The story:
This one doesn't have much of a story. I have been wanting to make something with the MMSC sketch, but just didn't get to it last week. When I saw the colors for the CDS Weekend Challenge I thought about using The Grind set, but then I saw this little stamp & thought, "Pickles---GREEN! YES!" I put Paper Glaze on the pickles to look like glass jars (I added a flash picture here so you could see the glaze on the jars). Then I put a second coat on & it dried foggy. I had stamped a 2nd set of pickles to use as a base, and I was going to pop-up the other ones on top. So, I put Paper Glaze on the 2nd set, and used it as my top set! LOL!

Hope you're not in a pickle this week!

Hi Lori, I just got a tickle out of your image with that cute sentiment. How fun is that!! Very pretty card with lots of delightful eye candy. You did a fantastic job. Thanks for playing along with us at MMSC this week. Please check Priscilla's blog for all the fun happenings there in the next month.
