I love you,,,,,,,,More than Chocolate!!!

This is going to be a super quick blog post,,,,,I have a Disney World Park to get to LOL and it's been a CRAZY week,,,,,,,,,but I want to post this card for the Justrite Challenge in time!

The theme this 2 weeks was FANCY FOLDS,,,,,,,,I really really REALLY wanted to use a JR stamp that I just bought, that's a Christmas stamp,,,,,,,but NOT make a Christmas card,,,,,,,,,,,so how did I do??? Can you tell??

I hope not!!!! but yes, that striped paper there, is a JR stamp called the Merry Christmas Background stamp.
I simply covered the center up with spellbinders, and VOILA! no more Christmas! I love this stamp because, really, it's so darned useful for more than just Christmas! The paper I used for the background and the Romantic Rectangles that cover up the center panel is MME Lost and Found,,,,,,and then I layered my new Floral Ovals on top of that with my sentiment in the middle.

Here's my fancy fold card OPEN,,,,,

It's an Easel card!!!!!! See that little box right there that holds the card open???

this one!

Untie that bow,,,,,,,,,

It's for a friend,,,,,,,,,and the sentiments are Just Rite, of course,,,,,,,,,,the I love You on the front of the card AND the MORE THAN CHOCOLATE that I stamped with the JR Marketplace Alphabet I just won. Cute huh??

I'll also be entering this into the Simon Says Stamp challenge ANYTHING GOES!

Hope you enjoyed the card, and thanks for looking!!!!!!!!

  8. I too LOVED this BG stamp for being 'versatile' and used it for a non-Christmas JR challenge card recently too! Isn't it great to get multi-use from a Christmas stamp?!!!
    Both this GORGEOUS card and your patriotic mini album (and story behind it) are FABULOUS -- great job on each!!!

  9. I keep looking at this and not leaving a comment because I don't know what to say. I haven't figured out why I love this card so much. There is just something about it that I find absolutely appealing. I love this, it is beautiful !
