Happy New Year!
May your 2021 be richly blessed with health, happiness, reunions with loved ones and, of course, loads of crafting time! In a nutshell: I hope you experience JOY in abundance!
After a month off to rest and relax, the JUGS team returns, fresh and rejuvenated, with challenges galore to whet your creative appetites. This week, for Just Us Girls Challenge #565, our sweet Nancy has selected HELLO as our word prompt; perfect to welcome to the new year.
This month, we're thrilled to have two guest designers joining us: Melanie Hungerford and Carol McFarland. Welcome! Their Hello cards are delights; if you have a chance, do drop in with a Hello at their blogs, as well as those of my fabulous teammates.
Finally, finally, I brought out my Concord & 9th's Hey, There turnabout and inked up a bunch of panels with various inks. I selected this one for our challenge...
Oh...and I gave my C & 9th mini inks a 'real' work out. Initially, I wasn't sure about them but I tried (at long last!) a technique suggested by other 'esteemed' crafters (i.e. Jennifer M): giving the new stamps a light scrub with a dry cloth to remove any residue, pre-inking. The results were fabulous! A little trick that does the trick!!
Looking forward to your Hello cards in the gallery!
