♥ J'Adore ♥ {JustRite Challenge #073}

♥♥ For today's Simon Says Stamp Post, please scroll down! ♥♥

Hi everyone! Just stopping in quickly with a shaped card I made for the current (about to end shortly! Yikes!) challenge at the JustRite Inspiration Blog. It is called "Anything but Square".


 For my card, I used Labels Twenty Dies by Spellbinders for the card base and matted frames. The stamps by JustRite are called Fleur De Lis Labels Twenty. That is one of my favorite stamp sets by JustRite!


 I also used lots of Liquid Pearls in White Opal, handmade stick pins by Elise, seam binding and some Prima roses.


 I will be back tomorrow with my giveaway winner! Thank you so much for the well wishes for my kids. They are both feeling better now! But now it's mommy's turn!! Yup! Now I am sick!! Oh, well! I guess that's what happens when you're a mom!! Right??  ;)

 Have a wonderful night!

Love your card. Beautiful! Sorry to hear you are sick. My daughter has young children and every time they get sick, she gets sick. That seems to be the way it works. Hope you feel yourself again soon.

CraftyLoops said...

Wow what a stunning card and I love the shape and those stickpins are absolutely beautiful. Sorry to hear you are now sick Melissa. The joys of motherhood, eh? My wee brother (who is only 11....I know, big gap in age! Im 21 years older than him, lol) was staying with us yesterday and he was dosed with the cold. Now hubby is up this morning and I quote "I feel like Im dying!!"......men and their illnesses! Its only a bloomin;' cold, lol. Hope you are better soon Melissa. Lee x

Tammy said...

Melissa!!
Super lovely!!! I admire the colors that you used along with how beautifully the stick pins match, too:) The spellbinders shape card is uber. This is inspiring to me as I'm pretty new with Spellbinders and have yet to create a shape card with them:) thank you for sharing and praying for a quick manifested healing:) be blessed

I actually got a peek of this project on the Just Rite blog when you entered it. I'm also playing along in that one with the hopes of winning some of their YUMMY stamps (cuz I can't afford them right now, LOL). Your project looked cute in the pic, but this is great seeing the whole thing....lovely, as always.
Do you see what happens when we, as Moms, take our super hero cape off for just one quick moment - we get sick! Hope you're back in your SuperMom cape soon, running in every direction - like Moms do!
Hugs,
Karen L
