Just Us Girls Week 3 - Color Challenge

Welcome to the 3rd challenge presented by "Just Us Girls"!

First of all, WOW!  We are so excited that so many of you are playing along with Just Us Girls!  Thank you so much for giving our challenge site such a sweet welcome!  Are you ready for a color challenge??  Keep your creative mojo going with these three colors this week: aqua, red, and cream.   



As you can see in the graphic above, we've used color names from Papertrey Ink for reference. You do not, of course, need Papertrey Ink products to participate, these are just for reference.  The "Hey There Cookie" DP is from the Cosmo Cricket Early Bird collection...I love this line!  So what will you make?  These colors can play happily with vintage themes, winter themes, etc.  From graphic to shabby chic, the field is wide open.  Let's play!

How to play: You need to upload your project using this week's challenge to your online blog or public photo gallery. Leave a link that goes directly to your project in the Mr. Linky form at the end of this post. If you upload to online galleries, please also use the keyword or tag, JUGS3. After you post to Mr. Linky please leave a comment on this post.

Deadline to be considered for our weekly top pick called "Chic of the Week" is 9:00 PM EST on Thursday, October 22. All entries need to be posted to Mr. Linky by that time. "Chic of the Week" will be announced on the Just Us Girls blog post on Friday morning following the deadline. (You may still post to Mr. Linky after the deadline, your project just won't be considered for our "Chic of the Week" top pick.)

And now, "Just Us Girls" presents a little inspiration to get you started!


Blog Candy:  OK, so it's no $25 gift certificate BUT, I thought it would be fun to offer some blog candy this week that will be handmade just for YOU!  The fabric flower on the card above was made by little 'ol me!  I am loving this handmade flower technique and thought it would be fun to randomly chose a winner to receive an envelope full of these made out of various vintage fabrics.  What do you think?  Want some?  Join in on the color challenge for a chance at some Paper Daydream Posies :)  Make something, anything, with the colors aqua, red and cream and link us in the Mr Linky below. 

Have fun and good luck! Thanks for playing along with Just Us Girls!

I made my card last week but the colors match, although the aqua was hard but used Sage Shadow. Thank you for the challenge.

Thank you girls for the lovely comments on my blog! I had never so many comments for one project!
Thanks a lot!

Deanna said...

Great challenges ladies!

karlak said...

Thanks so much for the beautiful color inspiration! I am looking forward to the next challenge!

saspnll said...

I was so excited I did the challenge and then realized I should have used red, not raspberry. I think raspberry is part of the red family! I still enjoyed participating in the challenge. I am a Principal in a middle school and some of my students made me a blanket for Breast Cancer Awareness month. I made this card to thank them.

Chupa said...

I love the colours that you've chosen, and the flower is simply AWESOME!
I'm glad to have found this place, I think I'll be coming back for more girls :)

Jenna said...

Beautiful cards ladies, those flowers are so cute!

Barbara said...

FUN color combo, ladies!!!

Colleen Wold said...

LOVE this color combo! Thanks for the challenge! I am just loving this challenge blog! Keep the fun challenges coming! :)

Jennie said...

Hello Ladies! What fabulous flowers Dana! I finally got mine made and uploaded to SCS since I don't have time to write up a post for my blog...was thinking on this one a week nearly before I finally got a chance to put it together. I used Cool Caribbean since I don't have the Aqua Mist from PTI. Got to say again how much I love your challenge blog! It is growing by leaps and bounds and so happy for you all. Have a wonderful day!!!!!

Payne Holler Cards said...

whew! I finally made it over here!...have been watching your blog and love seeing it grow so fast!! lot of familar names over here :)
glad this is random pick - looked at some of these cards and they are awesome!!!

karlak said...

You girls do such a great job making comments on each and every entry. Your thoughtfulness is very much appreciated! You are proving to be a very hospitable challenge blog, and I commend you!!!

Melisa Waldorf said...

OH NO!! I didn't read all the details well enough. I assumed I had til Saturday since the Challenge was posted on saturday : (. Well I worked hard on the card, so I'm linking it anyway. I hope that's ok and I will work faster next time, hehe!

Heather Schlatter said...

Oooops it's my first time playing, and I did not read it carefully enough either I made my cards earlier this week but I could not link them until my post was up and I made my cards for the DT post I have to post on Friday's guess that means I am not elligible either???

HI to Kristin and Alicia!!! From Heather Schlatter
