Jugs 214 Create a bg of words

Hi all!
Hope you're having a great weekend.

I have a card made for the Just Us Girls Challenge blog, 
which asks us to use a word background on our cards.
I'm excited to say I was chosen to be their guest designer for the month of November!
You  could have knocked me over when I got the email from Vicki Dutcher, one of the designers 
of the 'JUGS' blog.

Here's the challenge photo:

So happy I could use PTI's new stamp set, Background Basics: Christmas Joy.
It's just full of Christmas words. Pretty good background for a Christmas card!

Can't seem to get enough of Two Feet Deep, another set from PTI.
The Pinecone swag was created with Peaceful Pinecones.
Tiny Tags die and Lil Inkers bow and stitching dies.

This is a fun challenge blog with some talented designers leading the way.
