Sweets for my Sweet

Today is my Husbands Birthday
What do you get the man who has all he wants?
Its not that we have everything its that we are content with what we have we are easily pleased and are not really that materialistic and therefore making it difficult to buy for each other sooooo I decided to get him some Dolce & Gabbana aftershave.
and also make him a sweetie jar
so I got a kilner jar and fill it with some of his favourites
we have a great sweet shop in Penrith
where you can still buy sweets by the quarter.
so I decided to make a card, bag for the aftershave
and decorate the sweetie jar

Here is a close up of the card 

and the bag decoration. 

and the sweetie jar with sentiment.

I really enjoyed making this and he love it all so that's a result

Whimsy Inspiration - Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments Challenge - Anything Goes with a sentiment
