Just Us Girls Guest Designer

Apologies for being absent and for not being able to return comments, we still have no broadband, that's 8 days now, thanks 3!  A problem with the mast in our area according to the Indian call centre but they can't tell us when it'll be working again!! Unbelievable!! I guess we're not a priority because we live in a rural area, I've heard service in Co.Donegal was down for nearly two weeks, so I'm not holding my breath as to when we'll get our broadband back!! Sorry for the rant but it's very frustrating. I'm at my mom's at the moment, scheduling several blog posts!!!

Ok, I'm really enjoying being Guest Designer at Just Us Girls Challenge, this week's challenge #84 is a really cool technique - 'Kissing with a twist', here's the link to the tutorial. I used the large polka dot stamp from Gingham & Co by Waltzingmouse Stamps and stamped a little flower (from Marianne Design) in pink onto the polka dot stamp and gave it a little twist, then stamped the whole thing. I loved this technique, I'll definitely be trying it again! That pretty lace die is from Marianne Design.

The sentiment is from Say it Loud by Waltzingmouse Stamps, this is another really cool set, I just love that font, really gorgeous!! The pink and white baker's twine is from The Ribbon Reel.

I love how this one turned out! Now don't forget to visit the Just Us Girls Challenge to see the wonderful creations from the design team!!
