The Perfectly Preserved set comes with flowers and gorgeous, stylised fruit to put in the jar but I've been thinking of all the other things you can put in it... hearts, leaves, stars, snowflakes, sweets etc So how about pens! These are cut from one of the papers in the Attic Boutique range, sadly now retired, and I used another of the papers for the backdrop. I ran it through the Big Shot with the stripes embossing folder and gave it a sponge-over with Early Espresso ink.
The jar was stamped on acetate using white Stazon before cutting out (there are framelits to make this job easy!) and I cut a slot in the top of the jar with a craft knife to slide the pens into. The jar is attached to the card with glue dots cunningly concealed under the pens and the sentiment strip!

I've just been talking to my eldest son about his English class. He'd been given An Inspector Calls and The Crucible to read over the holidays and it turns out that he'll be studying An Inspector Calls. He told me he was glad as he'd found The Crucible 'weird'. "I expect it made you think though," I suggested. He looked at me as if I'd run mad. "No!" he said indignantly. This the boy who once memorably said to me: "You're only saying that to make me think - but I'm not stupid!" And of course he's not. I expect he's just conserving energy.
It's Three Minute Thursday here tomorrow and I've got a fast card using the new In-Colours to show you. Hope to see you then,
