A sweet project I made for a friend for Valentine's Day!

Hi Again!

Just a quick post here this evening.  I decorated this jar for a friend and filled it with gems.  She is a beginner at making cards and wanted to know where to buy gems.  So, I bought lots of gems and filled this jar to give to her.  The jar is actually a candle jar that I bought at Michael's.  But, I thought what a pretty jar, and it will do just fine for my project.  Until next time, take care and have a wonderful week, hugs!!:-))
