It's Those Jars Again ...

Hello!

I'm back home and already missing the charm of Lincoln and seeing my Aunt's sweet face each morning ... I tell you I could quite easily stay there ... I've just got to figure out how to get my craft room down there ...

Before I left I got Featured Artist award at A Mixed Media Challenge  for my altered tin and today I noticed that I got a Top3 Award at Lessology  for my postcard album altered box lid 
Thank You Ladies!! I'm delighted!

I told you that I had been using the lovely digital jars images from Iralamija and here's another card I made a few weeks ago using one of the images - this was for some friends of mine who celebrated their anniversary just over a week ago


I love that peeled paint paper from Fancy Pants ... and you already know how much I love the Ombre effect (Pink Petticoat) on my cards ...


Again I used acetate for the jar ... backed onto some pretty green dot paper ... what you can't really see is that I used my trusty Bostick glue to adhere the acetate to the paper and it leaves a mark like water in the jar ...


I love these shades of green and I know my friends do too so I hope they liked this card

I hope you've had a wonderful week and have a beautiful weekend

Till soon

~ Ros ~

Congrats on being featured, Ros, I really wanted to play there but it just did not happen this week! TJ has been taking up so much time, had to take him to the vets as he was all stuffy and would not eat. So the vet gave him a shot to make him hungry so last night he wanted to eat every few hours, just like a baby! Love your jar and your pretty card! Have a fabulous Friday!
