Just Us Girls #422 - WORD Week

WELCOME BACK to the Just Us Girls Challenge! The Team is all refreshed from spending time with family and friends, and ready to go. With this challenge word, I hope you are too!

Before I get to the word and graphic for this challenge, I want to WELCOME our newest design team member.  I'm sure you have all seen her on social media, and maybe you even follow her crazy full blog!  The girl is so busy, but she accepted our offer to join the team. [We were all thrilled!]  Please help me in welcoming..........

CAROL MAYNE, otherwise known as Just Me: c.
Here is a little bit about "c";

Hello, I’m Carol (aka *~c*), waving from my small town at the edge of the scenic Rocky Mountains in Alberta, Canada. My card-making journey began when I decided to make and send Happy *Month Old* cards to my niece, who was 2 ½ at the time. She’s now 6, my nephew is 4 - and yes, the monthly card ‘tradition’ continues. The ‘epic messes’ of my first attempts sent me searching the internet for ideas and WOW! Did I find them! The discoveries revealed sparked a passion, and here I am, thoroughly immersed in playing with paper, stamps, dies and ink. Of course, the friendships made through this warm, encouraging community are treasured immensely. I’m truly honoured and delighted to be joining the Just Us Girls team; talk about a dream come true!  THANK YOU for this amazing opportunity!

Okay, onto the challenge.

Let's also welcome our January Guest Designer, Cathy McCauley [cathymac]. She created such a pretty silhouette card for this week;

Now for the Team:


Just a reminder: If you win Chic of the Week in any of our January challenges, you are in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of March.
