Christmas Just Rite

This card is using some adorable ribbon I discovered last year when I visited Costco- we had our first store open in Melbourne toward the end of last year so hubby and I decided to check it out- wow it's big and so many things- I did half my Christmas shopping in one day there but I fell in love with this ribbon even though I had to buy a whole roll of 50 yards it was only about $10 so I couldn't go past it- I was going to use it last year but I had most of my Christmas things already organized so this year it will feature a lot in decorations,cards and just about everything else.

Isn't this gold and maroon ribbon gorgeous the maroon is actually flock its just beautiful IRL. it sort of has a shimmer to the gold too which is not showing in the pictures.

This card is for the JUGS sketch A Just Rite Sketch Day! 40 using Just Rite stamps on the inside and the front -I used a bits and pieces from my stash I am slowly using all my little bits but they don't seem to get any less in volume-is that because I keep getting more off cuts from friends do you think.  Hope you like it.

This may be my last post for a while as I start work again on Monday-in Australia school goes back Monday from the mid year holidays and I am working all day for the next four weeks and with everything else I do blog entries have become lower on the priority list unfortunately. Thank you to all who visit and I hope you will call back occasionally to visit and leave a comment. I also have a couple of cards featured on Erin's blog- Inky Smiles for her Scrap My Scraps Challenge III Reveal- Kathy Smullen I thought this would be great fun to participate in and what a ball I had Erin is such great fun to work with and very patient for a novice blogger like me- Thanks for the chance Erin I had a blast. Although I was getting a bit concerned because my envelope hadn't arrived and the deadline was the 25th June and I only got my stuff the week before- It seemed like it took forever to arrive but I think I did ok- let me know what you think by visiting Erin's blog-just click on the link above -hopefully it should take you to her blog.
