A Jar Just for You~ The Cutting Cafe and A Winner!!

Good morning everyone!
This week the DT over at
are showcasing these adorable new files...
they are jam packed with tons of adorable images, sentiments and toppers to add to all these different jars!!
Here is what I came up with
My whole idea for this card was to go a little rustic :)
I cut the jar out using my cameo~ I <3 this machine 
 I re sized the cut file to A2 size...the card size I prefer to design with which in turn made the jar more squat which I also LOVE!!
I used the print and cut feature to color in my jar with this awesome printed paper from the Silhouette Store
The sentiment is also from the same file
which I printed and used my fiskars oval punch to cut out.
I tied some Trendy Twine around the top and added a simple black button.
Some white gel pen doodles and some Gathered Twig Distress Ink and I have my card.
I thought this would be a great one to give with a gift of cookies in a jar maybe?!?!?

Now make sure you check out the rest of the DT's projects and comment here (because I love to read them) and over at 
for your chance to win some files.

Speaking of winning some files I have a winner to announce from the 
Embossing Hop!!
The lucky winner of any 3 files from 
The Cutting Cafe
