Friendship Preserved

Pin It Now! Hey crafty friend!  Hand Stamped Sentiments has a challenge featuring Oh So Many of my favorite things this week...light blue, mason jars, truly was fun to make a card this week!  I had a sweet friend in mind when I made this little mason jar full of friendly words from Fabulous Phrases.
 Look's a shaker frame with shrink plastic words and chunky glass glitter!  I did a happy dance when I stamped the shrinky dink paper, cut it into banner strips, and hit it with my heat embossing gun, and they turned into these adorable tiny charms!
I piled them into a 1-3/8" round shaker frame, tinted the "jar" blue with Baja Breeze and an aqua painter, and tied a nice crisp bow on the mouth of the jar.

I added lots of country style pretties to the card, too...doily, linen thread, and a little "Thank You" tag in pewter with heart shaped bitty button (hard to see).  Embossed the Whisper White layer with Square Lattice, and finally added a little ribbon tag on the side of the banner.
What do you see in this challenge picture?  I took it quite literally!  Come join the fun at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week and share your project with us!
