Not a card

Today I wanted to show you a something special that I created.....
It's a sweet dreams jar...... I grew up with a fairy bell that every night my grandad would ring with us - this would keep the nightmares away and let us have good dreams.
I have so many wonderful memories of my grandad, he was such a wonderful man. He inspired this project.




I have been busy with card making and some other bits too - lots to show you when I can.
I hope you like my jar.....
Enjoy the sunshine x
Happy crafting

  17. Morning Nikki, this is such a gorgeous and cute make. My youngest (and probably eldest!) daughter would love this jar. A fabulous idea and decorated 'gorjussly' (?!) My Grandad was super special to me too... amazing man and he is sorely missed and the sentiment behind this is just lovely. Heather x
