UR Beyond Perfection Gift Set

Hello Friends!! Well, today was a good day for crafting! I love good crafting days! Do you see the jar? Well, it's an artichoke jar that I saved. It was sitting in my garage in a container. I wanted to alter a candle but I couldn't find the container that stored my candles. As I was going through containers, I found the jar. Isn't it a pretty shaped jar?

It's funny because there was a time when I would save jars or tin cans just for the purpose of altering them but I saved so many of them and I did not create anything with them so I threw them out. I'm glad I saved the artichoke jar!!

I decided to create a scrappy card today! I love scrappy cards because it's a great way to use up left over scrap pieces. I have a lot alpha chipboards that don't match because I've already used up some of the alphabets so I can't form complete words. I'm glad I found the U and the R. . .it worked out perfectly to complete the sentiment on this card.

Card Details:

Paper: K&CO designer paper, SU Cool Caribbean
Ink: Tim Holtz distressing ink, Scribbles Iridescent Paint
Accessories: K&CO Alpha Chipboards, Martha Stewart Corner Punch, Nestabilities, Lace, trimmings, metal embellishment, Marvy butterfly punch, Making Memories Definitions Sticker

Here is the matching jar created using an artichoke jar. I may just buy more marinated artichokes just for the jar! LOL! All I did basically was adhere the lace and trimming around the jar and stuck the prima flower and butterflies over the lace. I covered the top of the cover with designer paper and adhered the ribbon to side of the cover. Pretty simple!!

I just posted a "fitness challenge" on my fitness blog. Stop by "Fitness Towards Healthiness" to check out the challenge. Come on, let's all get healthy this year! I would love if you would play along!!

I've been in such a mojo slump the past month, I'm just trying to get some of my mojo back. Honestly, everything I do. . .crafting, blogging, taking photos, chores, exercising and even just talking have to come from a positive place or I have difficulties getting anything done. Are you that way? Well, I'm doing a bit of catching up and I think my mojo is slowly returning. It's a new month and I'm feeling enthusiastic and optimistic. Yay!!!

Anyway, hope you all have a beautiful Monday!!!

LOVE the vintage/scrappy look, Maria! Awesome! I admire these sorts of cards but struggle to do them...think maybe I need to CASE you ;)
Oh hun...I get like that in mojo slumps too...usually when I'm under pressure to get things done. Almost always it is my own fault, waiting til the last minute. Or in this month's case, being away at CHA and needing to get stuff done since my return. I know I'll get over this hurdle soon. So will you ;) Stay positive!
