Day 3 Decorated Jars Oct 19

Hi everyone hope you are enjoying the hop! This is a jar of caramel dipping sauce, great on pies, cakes and deserts or straight out of the jar and into my mouth!!! LOL. The label sentiment is from "Holly Greetings" by MFP as is the ribbon and card stock. The sentiment tag is from "Ginger Cookies" by MFP.


This jar is a candle, decorated with Holly Greetings by MFP, the sentiment is from Ginger Cookie's. I stamped the sentiment on MFP glossy card stock and colored with Copic's. The punched back ground is made from a corner punch by M.S.



Here is a view of the top.


Be sure to check out the rest for some exciting and gorgeous creations.
