scrapshotz - had a sale on her Simple Stories products. Her inventory included a variety of items from the Crafty Girl collection and, even though I've strayed away from patterned papers and have never - prior to this - used stickers or pre-made chipboard, I was smitten! I've already made four cards with this 'kit'...and the stripes challenge ensured another two to be made...
Another card for my sweet, crafty niece...
and another (I decided 'plaid' = stripes). I'm going to pepper Ms T with 'crafty girl' cards!!
For sensational STRIPES creations, please visit my fabulous design team - Sue, Angie, Vicki, Ina, Bobby, Nancy, Lisa, Maria - and our super talented September Guest Designer, Julie Beech.
Looking forward to seeing your interpretations of the STRIPES (whatever direction/s they may be) in the gallery.

Thank you for dropping by!
Great use of the DP Carol, I really should go through my v ancient collection and either use or chuck.
We had our first frost of the year last night, typically my OH ignored my comment that he might want to cover up his last batch of pointing. He was rather sheepish this morning when the roof was white! :)
Your wonderful use of the fun pattern paper means you need to use more! ;) These cards are simply delightful. Your sweet niece is one lucky, lucky girl to have such a wonderful auntie. Thanks so much for sharing!
Those faces are adorable, Carol. No wonder you were smitten with the set.
Brilliant cards carol...for that lucky niece of yours,and YES plaid is stripes isn't it...they just go both ways!! xx
I don't usually go for stickers or pre-made chipboard either but these are too adorable to pass up! love them both but the wide, happy stripes on the first card are especially fabulous!
Oh I adore color blocking stripes!
Love your cards! You rocked the stripe challenge my friend! LOVE!!!
Amazing friend!! I just love the beautiful backgrounds you created to highlight those adorable images!!
I am not usually drawn to such items either, but these came out fabulous! Really loving the gingham!
These are just so cute! Sometimes it's good to step out and use something different!

I so love the way you used the stripes on the first card with that cutie image. Adorable. Then you go and make another beauty with the plaid background and another cute crafty girl image. So sweet Carol.
