Challenge #55 - Mason Jars

Happy Monday!  Deborah here from ScrappinTheLittleThings and its my turn to host a Challenge here at PGCB. I'm so excited to be sharing a Challenge with you.  As summer approaches, I get anxious to bring out the mason jars for a bit of mason jar madness.  We have several neighbors who have lemon trees which we juice up those aromatic lemons for fresh lemonade.  There is just something about the way lemonade tastes when its homemade and served in a mason jar.

Today’s challenge is Mason Jar Madness.  I saw this photo on the internet probably a year or so ago and just loved the idea of creating a fun summer lighting for our back porch.  

Here’s the photo inspiration (I wish I could remember where this came from!):

And here’s what I created (more information on my blog):

And then I also worked on a Mother’s Day gift.  I embellished a mason jar and stuffed it full of cute ribbons for a new mom in my neighborhood.  

So the challenge is to create something with mason jars.  Our DT created some amazing projects.  Be sure to link up your project and we’ll send out a snazzy prize for you!

Becci created this confetti style mason jar card with sequins, stitching and a clear overlay.

Charity used Stickles for fireflies and an Echo Park title for this card.

Kristy used Crystal Effects to give her jar a little shine.

Michele used masking to create a fun row of mason jars on her card.

Amber made a garden-inspired card for someone special.

The winner of Challenge #54 is:
