Howdy-do! It's time for another JUST FOR FUN challenge with my JiFFy girlfriends. This month, brand new Dirty Girl, Julie, selected a scrumptious plaid, "Blueberry Hill," from We R Memory Keepers' Vintage Blue collection. She kept it a secret and mailed it to the rest of the gang, then Alli revealed the image she selected: a comfy chair from PTI's Chair-ished set. Most of the time, the image-picker sends out her selected image to everyone, but this month I told Alli to hold off -- Chair-ished is so cute and versatile, I had to have it for myself.
Here's my clean and simple July JiFFy...
Now just hold your horses. I know what you're thinking. "Clean and simple = lazy." I've thought that before, myself. But don't be such a snob. Clean and simple really forces one to execute a good design. No hiding underneath layers of cardstock and embellishments. Why, I would be THRILLED to receive a CAS card from any of you! Do you know how long it's been since I received some home-made happy mail? AGES! Are you feeling a wee bit guilty? Well, you should. Would it kill you to send me a card every now and again? Or remember me in your nightly prayers? Or put me in your will? No. It wouldn't...
So, card details: The sweet chairs are paper-pieced and the edges of the layers have been inked in PTI's Vintage Cream ink. I created a little paper ribbon embellishment and topped it with a sparkly PTI button and tied it off with a tiny bit o' twine. The card is long-note sized (3.25"x6").
Please stop by my fabulous fellow JiFFy gals' blogs to get their takes on this month's challenge:

(Lori Craig is taking a break this month -- she's up to her ears in CHA prep and what not -- but I'm sure she'd appreciate a little love from you just the same. :) )
Hey, I have an idea! When you leave them comments, be sure to add something like "You know, you really should consider mailing this to Carole..." In terms of karma, it might be the best thing you do all day!
