Just Us Girls #613 -- WORD Week

Welcome Back to JUST US GIRLS!

I am excited about 2022 and hope my creativity (and yours!) manifests itself into some amazing cards.

We are welcoming two guest designers for the month of January.  We will have these talented ladies for five weeks sharing their inspiration.  Please be sure to stop by and check out their posts.

This week at Just Us Girls, Nancy has chosen the WORD: BEVERAGE. Given it is New Year's Eve, I felt a cocktail would be appropriate. I made a martini shaker using Picket Fence's Martini Glass. The glass was die cut from dark gold Stardream cardstock, and filled with a shiny mix from Little Things from Lucy's Cards. The shaker was mounted on a Stampin' Up DSP cardbase. The white embossed sentiment is from Two Lips Stamps. As a final touch, I made an olive spear using a flat toothpick and Copic-colored olives assembled from die cut circles.

Enjoy! I am looking forward to your BEVERAGE creations in the gallery.
Happy New Year!
