Upcycled jar

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

I have used Polkadoodles Sugar Birdie in Serif Craft Artist to produce the two labels to decorate my jars.  Some of the elements were recoloured in orange to match my kitchen and I made up a little poem that was typed onto a semi-transparent white elipse so that it could be read against the decorative background; this is why some of the design appears faded.  I just love mushrooms and toadstools and this is one of the things that first attracted me to Polkadoodles!



Here are today’s challenges: – anything but a card – anything goes – anything goes – anything goes – anything goes – colour me happy – c is for colourful – anything goes – monochrome – anything but a card

Although the poem is aimed at my children, but ‘just take one’?  That’s a good post-Christmas message for me too!
