Joan's Garden- JustRite Blog Hop


Hello Everyone!

 Today is a very exciting day for me!
I have been invited to be a Guest Designer for
                                                 Joan's Garden JustRite Blog Hop.
Wow this is a first for me and I have to tell you
I almost fainted when I got the email invitation!!!
In fact when I went to tell me husband, he got
really worried when he looked up at me, he
thought I had gotten some very bad news, I was
in such a shocked state. Of course a few hours
later when the shock wore off, I was doing the
happy dance and hugging him, and smiling like
a Cheshire cat !!! Hope I don't mess this up LOL
Be prepared this is a long post but oh so worth it!.

So now onto the good stuff, PRIZES!!!!!

This week Selma and Joan have invited 12 guest designers to join them in a Blog Hop featuring JustRite stamps. You won't want to miss all the inspiration in the beautiful cards created by these talented designers. While visiting each of these blogs, you have a chance to win another great prize from Joan's Gardens. In order to be eligible for one of these two prize packages, you need to leave a comment on each blog in this Hop (12 guest designers, Selma and Joan's). Out of the fourteen blogs, there are two "mystery" blogs, each with a prize package from Joan's Gardens. For a chance to win, be sure to leave a comment on all fourteen blogs.

Lana  (you are here)


 Here is my card



For my card I used The "Beautiful Blossoms" stamp
set from Just Rite. I used SU cardstock. My Oval Scalloped
Grand Nestibilities. Memento black ink and Copic markers.
I had to use my Distress ink of course LOL.
My gold Pilot marker.The gold heart, rhinestones,
ribbon and gold thread were from my stash.
I also used a candy stick from Michaels that
I colored by running it over my Distress ink pad.
I cut out parts of the flowers and layered them.
Well now you have seen my card it's time
for you to leave a comment and go on to
the next blog and who knows maybe you
will be a winner of one of the
FABULOUS PRIZES!!!

Good luck everyone!!
and
 Thank you Joan and Selma for inviting me to be
a part of this wonderful  Blog Hop, you truly made my day!
Hugs
Lana
