Fairy Jars

Happy Monday!  It's going to be an exciting week with everyone showing off new CHA products.  No more peeks.. we get to SEE the goodness!  Each day next (July 11-15) week they will be showing 2 of the new Clear Art Stamp Sets and doing a giveaway on the Heartwarming Vintage blog, so be sure to pop over and check them all out!
 I used the new "Born to fly" stamp set from Crafty Secrets to create these little Fairy Jars.  ( You'll be able to see all the stamp sets in full on the Heartwarming Vintage blog this week).


You know I'm not a big "colorer" but I did do some coloring using watercolor pencils.   I stamped all of my images first on the tan paper, then went back and stamped them again on patterned paper to add colored dresses.. wings...ect...

All the patterned papers I used were from the new "Creating with Vintage Patterns CD".

Isn't that banner so fun?  I love that the stamp itself is empty, so that you can change out that words, or add print of your own.

and...     these cute tickets that can be used separately, or used for a stage.. when you add the little legs.

I LOVE this little girl so much!!  She is just so sweet.  I stamped the word "wishes" to have her hold it, but there are a number of different words to choose from .
  For these jars I cut the fairies out, but you certainly don't have to do all that cutting.  
I'll be showing you other ways you can use these little cuties in upcoming posts.  I'm pretty excited about this set! (imagine that) lol
This is just one of the darling new stamp sets Crafty Secrets is releasing.  Remember you can see them all on the Heartwarming Vintage blog this week!

********************************************************************
I hope all of you had a fantastic weekend.  My sis and brother-in-law were hear on Saturday for a visit. They took Mom to have her church photo taken and then out and about for the day.  I spent the most of the weekend in my room working on projects. ( Oh.. poor me having to stay in from the heat and play with gorgeous new products all day right??) 


My sis brought these yummy angel food cakes with fresh strawberries, and they were DELICIOUS!!


Tomorrow we are praying that the first of the shots mom will receive will give her relief from the pain in her leg.   Thank you all for you concern and well wishes for her.


I  hope you all have a great week!!

Vicki, my prayers and hopes are with you and your mom. I had a shot several weeks ago. It seems to help some. My first one was amazing! It helped for a year. Um, when you get a minute, just send me that angel food cake which just happens to go so nicely with your little angel bottles! LOL Hope all is well....
