Happy Thursday everyone!! Today is another Divine Diva Challenge and Lori sent an inspiration that is just in time for a Valentine's Day creation! How fun!!

Although the picture is small, I hope you are able to see some of the jar cover patterns, I was inspired by the colors, patterns and the contents of the jar.

I decided to make a calendar easel card for the concept on time since their are watches in a few of the jars. The polka dotted cover on one of the jars and all the pink also inspired me.
The sentiment was typed on my computer and has always held special meaning for me. The dp is from SU's retired Sweet Always. The stamps used are Inspired by Nature and Sense of Time, also retired from SU. The calendar was sent to me in a RAK from my dear blogging friend Shirley N . Thanks Shirley!!!

Since there were jars in the photo as well, I thought it would be fun to create a treat jar too match in the colors of the photo.
