Hugs to YOU! JustRite is Hoppin' with Stamper's Dream Today!

Welcome! We begin the week with a BLOG HOP featuring designers from the JustRite Stampers Design Team and The Stamper's Dream Team! For today's creation, I chose to place my greeting in a frame! This is a gift for a dear friend who is battling cancer. She has received so many cards, which is a blessing, but this time I thought I would place my stamping in a frame so it's within sight for her see! I used JustRite Stampers Hugs To You utilizing the Hugs to You center and border as pictured. You can easily stamp the border and leave as is, but I chose to color it matching my friends decor plus I felt like coloring! Love the look either way, both are beautiful! Hugs to You is a JustRite Original Set with 4 Designer Centers and 4 Borders and fits 2-1/4" x 3-1/16" Stamper. I used my Copic marker to color the center Prima Rose to match my colored image in the frame! Worked wonderfully! I also cut my leaf trim and glued stems together to get a few leaves closer together! If you are looking for a great leaf trim, this is it! The frame measures approximately 4 1/2" x 3 1/4" with a 4 1/8' x 3 1/8" oval opening. Small enough in size to place about anywhere! I found the frame at Michaels in one of those bargain bin aisles!
Thank YOU for stopping by! I'll see you tomorrow with those packaged headbands (finally)! I got sidetracked creating matching bibs! But both are done and packaged now! Can't wait for you to see! Take Good Care and Hugs to YOU my friends!
Enjoy Hoppin' today! I know you'll be seriously inspired! There are mystery blog candy prizes along the way! Be sure to comment on all blogs, that increases your chance to win! Good Luck!
