*********************RAK JustRite 051


Before my week turned topsy turvey (please say a prayer for my gravely ill grandaughter who has been in ICU for a week) I thought of all the kindnesses received from friends and family.  Besides making cards, I enjoy creating a floral landscape in my front yard.  A neighbor often provides me cuttings from her garden.  With this Just Rite challenge - an act of kindness/thank you I thought to create a "May Basket" to leave on her door.  I created the basket using a double folded flower cutout that I surrounded with an eyelet ruffle. I covered the base with a floral patterened paper and outlined it with a bit of May Arts gold cord.  A dull red scalloped circle was placed in the center and (look closely) embellished with "stitching".  I used blue Imaginisce and Prima flowers and 2 blue rhinestone swirls to create my garden.  Tucked into my basket is a packet of Morning Glory seeds (we enjoy sharing a cup of coffee in the morning sometimes) and a card  which thanks her for her friendship.  The card uses May Arts ribbon, Dew Drops, paper rose, and Just Rite stamps (than you and flower on patterned paper).  A hanging tag complete this RAK using Just Rite stamps (border and sentiment), Tim Holtz acyrlic tag, Copic Markers and May Arts ribbon.
 For this project, I used Just Rite Stamps from:  You Inspire Me and Plant a Little Love Set.
 May you also reap the harvest from seeds of kindness!...
