Guest Designer - Tanya from Nonna's Craft Corner!!

Hello everyone!  This is Tanya from Nonna's Craft Corner and I am so excited to be a Guest Designer here at My Craft Spot today.  Before I share my project with you, I would like to stay a quick Thank You to Kimberly for asking me over to play! I have long admired Kimberly's work and her beautiful designs and I'm very happy to be here today.

So, let's get on with my project! I decided to use Kimberly's sweet "Feel Better Soon" stamp set for this sweet card and candy jar.....

When I first saw the "Chocolate Prescription" stamp, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  I headed to one of our craft stores and found this jar that reminds me of the old-fashioned jars you used to see in a doctor's office.

I used a pretty layered label I found in the Silhouette Online store to stamp this fun sentiment onto.  After inking up the edges with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink, I glued it onto the jar.  I topped off the jar with a big bow made from some gorgeous Milk Chocolate Crinkle Ribbon also available from Kimberly.  And, for the final touch, I filled the jar with some yummy chocolate covered almonds.

I used some pretty pink and brown prints for this patchwork card.  I cut each square into 1 and 1/2 by 1 and 1/2 inch squares and inked up the edges before adhering them to a dark brown mat. This was adhered to an ivory 5 X 5 inch card base.

The flower on my card is from the Silhouette Online Store. I inked up the edges with my Vintage Sepia ink and added a dark brown brad to the center.

I used another sentiment from the "Feel Better Soon" stamp set for the front of my card.  I stamped the sentiment onto a hand cut banner in the same ivory cardstock as my card base.  Next, I covered the banner with Glossy Accents and sprinkled on some coarse, crystal glitter.

Now, If I can just keep my hands off of those chocolate covered almonds, I will have the perfect little gift set on hand the next time someone I love is not feeling so well!

Thanks so much for stopping by today - I hope you have enjoyed my project.  Before I go, I would just like to say a big Thank You once again to Kimberly!  Thanks for having me over, I've really enjoyed myself!
