Friendship Jar - Holiday Edition



Sounds like we may get a snowflake or two tonight in the Ohio Valley. It will be mixed with rain but I guess this will mark the unofficial start of winter. So with that in mind, I decided to pull out a holiday theme. The image I used today is from Papertrey Ink. The main design is known as a Friendship Jar. With each holiday/season you can purchase images to stamp inside the jar. A while back I posted an image with candy corns and then another with leaves and acorns inside the jar. This set has peppermints, sugar cookies, snowflakes and even stamps that can convert the jar to a mug brimming with hot chocolate. Cool, huh? Well, maybe hot... tee hee...

To complete this image I had to pull out some tartan (this designer paper is from SEI) plus a myriad of card stock. I stamped the lid image on the tartan and after cutting it out paper pieced it onto the image. The third layer of card stock is actually a metallic paper (silver to be exact). The silver, red and black combo really stand out. I can't wait to give this card away!

Hope you are having a wonderful week. Please watch my blog over the coming week or so as I have some fun things going on! I can't wait to see you! Blessings!
