Chic of the Week #3 and blog candy winner!

Ladies, ladies, ladies!  You are all so amazing!  I skipped from blog to blog checking out color challenge entries and let me just say, I had no less than FIFTEEN projects that were my personal favorites this week.  That is FABULOUS...unless you have to pick just one to highlight here on the blog as Chic of the Week.  LOL!  I just want you to know, having never done this before, I have new respect for the folks who pick projects to highlight in magazines and on blog sites.  It is way hard...there is just too much talent out there!  I am humbled ladies, just humbled!

But before the Chic of the Week, let me announce the randomly selected winner of the blog candy seen below.

The winner of the handmade posies is participant number................

Congratulations Silke! I'll be contacting you soon to get your mailing address so I can deliver your prize!  Thanks so much for playing along with Just Us Girls!

OK, now on to the Chic of the Week ....DRUMROLL please......after much deliberation, the highlighted project this week is this card from:  GWEN SNATER!!

Gwen's card caught my eye for it's perfect simplicity without looking simple! :)  The luscious red satin bow is wonderfully accented with the bright snowflake and the embossing with red gems looks like fine upholstery  matched up with the elegant scroll work of the die cut label.  Great job Gwen!  Congratulations!  I will be contacting you soon with your winner's badge.  We hope you'll wear it proudly :)

I hope everyone takes some time to click through all of the entries.  There are so many truly inspiring projects, pure eye candy I tell you!

I can't wait to see what you all come up with for JUGs challenge #4!  Get all the details here on saturday when our own Mona Pendleton demonstrates a fabulous technique by VIDEO!  You won't want to miss it! 

It's been a blast hostessing this round of creativity with Just Us Girls!  You all make me glad to be a GIRL!  :) Thanks so much for the great reception.  See you saturday!

I looked thru every single card that was submitted and I hate to be in Dana's shoes! There were some brilliant submissions and I absolutely remember Gwen's being one of them! As a matter of fact, I became a follower of her blog the same day I saw this card. Congrats!!!! Looking forward to playing again soon.
