I'm crafty and you know it!

Wow! Is Easter sneaking up on me. New job is not allowing much crafting time with weekend seminars and varied hours I am still trying to balance. BUT I have some of my favorite Blogs and if they have a challenge...I will try to join in the fun!

Over at MyCreativeTime it is the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge and I have chosen to go on the diagonal and use A Die Cut, Ribbon and Faux Stitching.

I used Stitched Chunky Jar Dies, Chunky Jar Accessories and Hello Spring. I cut the eggs out of Shrink Material  and stamped them. The jar is 3 ply! 2 layers of clear acetate and then 1 layer of patterned paper. I just wasn't getting the effect I wanted using just the clear jar. For the jar lid and handle, I adhered tin foil to a cereal box. Nice shiny real affect.

I am glad I made time for this little craft. I have lots to do before Sunday and I hope to get more crafting completed. In my head I originally saw Easter Grass in the jar with the eggs. Next time!

The utensils, the cupcakes, the flower pots, everything. This project is also so super cute. I love it. Hopefully things at your new job will settle down soon and you'll have more time for your creations - although you're still getting more done than I am. LOL.
