JustRite Friday Challenges are BACK!!!

Good morning everyone.  The new year is here and so are the JustRite Friday Challenges.  Yeah!!!  The challenge today is to create something by scoring it.  This challenge is sponsored by Scor-Pal.  Now before I get to my project I need to tell you about my Scor-Pal story.  When I first heard about Scor-Pal a few years ago I knew that I HAD TO HAVE ONE!!  It was one of those things that you need to have it no matter what.  Well I live in a small town and right around this time all of my local scrapbooking stores were closing.  Every year I also attend the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Manchester, NH with my sister in law.  We thought for sure we could get one of these there but apparently everyone else wanted one too.  We went to every scrapbook store within a 50 mile radius of Manchester - nothing!!  We were really getting upset that we were going to be going home without our Scor-Pal.  Then we ran into a friend of ours at the convention and she had just gotten a Scor-Pal.  When we asked where she got it, she said that there was a tiny scrapbook store less than a mile from the convention center!!  We immediately got into my car and sped to the store.  We got the last 2!!!  Our trip was now complete - we got what we really wanted.  And I have used my Scor-Pal ever since - I LOVE IT!!!

Sorry to be so long winded but I felt the need to let everyone know how much I really like my Scor-Pal.

Okay - now my project

I decided to make a Candy Bar card - I found the instructions on the Scor-Pal website here.  They have a lot of very cool project ideas.  Be sure to go check it out.

I am using several of the newly released JustRite stamp sets.  The 2 panels on the outside and the large panel in the middle are all from the "Fancy Frames - Cling" set, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and Memento Lady Bug and diecut with the new JustRite Custom Nested Frame Dies.  The sentiment is from the "Happy Everything Mini Tag Kit", stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and diecut with Spellbinders Classic Oval.  I used a R27 Copic marker to color the red areas.

Here is a look at the inside of my card:

The top photo shows the inside view of the candy bar prior to covering it.  The sentiment is from the JustRite "Ellie Time - Cling" set, stamped with Memento Lady Bug, and diecut with the JustRite Custom Nested Frame Dies.  This die set is awesome because they thought of everything - including making a mat die to go beneath the decorative ends.  I diecut these in red to help pop it off the black cardstock.

The photo below shows what it looks like after I covered the candy bar.

And here are the complete sets that I used to create my project:

Some of my fellow JustRite designers are also playing along today.  Be sure to check out their awesome Scor-Pal projects.

Thanks for stopping in for a visit today.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
