JUGS - Just Us GirlS Challenge - Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

Hey y'all!

Have you tried my friend Lisa Kind's JUGS challenges?  It's pretty cool 'cause they host a different type of challenge each week - sketch, color, templates....you get the idea.

This week it's a sketch challenge and I used it to vent a little about my unfortunate incarceration - subtly, of course!

The awesome little tag from the paper pack (CTMH's Notebook) afforded me the opportunity to circle the exact date of my layoff...and then at the bottom is my editorial comment - 'f-r-e-e-d-o-m'.  tee hee

I sliced up some Prima flowers I've had for eons.  This quick card took maybe 15 minutes to make, which is a record for me!

I'm having a blast doing these challenges....and lovin' the return of my mojo!  New Spellinders(TM) die templates are on the way.....ah, life is great!

Peace out,

Your card is awesome, and it sounds like your spirits are right back up there. That is great. As for the new Spellbinders dies, I am certain I will be green with envy! LOL. Can't wait to see what you do with them!

Hey Deb, your card is darling. You sound in good spirits. Hope all is well.

This is a fab card Deb! I love the design - the papers, lace, and especially the ticket!

I love the paradigm shift - FREEDOM. Yes, I can tell you I've been on both sides of a company reorganization myself. They are both awful - but the one where I got laid-off was the one that resulted in a wonderful new adventure. The other experience was just a lot more work and anxiety.

You'll be fine!
Hugs!

Your card is so shabby chic and wonderful! I LOVE all the details. I'm sorry you got laid off....but your mojo is certainly "on the job!"

You seem to have great mojo Deb when your venting...Love your take on this weeks sketch! Like the flower border and the measuring tape looks awesome! So sorry about your layoff. :0(
