If you already read my crazy almost 1 in the morning post from my iPhone...then you know the big news! If not...HEY...I'M GUEST DESIGNER/CHALLENGER FOR JUGS!!!!!!! I am so stoked to be part of the JUGs for January! They're a semi new challenge blog and they are BOOMING!!! Their design team is magnificent and I feel like I'm playing 9 degrees of separation through them! I have a major craft crush on Lauren Meader...her stuff just BLOWS ME AWAY...so when I'm mingling amongst those in Lauren's company...well by gosh I feel star struck! LMBO! Ok...I'm talking crazy now! I'm on DayQuil and pain meds from last night and then sleep deprived...so don't mind my loopy morning blog behavior! But anywho...when Kristin contacted me if I wanted to be their VERY FIRST guest designer...I couldn't type any faster to reply with a YES YES YES! :D Thanks Kristin and thanks girls for giving me that shot! I'm honored!
Lisa Kind, who just happens to also be one of my kin folk (that cracked me up...I'm telling you...cold + pain meds = one loopy Gabby) for Paper Makeup Stamps is on the JUGs team, well she came up with this awesome straight forward sketch to play with! At first I was like...hmmmm...because like her...I am sketch-challenged...lol...so I guess I took it a bit to literal! I tried playing with different things like flowers and images...but nothing seemed to work. Then I though I'd score some point with Katie *thumbs up & smiles* and used Caffeine Trip from Paper Makeup Stamps! I really liked the coffee house feel to it...well...at least it kinda resembles a coffee house near me with cute doilies and funky wallpaper...lol. IDK...what do you think?
Head on over to check out what they girls have been up to! Leave them some love too!
If you play along with us...make sure you type in JUGS14 when uploading to an online gallery like Spiltcoast Stampers and link up to the JUGs blog. Bloggers...when you're done photographing your masterpiece using the above sketch...head on over to the JUGs challenge blog and link up your card (not just your blog...but your blog post for this challenge...makes it easier for us to find your creation) to Mr. Linky. Remember...to be entered to be Chic Of The Week...you must link your card by Thursday, January 7th by or before 9:00 PM EST!
Ok...I am SOOOO headed out back to bed. I may just lay there and watch some TV so I can fall back asleep...I need my sleep! That way there will be a happy Gabby stamping later on! :D Last night before I went to sleep it took me 3 hours to complete ONE card. No...it's not an all out extravaganza of a card...I was just too YUCKY feeling! LOL! Don't want a repeat today! See you all later as I start a resolution...to make my blog rounds!
