Before we get started with today's JustRite Friday Challenge, we wanted to formally introduce another new JustRite Original Nested stamp set to you, JB-09805 Sympathy Nested Sentiments & Verse:
We originally had this set scheduled to introduce last week, but the blog got a little backlogged with other commitments, so we delayed it to this week. Then, with the news of the passing of Becca's husband (please see the post a few below this one) over the weekend, we decided to once again put the release on hold. While making sympathy cards is something we all hope to avoid, there are times we all need them. So we tried to put together a versatile set that would convey just the right thoughts, when you need them most. We hope you'll find it useful. Remember, they will fit in any of our decorative Nested Frames, too.
Today's JustRite Friday Challenge #043 to make a card showing your support -- either Sympathy or Friendship -- had also been planned for the past several months. Again, these are cards that we might not normally make up in advance, but are always good to have on hand, so we hope this challenge helps you do that!
If you don't have any of our Sympathy or Friendship sets, or Font to make either of these kinds of cards, you may use any of our images (flowers, perhaps?) that might convey those thoughts. You'll also find some sentiments that would work great in these sets:
All Occasion Nested Sentiments - "Just Because", "Just for You"
Cherish The Memories Nested Sentiments - "Friends"
Tiny Words - "Have Faith", "Sending Hugs"
Romantic Sentiments - Some of these sentiments can work well for friendship, too!
Birthday Centers - "Just For You", "For Someone So Special", "Today I Celebrate You"
Seeds of Kindness - "You Make Me Smile"
Just A Note or Cardmaking Kit - "Thinking of You", "Just Because"
Just A Little Caffeine - "Caffeine & Friends, the Perfect Blend"
Applique - "Stitched With Love"
Hope - All sentiments could work well for sympathy
Kaleidoscope - "Love, Faith, Family & Friends", "Prayers Going Up, Blessings Coming Down"
Stitched With Love - "I love being your friend because..."

These JustRite design team members have challenge samples to share with you today. Please be sure to click on their highlighed/hyperlinked names to be taken to the full details of their cards. They've all used our new Sympathy Nested Sentiments set (except where noted) and don't forget about our Friendship Nested Sentiment set we debuted on October 26 -- you can find more samples with that set by visiting this blog post!
You will need to use JustRite products for your project and upload it to an online blog, gallery or photo hosting website. You may make and enter as many different projects as you'd like for our challenges. (Please see our blog post HERE for important information about our gallery on Flickr, how to upload to it, and another opportunity to win some JustRite products!).
You will then need to link to your project back here on our blog post, using the linking system on this challenge post. Please make certain your link is directly to your project, not just your general blog home page or overall photo gallery, so we can find it easily. (Links that are spam, commercial in content, or are not linked properly/directly to your project will be deleted). If you choose to upload your project to www.Splitcoaststampers.com OR our Flickr gallery, please use the weekly challenge code (example: JRC_043 <== that's an underscore between the letters and numbers) in the keyword section of the Splitcoast project upload page or the tag section of the Flickr gallery.
You will have until next Thursday, November 11 at 9am Central to make your project and enter a link to it below. Then the winners will be chosen and announced a little later that day here on the JustRite Inspiration Blog. Please allow up to 4 weeks for delivery of your prizes. By entering our challenges, you grant JustRite Stampers permission to use your artwork here on our blog as well as our company website gallery (with designer credit given and your blog post or gallery linked) or any possible advertising.
We can't wait to see your Sympathy & Friendship cards! We hope you'll check back next week, when we'll be releasing EIGHT (8) new Cling stamp sets ... you just might be able to see a sneak peek of them HERE! :)
