A Special Thank You to Spellbinder's!!!

Today is the last day of my tour on the 2009-2010 Spellbinder's Design Team.  I wanted to take this opportunity to say "Thank You" to Spellbinder's Paper Arts, especially Stacey & Jeff for all they have given me.  I came into this world of online crafting when I was chosen to be on your Design Team.  I have been crafting all my life, but up to a year ago I had not followed anyone or even searched out what was online.  I tried out and made the team.  What an incredible experience this has been.  I have learned so much from all of you and our wonderful Design team this year.  All the ladies on our team have come to be family.  This new year will bring lots of new and exciting things for each and every one of us, but I know to me this year will always hold special meaning.  Thank you Stacey, Jeff, and the Spellbinder's Family for all you have given me.  I want to wish all the new Design Team Members the very best.  May you enjoy every moment of your tour with Spellbinder's.  Thank You!!!!

Just Rite's Mega March Blog Hop Comments

Thank you all for you wonderful comments on my Flower Box & card.  I really enjoyed making it and sharing it with all of you.  It wasn't very difficult.  It was mainly coloring and cutting.  You all can make one too.  Also, those of you that commented on my blog heading, "The Cabin", it was drawn for me by my son, Zac.  He is a 2d animation artist.   Thank you for being so supportive of my work.  Have a wonderful day.

Just Rite Mega March Blog Hop Day 2

Today starts day 2 of Just Rite's Mega March Blog Hop.  Here is what I created for you.

I was inspired to create a Flower Box with matching card using Just Rite's "My Garden Borders & Center Round 3 1/4" stamp set.  I stamped each flower twice.  Colored in with my Copics, hand cut, layered together and hot glued them to wire wrapped with floral tape.  I covered a box I made with cardstock and Spellbinder's Renaissance Heart Border Petite to the top edge.  I added pearls and ribbon to the outside of the box.  I inserted a floral block inside of the box.  I then inserted the flowers into the floral block.  Added shred around flowers.  It is a wonderful gift for any special person in your life.  I hope you enjoyed my creation.  Maybe you will make one too.

Here is the run down of this incredible Blog Hop:
30 designers, FIVE shopping sprees each day.  No one knows where the prizes will be!  Each day of the hop JustRite will have five Mystery Blog Candy Prizes hidden along the hop with a total retail value of  $600.  JustRite will randomly select five mystery blogs each day of the hop and randomly allocate each of the shopping sprees.  For your chance to win, simply leave a little love (a comment) on each designer’s blog including the JustRite blog.  The more designers you leave comments with, the better your chances of winning.  Each day’s comments will remain open for three days.  A winner from each of the mystery blogs’ comments will be randomly chosen using  Consult the listing of designers at the JustRite blog each day (each day’s designers will be different) and start out on your way!  Beginning Friday, March 26, summaries of all the winners will be posted on the JustRite blog.  Good luck to everyone and enjoy all the JustRite eye candy along the hop!

Just Rite Friday Challenge

Here is a project I made for this weeks Just Rite Friday Challenge.  It is for Going Green, using recycled 3D items.  This mini cake was created using Ortega Green Chili can & the top to the frozen orange juice can.  I know, I save everything.  I used Just Rite "My Borders & Centers Round 3 1/4".  I colored the Pansies with my Copics.  Easy project to create for a small gift for a friend.  I hope you like it.
