The Jars of Joy Challenge

When I saw The Jars of Joy Challenge over Moxie Fab World, I knew I had to get my jar stamp  Picnic out to play. This is my 2nd entry. Here is the first one, in case you miss seeing it. I used the same jar stamp to create a total different look.
I was particularly intrigued by this lovely and soft image
 

The patterns on the jars look so beautiful and evoke a sense of simple homespun comfort. How do you get that look instantly? Paper-piecing!  
There is No Place Like Home
I found the sentiment from Right At Home (Hero Arts) to be perfect for this card. The pattern paper is from Basic Greys' Picadilly. Thanks so much for stopping by!

PS: I really to want to thank you for taking the time to comment in my blog. I felt so honored and appreciated that you care to leave me a lovely comment time after time. They make me smile :)
