In a JAM?

Good evening all!

As I said in my posting last night, I've been on a bit of a roll when it comes to challenges and projects this week.  The project I am sharing tonight was inspired by a few challenges, including Peachy Keen Stamps' Let's Face It Friday - So Punny! and Cricut Cardz Challenge #86 - Tuitti Fruitti

Supplies Used:
Cartridge(s): "Wild Card" (for the base of the card), "Ashlyn's Alphabet" (rectangle background), "From My Kitchen" (jam jar), "Preserves" (strawberries)
Stamp(s): Peachy Keen Stamps' "Everyday Character Faces" (1 1/8" size), Scrappy Moms Stamps'' "A Pinch and a Dash" (sentiment)
Embossing Folder(s):  Japanese Scales (Cuttlebug)
Glitter Glue:  Stickles in "Frosted Lace", "Xmas Red", "Crystal", "Green"
Coloring Utensils: Dark Brown (PM-88) ProMarker, White Sakura Gelly Roll Pen
Stamp Pad in "Olive"
Martha Stewart Scoring Board
Purple Cows Paper Cutter

Challenges entered with this card:
Peachy Keen Stamps' Let's Face It Fridays - So Punny!: 
Puns are fun, and even more perfect when paired with Peachy Keen Faces! This week, create a project using your PKS faces and along with any pun you'd like.
Cricut Cardz Challenge #86 - Tuitti Fruitti: Make a card using fruit, and you may use any cartridges, colors or occasion you'd like.
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #71 - Let's Be Friends: It's Friendship Day! Create a fun project for a friend.
The main inspiration for this card came from the sentiment I used.  Since the theme for PKS' challenge was using a pun, and the Cricut Cardz' challenge was to use fruit in the card, the "In a Jam?" was perfect!  I was able to convey a look of uneasiness and unsureness (is that even a word?) using my awesome PKS "Everyday Character Faces" set (love me some Peachy Keen!), and my application of Stickles was far less heavy-handed than usual ;)  I am also enjoying the new sizing of the cards I am creating - the 4 x 9 is a bit more unique and I'm enjoying the challenges of arranging my cuts and sentiments on the card. 
I hope you enjoyed viewing my project!  Thank you for visiting!

Until next time,
Ashley "Scrappin' Pink Piglet"
