Stamper's Dream & JustRite Mega Blog Hop - DAY 1

Happy Tuesday again!!!

If you are looking for my Flourishes card please click right HERE or scroll down one post....thank you!!!


The card I'm about to show you is for today's Mega JustRite March Blog Hop and guess what... the entire Stamper's Dream Team is participating!!! It's hugh - so grab a cup of coffee and check it out....Michelle the owner of the Stamper's Dream Store is giving this fabulous $100 Mystery Blog Candy away plus more goodies can be won by hopping along!!!


I made this card with the CAS59 - New York, New York in mind. I chose this beautiful flower image that was captured near a church.  It matches the Beautiful Blossoms Set from JustRite which can be purchased at the Stamper's Dream Store!!! The colors were inspired by this weeks Curtain Color Act #22 - using Red, Yellow, Pink and Black.



The image was inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers. The DP is from the BasicGrey Nook & Pantry Collection. The Flower Border Punch is from Martha Stewart and I added some Small Silver Pearls to the center of the flowers. The BG was embossed with the QuickKutz Striped Label Folder.

For my sweet little Nugget treats I added a stripe of  1" x 3 1/4" White CS and added a Black/White Checker Ribbon. I finished them off by adding a small punched out Flowers and Silver Pearls.


Here’s all the juicy details on what you need to know about the Blog Hop today!!!

24 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 Random.org. 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!
