Cute Card Thursday -Material Girl!


Over on Cute Card Thursday this week the theme is Material Girl!
Add some fabric, lace, ribbon to your project!
I couldn't think of making a card all I could think about was decorating a jam jar, especially after I had just made up a batch of homemade strawberry jam!
I like to make something homemade to give to neighbours at Christmas (of course I will make up a fresh batch in December, won't give them this one)

I quickly nipped to Wal-Mart to get some of this pretty fabric and pear trim oh and pinking shears that I have wanted forever but never really needed until now!
I made it in minutes, sure you can tell!  Essential if you want to make up a whole batch of them to give away!


the homemade jam, you wouldn't believe the sweet, fruity aroma that comes from this pan as they are 
cooking!


the finished jam!
Our sponsor this week over on CCT is
worth checking out the link, she has super cute images over there!
Hope you manage to pop over to see the rest of the DT's creations,  fabulous ideas for using fabric!
Have a great day and thanks for dropping by!

This looks fab and I think we must be missing out in the uk as our walmart is asda walmart and doesn't sell fun art stuff or fabric just food clothes and houseware for chores. I think you can order furniture but definitely not arts ccrafts and fabrics and we definitly need a michaels , could you suggest they come set up on in sheffield there is a retail park not far from where I live which would be ideal, they sound like they have great stuff.
