JiFFy Girls are BACK: Sweetest Day Ever

My Just For Fun challenge friends are back in action after a long winter’s nap. We call ourselves the JiFFy Girls! Michele Boyer sweet Carole Burrage, Alli Miles, Julie Campbell (who has the sweetest of paper crafty announcements on her blog today! CONGRATULATIONS, JULIE! LOVE YOU!) and myself with a special guest this month, the fabulous Cammie King! Each time we play, one of us picks an image – this month it was Julie who picked this little number, Sweetest Day from Unity Stamp Company, and one of us picks some patterned paper – this month Carole sent us darling Madison Plaid from the new Little Girls line by Echo Park. It’s kind of secretive and totally random, so some months are a little rough. I mean, can you imaging getting this darling stamp and some cowboy patterned paper? The girls did good this month!

My strawberry is colored very simply with smooth circles and Copic Marker. The berry is a flat RV29 and the stem is YG23. That’s it!

So, on my tag, I used the sweetest tag dies made by Spellbinders for JustRite Stampers in the Happy Everything kit (seriously stamps, dies and stamp block in one kit – happy everything). The bright pink frame on the tag is actually the die cut shape. The white sentiment nests inside that frame, as opposed to layering on top of a solid tag that same shape. I love that. I highlighted sweetest with an R20 marker and punctuated with a pearl that was colored with RV29.

I always love seeing what the JiFFy Girls do with these challenges. I hope you have a few minutes to check out their posts. They are always inspiring. Here are the links for you one more time: Michele Boyer sweet Carole Burrage, Julie Campbell, Alli Miles and special guest this month, Cammie King.
