The Tuesday Morning Sketch this week is actually a challenge to make something other than a card. Of course, once I figured out what I was making, I had to make a card to go with it. :) Here it is, Serena's first birthday gift!
Unfortunately, my new phone didn't play well with Blogger so, I'm finishing this post now. Here's the run down on the project. The jar is a pickle jar that I wrapped in My Mind's Eye butterfly patterned paper. I used this week's Frugal Friday tip from Scrap Our Stash to make my own "Thickers" from foam that I've had FOREVER, an alphabet that I bought on clearance, and my favorite Distress Ink pad, Worn Lipstick. This is the first time I have ever used my perfect pearls too, a little interesting but it seemed to really make the card and jar match. I am not going to lie, I really liked this project because I used a hammer, a nail, and a power drill to make the hole in the lid. Too much fun!
For those who asked - I bought some memory glass, a Weathered Wood Distress Ink pad, and a couple of other small things. Unfortunately, I have to drive 80 miles one way to go to the nearest Michaels so, it also meant a trip to Costco, Ross, the mall, and dinner with a friend. It's always fun to go with the hubby! He's a pretty great guy!
