Harvest ~ ssnotime166 - Well Preserved & Friday Sketcher

Hello, today i would love to invite you to participate in 2 fun challenges.
First off… my submission for the Simply Stamp Ribbon store. This week we are at challenge No #166 - ssnotime166 - Well Preserved!
- Is anyone out there still canning, or freezing or drying your summer harvest?  Or is anyone preparing those previously preserved goodies for Thanksgiving or Christmas gifts?  Today is all about preserving our fruits of the harvest.  Take this food related theme wherever it brings you -- use food type stamps, papers or embellishments on a card, decorate a jar of canned goods, or even wrap and decorate a chocolate bar -- we're easy!  Let's just see some lovely fruits, veggies or any type of edible in today's creations!!!

Remember use ssnotime166 when uploading your project to Splitcoast :-) so we all can find your work.

I used this opportunity to ink up my new Just Rite set “A Day In The Country” and decorated a scented candle jar and created a matching card using the sketch on the Friday Sketcher blog.

Most supplies used to alter any jar like this can be found over at Sharon’s store: Just Rite set (currently there is a sale 25% off selected stamps)
chocolate striped ribbon, Spellbinder pendant, Spellbinder Label Ten, Scor Tape to hold the ribbon secure in place, Bow Easy, everything can be found right here
others: Magnolia Doohickey tag, flowers (Wild Orchid Crafts)

The papers are new Basic Grey “Curio” 6x6 papers, individual paper pads can be found here. I love the homespun feel of the patterns.
Spellbinder Label Ten, Martha Stewart border punch  ~ ribbons are chocolate wrinkle ribbon over some twill ribbon from Simply Ribbon Store
Please email Sharon at to order, including state/zip OR country.

My card was worked using Janneke’s wonderful sketch for this weeks challenge on the Friday Sketcher blog
Coloring of both imges was done with Letraset ProMarkers. The tip of this marker was perfect to color the smaller images in.   Claudia_Rosa_Just Rite_Autumn_Candle_Day in the country
