Just Rite - Favorite Stamp

I just got my new stamps in the mail from Just Rite.  One of them was their new background stamp called Grandma's Attic.  I love this vintage looking stamp.  I used it to make this little sewing trinket holder for my Mom.  I took an empty plastic Crystal Light contianer, covered it with the stamped image, then added some wooden buttons with jute, flowers, burlap,  a stick pin, a wooden spool with embroidery floss, a sewing needle, some vintge lace, etc.  Then I filled it with some vintage sewing goodies.

The challenge at Just Rite Challenge Blog is to make a 3D gift item or home decor item.  This little container, made from an empty plastic Crystal Light container, is a gift for my Mom.  I've filled it with some vintage sewing trinkets.  I know she will love to display it on her antique sewing machine, just like I have done here in my photo.  This is Just Rite's gorgeous vintage Grandma's Attic background stamp, which I just love.  Here is a link to their challenge:

Since I just got this stamp set, and am so excited about it. . . .I am also entering this project in the challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show.  Their current challenge asks you to use your favourite stamp.  Here is a link to their challenge:

I'm also entering, for a second time this week, the challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ where the challenge is to use something natural.  I would SO LOVE to win their prize this week.  It's a $15 gift certificate to Our Daily Bread stamps, and I've had my eye on their new seed packet stamp set, but can't quite afford it right now.  Here is a link to their awesome challenge:

I also LOVE Our Daily Bread Stamps, and want so badly to win their challenge so that I can get a set from them, so I entered their awesome challenge in hopes of winning a $15 ODB gift certificate.  Here is a link to their challenge:

I'm so grateful for your visits and comments.  I'm still a little discouraged that it's so difficult for me to get around, but I'm still not quite three weeks post-op.  It's all a slow process.  I hope you're all having a great week.

Blessings,
Karen
