Friendship Jar

This is my first Friendship jar,  I have wanted this stamp set for over a year and was too cheap to buy it.  I am going to celebrate 30 years of marriage on the 26th, so I decided to buy it as a gift to myself.  I am so glad I did now.  It has so many options.  This is a great stamp set.

This is the Friendship Jar set from Papertrey.  This design is my Michelle Wooderson.  I love the sets.  They all have many different items to place in your jar.  I am looking forward to an entire pantry of Friendship jars.  I did use some of the FY1 Fluorescent on the tips of the flower petals.  I doodles one petal on the floor.  I love to doodle at least one thing on each card.  That way I can be sure no one else has the same card.

Crepe Paper flowers with Tim Holtz distress ink

I have been making Crepe paper flowers all week.  I watched a video on the Martha Stewart site and it was so easy, I could not resist.  I added some Tim Holtz distress ink and some fancy stamen that I purchased at Michaels.  First I used the flower soft wires and crepe paper for the stamen.  I have been trying new color combos.  My fav is the white with Lipstick ink.
