JustRite Monogram Card

It's STILL JustRite Week at Stamper's Dream !

For this card I used the Harmony Classic Oval Ensemble I Stamper and the Trompe Script Font Set .
I used the wooden stamper and border from the Harmony Classic Oval I Ensemble , and the monogram letters are from the Trompe Script font set. I just love the versatility that I can use words from the Oval set, OR use fonts with it if I choose.

I cut the stamped monogram with my oval Nestabilities, then matted. I also cut a rectangle and used it behind the oval to give it a bit more definition.

The scallops were made with a Martha Stewart punch that was a gift from my friend Carol. (Thanks Carol!) The designer paper is Basic Gray Ambrosia . I LOVE that paper!

The pearls are Pewter Pearls by Kaiser Craft. The cardstock is Blush Red Prismatics dark, and Stormy Prismatics medium.

Today, the entire Dream Team is posting with JustRite products! You see, it was originally Laurie's day to post. Soon after we set up the schedule she received the news that her daughter Ali had a brain mass, and they rushed her to Seattle Children's Hospital for further testing. The last communication I had from Laurie the night before they left she was apologizing about not being able to meet her commitment for JustRite week. Now, any of you who know me realize that I don't give a hoot about that when she is facing a crisis of such magnitude.

So...I emailed the Dream Team with two options. I could reschedule everything, or someone could post in Laurie's place. Without hesitation, THE ENTIRE DREAM TEAM stepped up and volunteered to cover for Laurie! I just wanted you all to know what special gals they are. I know I always say that they are the best of the best....but they truly are, in ways that never cease to amaze me. Sometimes to say thanks just doesn't seem enough. But I thank the Dream Team from the bottom of my heart for being the caring and talented ladies they are.

So today is for you Laurie. We love you! And we are still praying for more miracles. :-)

Be sure to see what the rest of the Dream Team has created for you today:







Thanks so much for stopping by. I *think* I will be back tomorrow with something new!
