When the Going Gets Tough....

the Tough get CRAFTY!! ;)

Life hasn't been perfect here at the ol' homestead....but,
I'm not one of those to share everything here.  This is my
"getaway" space, and I hope for some of you it is too....
a place to see something pretty (hopefully!) and maybe
be a little inspired to take your own "me time".

And so, that's just what I did.....I've been anxiously
awaiting the arrival of my new JustRite goodies....and
last nite they came!!  So I got to playing!  And I have
a little somethin' to enter in JustRite Friday Challenge
#078-Christmas In July:

And the goody goodies use here:
JustRite Vintage Label & Banner Dies (LOVE!)
JustRite Christmas Vintage Labels One (Double LOVE!!)
Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags and Accents
Echo Park Season's Greetings papers
AC Cardstock Primaries
WOW embossing powder (Cable Car Red & Opaque Bright White)
Fancy Pants Tis' the Season pins
Hug Snug Seam Binding
Recollections pearls
MS Fancy Arch Punch

As an FYI....I layered up the stamped images by stamping the
same stamp in versamark:
Layer 1:  white cardstock, red embossing
Layer 2:  red cardstock, white embossing
Layer 3:  green cardstock (EP), red embossing

Each was fussy cut and layered in with foam dots.

So should I make 50 of these for my Christmas Cards this year?

Be inspired to get inky today....K?
