JUGS #50 - A technique challenge that's JustRite!

Welcome friends!

It's Andrea here and I'm so excited to tell you all about this week's challenge. But first, I'm even MORE excited to tell you about our sponsor and their AMAZING giveaway!!!

We are so honored and privileged to have JustRite Stampers® as our sponsor this week!!!! Here's a little more information provided by JustRite...

JustRite Stampers has a huge collection of Christmas and holiday stamp sets from which to choose. Their entire collection can be viewed here. They also offer the full line of Memento full-sized ink pads and now a selection of 96 expertly-chosen Copic Sketch markers which may be purchased as singles, trios or quads! The number one question people have about Copic markers is which colors will work together nicely to give a great shading of color. Now the JustRite design team has done all the work for you -- their quad and trio sets are designed so that you can be assured they will work together to give you a perfect blending group! JustRite has a great 2-page reference guide you can download here. Also, make sure you check out the 12-Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop hosted by JustRite starting this week; the details can be found here. Every Wednesday for the next 12 weeks, the JustRite DT and various designers will showcase the JustRite Christmas Collection. As a part of that event, the JUGS gals will be hopping along with JustRite on November 3!!!! How FUN!!!!

Now I'm sure you read "giveaway" earlier in the post... and, holy moly, do we have one for you!!!! The wonderfully generous folks at JustRite have offered up the following prizes to one lucky, randomly selected participant this week...

So now that I've dangled the carrot, I'm sure you're anxious to know what you've got to do to play along, right? We've reached the technique challenge in the JUGS weekly challenge cycle - the technique this time around is the cracked glass technique. If you're a newbie to this technique, there's a tutorial HERE provided by Splitcoaststampers. Just make a project using this technique for a chance to win!

Hope you'll all be inspired to create something with this technique - as always, we can't wait to see what you come up with!!!!! Of course, if you have JustRite stamps we'd love to see you use them!!!

Let's see what the JUGS gals have cooked up for this challenge, shall we?
First up is the work of our wonderful and talented September featured designer, Lynn Mangan.
