Just Us Girls #405 - Word Week

Dear Ones~
This week is WORD WEEK over at Just Us Girls, and our gal Lisa has chosen the word SHOWER. We can use anything that has to do with shower, be it bridal or bathroom, baby or rain.

Here's my card:
I have had this Gina K umbrella stamp forever. I think it came from the Enjoy the Sunshine stamp set and it might even have been a kit. I fussy cut the umbrella with the background patterned paper and added some Nuvo Jewel Drops for rain. I have a bridal shower to go to this weekend, so this challenge was very opportunistic!! Yippee for me!!!

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Tomato Soup and Blue Denim Card
SU Delightful Dijon Card
GKD White Card
DCWV Pocket Bloom Patterned Paper
SU Layered Ovals Dies
GKD Enjoy the Sunshine Stamps
Balloon Pop Up Thinlits for Bow
Nuvo Crystal Drops

I would like to introduce our August Guest Designer, Darnell Knauss. Darnell is over the top creative!!! Just go visit her BLOG and see what I mean.
Please visit the JUST US GIRLS blog to see the wonderful examples that Darnell and the rest of the team have made this week. And remember, if you win Chic of the Week in any of our August challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of October!!   Good luck, and I hope to see you there.
