JUGS # 181 - Photo inspiration (and a sad good-bye)

Hello friends! Long time, no write...

This is indeed a sad post for me to compose, but, as they say, the writing is on the wall - this is to be my last post as a member of the Just Us Girls DT :'(.

I have been a part of the JUGS DT since 2010. And I have been playing along with the challenges since I started my blog back in 2009. So it's been a fixture in my life for quite a while... and I am sad to see it go :( The JUGS DT has changed a little over the years but all the ladies, past and present, are so, so wonderful!!! It has been my privilege and pleasure to be a part of something so special and met these amazing people :)

So, on to my last challenge... a photo inspiration challenge.

You don't have to use all the colors shown - the colors and the pics are merely for inspiration. 
And here's my take...

I used the tissue paper technique - stamp on a piece of cardstock, cover it with glue from a glue stick, then press on tissue paper (that has been previously crumpled). Pretty easy but gives a neat effect.

Please swing by the Just Us Girls blog and see all the fabulous inspiration that awaits! Thanks for constantly amazing us all, ladies!!! I'll be checking in on you all ;) Thanks for all the support, JUGS fans!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

We certainly are going to miss you, but I'm glad we will still be in touch! You've been a great member, but a better friend!

Love your card! I also love that technique. I've tried it once with great effect! You just might see it as a JUGS challenge someday! ;-)

Take care my friend!

Hello friend, I've missed you! Your card is divine. Goodness gracious what soft dreamy colors. Just perfect with Easter a few days away. You will certainly be missed at JUGS, your work for them always inspired me. Can't wait to see what you have in store for us next. ~Hugs

That is one cool technique! Love your card!
It always feels sad to step down from a DT and I'll miss your JUGS cards for sure!

This is very lovely. I love that technique but don't use it much. Perfect choice for this challenge. I am sad you are leaving the team just as I discovered this challenge as I totally love this card.
