JustRite Mega March Blog Hop - Day 1



Welcome to the first day of JustRite's 3-Day Mega March Blog Hop! If you haven't already begun at the JustRite blog, then be sure to go there first so that you don't miss a single thing! If you arrived here by way of Kellie Fortin, you're right on track. When you're finished here, you'll hop over to the amazing Jerri Jimenez. (I'll have the full list of blog hop participants at the very end, too.)

Today, I'm sharing a card using Joyful Hearts, a collection of six gorgeous sentiments and six borders designed to fit the small oval stamper.



The sentiment and border are stamped on Ivory Simply Smooth Prismatics using Versafine Onyx Black, then die-cut with Spellbinders oval Nestabilities. The designer papers are from the gorgeous new Pink Paislee Bayberry Cottage collection. The black patterns are from the 6x6 paper pad and the shapely green pieces are from the coordinating Flip Notes Journal Pad (these two pieces are one note cut in half). I embellished with some ribbon, punched borders, Kaiser Craft black self-adhesive pearls, and Kaiser clear/silver rhinestones.

24 designers, FIVE shopping sprees each day. No one knows where the prizes will be! Each day of the hop, JustRite will have five Mystery Blog Candy Prizes hidden along the hop with a total retail value of $600. JustRite will randomly select five mystery blogs each day of the hop and randomly allocate each of the shopping sprees. For your chance to win, simply leave a little love (a comment) on each designer’s blog including the JustRite blog. The more designers you leave comments with, the better your chances of winning. Each day’s comments will remain open for three days. A winner from each of the mystery blogs’ comments will be randomly chosen using Random.org. Consult the listing of designers at the JustRite blog each day (each day’s designers will be different) and start out on your way! Beginning Friday, March 26, summaries of all the winners will be posted on the JustRite blog. Good luck to everyone and enjoy all the JustRite eye candy along the hop!

Today during the JustRite Mega March Blog Hop (Day One) JustRite and its sponsors will be giving away the following five prizes:

· $200 JustRite Shopping Spree

· $100 Spellbinders Shopping Spree

· $100 Stampers Dream Shopping Spree, and

· Two additional $100 JustRite Shopping Sprees!



Blog comments for Day One will be open until Thursday at 6pm EST. On Friday, JustRite will announce on their blog which five blogs have the mystery candy for Day One. You will need to go to the JustRite blog to determine where you need to go to find out if you are one of the five lucky winners.
