Anything but a card

Hello fellow bloggers!
Today I am excited to share with you my latest Design Team creation
for anything but a card where the challenge is
faux stitching or a stitch in time
I used both... or I tried to at least!
Ironically, about 6 years ago when my hubby bought me a sewing machine
I got into sewing, I had tried my hand at a crazy quilt that never really turned out!
So I wanted to give it a try again.... however not with my sewing machine!
but with the top of this container!
Last weekend when my parents were in town we were able to hit up a few
estate sales, and as I have been getting low on my button supply, I was super
excited to get a slew of them for super cheap!
However I then of course needed somewhere to house them.
So I cleaned out a mayonaise jar and embossed some aluminum tape (I promise I'll give the tape a rest soon!!!)
But the embossing folder is one of the only things I own that has a clock on it!
So I inked the aluminum tape with blues and purples, and then ran it thorough
the embossing folder, and then ran my black staz-on over the raised parts,
Finally I added some numbers around the edge of the top
of the jar... Sort of feels a little more clocky (maybe not a word?? he he)
Don't forget that this is the last week to get your creations in to
anything but a card!  Next week I'll be back with another fab creation (I hope!!!)
Have a blessed Sunday!
