Biscuit jar

Hi there and welcome to my blog rambles

Glad to say that after yesterday I am glad that Amazon listen to their customers 
in the end and all is sorted. 

The supplier has lost my custom but I can live with that as, as I said yesterday, there is 
plenty of fish in the sea. 

So it is biscuits today - do you find that when you are stressed - you eat. I have to say
chocolate biscuits are my down fall. 

So here is my card today. 

Hope it meets with the theme over at 

I started off with a piece of white card stock

Using Hunkydory Love to Stamp 

Stamped the jar and biscuits in the jar, using masks to make the biscuits "go behind"
Coloured in with watercolour pencils. 

Added hearts around the edges and used a smoothie with orange ink still on 
(from doing the elephants the other day) to colour in the edges. 

I did color lightly with gray and blue the jar to try to make it look like 

Stamped the sentiment - and yes I think Happiness is but a biscuit away 

Have a good day and I look forward to hearing from you again 

Pleased to say that I made the TOP 3 (5) with my ribbon flower 
over at 

Bye for now

  1. Yourj glass jar of biscuits look so realistic. Lovely colouring. I don't have any vegetables growing but all my borders are now nicely turned over and the front grass has had it's first haircut. Sitting out in the garden with a coffee in the sunshine. Beautiful. Hugs Mrs A.

  2. Looks like sweet treas to me Pen and it's such a fun card with bright veery colours and yes stress makes me nibble as well, my downfall is anything Cadbury - I'm a dreadlful example of a diabetic.
