JustRite's Friday Challenge!

Good morning! Today is JustRite's Friday Challenge day! The challenge this week is to color your stamps directly with markers. I used JustRite's 2" You're So Sweet set and pulled out my very dusty SU! markers for this challenge. I was surprised they didn't disintegrate when I pulled the cap off! Yes, it has been that long since I've used them last. I just colored the two parts of the stamp and did a breathy huff to moisten them before I stamped on paper. I cut them out with various circle Spellbinder's dies. The edges of the smallest circle were glittered and I added a little clear dangly piece to hang off the bottom. (Words are escaping me today......sorry for the in precise wording!) I also added a few pearls to finish it off. The entire box was cut using a Big Shot die that I ordered from SU! I love that you can put little gifts, candy, etc inside for the recipient.
See the clear little "dangly" thing? What the heck is that thing called?


JustRite has all of their Memento Markers on sale, so be sure to check that out! Check out the JustRite blog to see what the other DT gals have come up with for this week's challenge.

It has been quite the week! Cortney had the flu....and then I got a touch of it. Ick. We are finally over that when I got a Dodgeball injury. Yep. Teachers Vs. Students on Wednesday. I am good. I got kids out left and right......but unfortunately I used muscles in my body that haven't been used in a long time......or ever. ; ) I think it is sign of getting too old to play Dodgeball! ; ) Kyle got his acceptance letter to a private high school that he wants to go to next year.......so that was pretty exciting! Tomorrow we get our taxes done. Fun. Cort has a basketball game and then we are going to dinner with the kids. Sunday is my PJ day.....and crafting day. My most favorite day of the week. Annnnnnnnnndddd.......Monday? The kids and I have off! Woooohooo!
Have a great weekend! Hope you are doing something fun!

I am always guaranteed "the pretty" when I visit! Lovely...I really like that paper!

Yay for your boy! And like Cort, Ave is sick too with the flu. And good for you on the dodgeball...I do it with my kids all the time (I pretend I am being playful but I am sure it is some sort of twisted revenge on my part!).
