Oh My Gosh ...

... I just couldn't help myself!!!
Melanie over at *Wink *Wink Ink has certainly been busy creating new digi images for you all!!  She just shared this one with us, and I just could not wait to play with it!  REMEMBER ... this is not only a B/W image for you to color on your own ... but there is also a precolored image when you purchase any of Melanie's stamp sets.  That is what I have used on this card!   This set also comes with various sentiments.  Here the full size card using this new "In A Jam" digi:

 IS THIS CUTE OR WHAT!!!  After printing and cutting out the sentiment, I gave it a "bend" before attaching it to the card front with purple brads.  I just today picked up with Recollections designer paper at Michaels ... perfect!!  And as you can see best in the "snippet" ... I have added Crystal Effects to give the jar a "real" appearance!    

Now, here is a card I colored myself (now you know why I LOVE these precolored digis so much!!).  The designer paper is Stemma, the circles were die cut using Nestabilities and the flowers are Prima ... so easy, peasy fun creations!!!  Although, I do think I'll go back and add Crystal Effects to this card as well ... just makes it POP!!

Don't we all feel like this little guy from time to time!!  LOL!!  What great fun to have a creation like this to send to that "special" person who has at some point ... Helped You Out Of A Jam!!!  Sure to bring an instant smile to their face!!

Well ... that's all for me today!!  I'm trying to get creative for my grand-daughter's 18th birthday coming up this weekend ... but I seem to be stalling out ... NOT GOOD!!!  Best get back to it!!  

Please stop back tomorrow when I will have another fun RAISE THE BAR challenge creation to share with you!!  Thanks for stopping by!!

Adorable! It reminds me of Anne of Green Gables, when the teacher comes to tea and Anne finds a mouse in the cream or butter, I think.
