Just Us Girls Word Week #596

Hi Everyone!  I am so excited to be the newest team member of Just Us Girls! I am grateful to be able to share my challenge cards with each of you, as well as have the opportunity to see your card creations each week.  Don't hesitate to reach out to me if you would like to talk.

This week at Just Us Girls... is WORD week.  Bobby has chosen the word HARVEST for our inspiration.  I think Harvest and I think of my father.  He is no longer with us but his spirit is strong in his garden.  My father loved to grow things and share the produce.  The last years of his life were happily spent tending his vegetable and flower garden.

I made a mini slim, kraft card (3.5" x 6").  I took a second mini panel of kraft (darker in color) and die cut Poppystamps' Vegetable Border.  This die is interesting in that it is 5.5" end-to-end, thus dictating the slim card to accommodate the length of the die. Using the edge of a ruler, I tore the panel along the top edge of the vegetables, then adhered to the card base.  I die cut the vegetable border a second time from scrap white cardstock, and Copic-colored the vegetables.  Each vegetable piece was inlaid into the kraft card base.  The stamped sentiment is from Rosie Roadshow.  Enjoy.

Be sure to stop by each of the DT member blogs, check out their cards, and leave them a little bit of love.

Happy crafting.  I am looking forward to your submissions.

This is darling, Elizabeth,although I can't imagine coloring and inlaying those tiny pieces. Fabulous card for your first team outing.

Congrats on being on the JUGS team Elizabeth! I can only imagine how long it took you to colour those teeny tiny vegetables. I love the sentiment!
