JustRite Friday Challenges are BACK!

Good Friday Morning! JustRite is beginning Friday Challenges again! Challenges will occur every second and fourth Friday of the month. Hooray!
Today's Theme: I created a round card showcasing one of the adorable Santa images from Diane Arthur's Blizzard Bunch Stamp Set! I just love her images! The purple is a bit unusual for Christmas and definitely out of my comfort zone, but I like it! The "Just for You" sentiment image is a stamp from JustRite's Charming Christmas set! It is cut out using the custom Spellbinders Charm dies matching this set! The entire JustRite's Blizzard Bunch Stamps by Diane Arthur's reveals her other images in the set! Aren't they just adorable? The snowmen can be utilized well into the new year throughout the winter season! Gotta love that!

Thank you for stopping by today! I want to thank each and every one that has inquired my whereabouts the past few weeks! It's heartwarming to hear your thoughts and concerns! I had to take a break and help out caring for one of our granddaughters, which was such a blessing! Add to that, my hubby has been undergoing more tests hoping to get some answers! Today he's doing better and for that we are grateful! Quoting the "Living one day at a time" is very different than learning to live it!!! So, that's where I've been! Here, just not in the studio! You can imagine how good its felt the past couple days to get my fingers inky! LOL Take good care friends!

I just never would have thought that this traditional red Santa would look so pretty on this beautiful purple card, but it does. Thanks for the update on the return of Friday Challenges.
