Candy jar...

Yup.. I've managed to do another little scrappy thingy (in between all other stuff I had to do this week.. hehe..).. My grandma in France is having her 90th birthday next week.. unfortunately we'll not be able to celebrate it together with her.. but my parents will visit her for a week.. soooo.. since I never know what to buy for my sweet little granny, I decided to fill a biiiiig jar with hard candies.. something she totally adores!!

Of course I couldn't just give her the plain jar.. so I've started decorating the jar a little bit (yup.. I was totally inspired by Melissa for this project... she makes the most amazing things!) and this is what I came up with....

And some details...


OH well it's kinda simple, just a piece of ribbon, a button, a stickpin and a chipboard flower (covered with Doodlebug sugarcoating glitter).. but I like how it turned out.

Oh..and I've been tagged by a bunch of awesome girls.. so sorry that I haven't done the tag yet.. just wanted to say THANK YOU to all of you.. you girls are sooo sweet! And on my turn I really think you ALL deserve this fun award!!!!
I hope you're all having a good week until so far!! Only one workingday to go and it will be weekend again.. just can't wait! I've planned to visit Paper & Pictures this Saturday to pick up the newest Cards Only magazine!! WOOHOOO!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

XOXO
Nancy

What a great gift for your granny. I bet she likes this a lot. And now I see your chipboard flower sprinkled with glitter I know what I forgot to buy last Wednesday. Can't wait to receive Cards Only. I am sure there will be lots of gorgeous cards in the magazine.

Enjoy your weekend!
