Challenge #245 J is for Jessi

 We are baaaaaaack  with a new challenge J is for Jessi 

I know a lot of our followers will remember Jessi se was a wonderful crafter, so talented and taken way too soon. She was on the design teams of many challenges I loved when it was her turn for the sketch at Tuesday morning sketches, and loved buttons, many of her image circles were edged in brightly coloured buttons, she was also really good at quilling and many of her cards have beautifully quilled designs on them, she could also "snark" with the best of them. My way of remembering Jessi is to use one of the crocheted circles that she made, and an image I'm sure she would have put googlie eyes on. (I coludn't find mine)


I used a Stampendous Mini Clear stamp did minimal colouring, layered it on green ten on the Jessi crocheted mat  other than the die cut sentiment I left off any embellishments as I wanted the mat to be the focal point.

Leftover scraps and a sentiment finished the inside.

I must admit I have hoarded the crocheted mats, I only used them for special cards. 

Since this is a special edition of the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers to honour Jessi we will be back January 6th with a new MONTHLY challenge with new Queen and Princess badges. 

I am adding this to:

Jingle Belles Rock ~~ Wrapping up 2023

Christmas Kickstart ~~ If it's Christmassy link it up

Now head over to the MAIN BLOG and get more information on the challenge and see what the rest of the design team has made in Jessi's honour.

I believe I still have one those crocheted mats hoarded away somewhere ... I'll need to go find it. Love your fabulous tribute card.

Oh wow!!! You have some of her doilies! That's what inspired me to make the lacey cardstock frame on my card. This is just beautiful!

Like you, I am hoarding the crocheted circles that Jessi gifted me. I find it incredibly hard to use them. This is such a sweet card, Barbara!
