JUGS and the Wild Wild West

Howdy Pardners...
It's A Just Us Girls Saturday and today is technically a "technique" day - but we're going with a THEME this week. One of our DT members, Alicia, is organizing a charity rodeo in memory of her son, Ethan. All proceeds will go for neuroblastoma research. Here's the link to the rodeo website. The JUGS decided that in support of Alicia and her efforts with the rodeo we want y'all to create a card with a WILD WILD WEST theme! How fun is that? Alicia we wish you well and tip our (cowboy) hats to you ma'am!


We have a couple of nice surprises too - we are THRILLED to have a special Guest Designer joining us for this challenge. We'd like y'all to offer a warm JUGS welcome to Theresa Momber (from Gina K Designs). If y'all don't know, Theresa is one of Gina K's stamp illustrators and she designed a wonderful stamp set about a year ago called Out West. She will also be donating one of her wonderful Out West stamp sets to one lucky winner (random draw) who participates in the JUGS challenge this week. (Thank you Theresa for your generous blog candy!!)

If y'all need an image to help you play along here are a few resources. These digi images were initially sold as fundraisers by PinkCatStudio in Ethan's honor.

So let's get on with it and see what the JUGS have come up with as inspiration for y'all to get your Wild West Mojo flowin'.

(Jo's from Down Under so her "Wild Wild West" theme has a bit of an Aussie flair to it!)

Here is some additional inspiration from the wonderful
