Something Splendid

TGIF everybody!

To be honest, I'm feeling more like, "Whoa! Where did this past week go?" Seriously, I can't believe it's already Friday. No complaints though, considering I'll be enjoying the weekend off. :)

Hopefully y'all aren't getting tired of seeing more Dear Lizzy papers. I'm still working with the Neapolitan scraps that were created from the first couple cards I made using them. I just can't stop using this line! But look at the cuteness of that jar... can you blame me?
My plan was to make a super quick card and I even pulled out one of Christy Croll's darling Pixies from a Stamping Bella set to do just that. With a little bit of altering to make her look like she is peeking around the lid I figured I would be done even quicker. But as I started to put it together, I kept getting hit with different ideas to add. Like the jar... I loved the idea of adding that 'something splendid' label to it but wouldn't it be cool if it looked like it was actually on glass? So I traced the jar outline onto a transparency and cut it out with the addition of some tabs to tuck behind the jar and hold it in place. That added some time but the added dimension looks really cute in person. Then to help the sentiment on the label make a bit more sense, I decided to add an additional tag wrapped around the jar which required more slicing and threading. In the end it was all worth it because this one makes me really happy! :)

Ok, time for me to sign off... catch ya on the flip side!
