JustRite Friday Challenge & a chance to win :)

I can't believe it is Friday already!  When one of the girls has a day off of school it totally mixes me & my little old routine up :) I am however ready to present to you this weeks Friday Challenge at JustRite Stampers.  To be eligible to win a $50 JustRite voucher you simply need to create a tag!  I personally loooove tags - they are fun, quick (well usually) and so versatile.

For today's project I embellished a pre-made tag.  I picked up this fun little packet of tags at a clearance sale.  The set of 4 wooden tags is from a company called Laura's Crafts and cost me 99c!   Now that is what I call a bargain.  The beautiful heavenly paper is from Basic Grey's Mellow collection. The beautiful sentiment is from JustRite's Thinking of You set which comes with 6 borders and thoughtful sentiments.  I also used my SpellbindersPetite Ovals Small Nestabilities™ which I attached to my tag with Fiskars Adhesive Foam.  The little clip is from Making Memories and the butterfly is Chatterbox.

Everyone & anyone is welcome to join these weekly challenges on the JustRite blog. For those of you that have a little free time on your hands and like to plan ahead - here is the challenge schedule for the coming weeks:

  • March 5: Terrific Tags
  • March 12: Go Green for St. Patty's Day! (Recycle or reuse any 3D item you already have and make it into something different -- not necessarily green!  i.e. make a gift box out of an old Valentine's Day candy box, etc., as long as a JR stamp is used on it)
  • March 19: Mix & Match (mix & match 2 different JR stamp sets like a border from an image set with a center from a sentiment set.  Monograms with decorative border doesn't count since those 2 are made to go together and sold in the same kit)
  • March 26: Sympathy Card

Happy Friday

Hi Kazan!
On your question how I made the nest and egg I did like this: The nest is made from a decoration you can buy in the flower shop, I don´t know what it´s called but here in Sweden it´s a common decoration on flower arrangements. The I just swirld it to a round "bowl" and glewed it on my card. The egg is a real egg that I took a needle and pinched both sides of the eggs. Then you blow from one side and the contains of the egg comes out on the other side. Then I glewed it on the nest with a heatgun. Let me know if this explanation was tricky. My english is not the best :-)
Hugs Monica!
