12 Weeks Of Christmas: Week 12 Last Minute Gifts - Apothecary Jars

I have thrown in a double whammy this week as I know you are all busy preparing for Christmas.  It is only 6 days away (eek!), so I figured you might need some more ideas.  I have a lot of teachers & family friends to buy for at Christmas & often find they get lumped into the chocolates or biscuit category.  This year I decided to spruce up their gifts with some little apothecary jars filled with chocolates.  I even made a coordinating card.  I made 5 of each colour scheme & liked both, but did prefer the Crumb Cake version.   Which colour do you like best?  I have just entered these little last minute gifts in the SUO only challenges #86 - Its Almost The Last Minute Challenge!  Why not pop on over & check out the other entries.

The first one uses Crumb Cake & Cherry Cobbler with the Season Of Style Paper Stack.

The second is my Pool Party version. This one has white embossing onto Pool Party with Smokey Slate & uses the Winter Frost Paper Stack.
