My plan is to give hubby a jar with some choices on how to spend time together!
Theses are some of the suggestions (a few of the others may have a bit too much information!!)
I had made master boards to cut up…..
….these were then rolled up and dropped into an old coffee jar with a few handmade flowers in blues and pinks(when it starts to get empty the flowers will fill the gaps!)
I then set to - with the help of some inspiration on some other blog challenges that I especially like - and came up with this
I wrapped lace and some coloured linen stamped with a flower stamp around the middle of the jar.
The little metal word plaque came from an old handbag that I bought on a trip to France years ago - I rubbed Fresco Snowflake over it to pick out "je t'adore" (you see what a problem I have with not parting with stuff)
The ribbon is the last of some lovely crinkly ribbon and I can't remember where to go for more!!!
This is the other side
The flower image I used for the linen was stamped on to one of these
Coasters found in the after Christmas sale at Sainsbury's. There are several layers and the top layer was stroked over with a distress tool and stormy sky to show the leaves.
I mounted it on a die bought in a sale (Spellbinders I think)
The flowers are some I've had for ages and I used a Creative Expressions metal leaf rubbed over with Snowflake!
I stamped the TH clear heart stamp twice and cut it out with different size borders then mounted pink(Spun Sugar) on blue(Stormy Sky)
The top of the jar was painted with PA Fresco Snowflake paint a flower diecut stuck on top to make leaves! The flowers were going to be paper ones but just before bedtime last night I saw Julie Lavalette's post showing how to make some fabulous flowers using all different sorts of materials - so this morning I made two flowers from some old blouses that I had rescued from the charity bag and have been waiting for me to do something with for…..ages! The heart centres are some nail art from Poundland! All the flowers - on the lid and on the jar had a dry brush over with Snowflake.
Finally, a bracelet from a pound set from a Primark sale(I used to use them with a gift tag on gift bags)around the lid and some tissue tape around the top of the jar.
"Let's spend some time together" were computer generated and stuck not twine to hang around the jar.
The only thing now is - we are going away and it's too big to hide (hanging my head - as I just leave out the things I need and hubby packs them)I may give it to hubby before we go away. I'll be taking a card in my handbag.
I'm entering in the following
Thanks for looking, Chrisx
