Get Well Soon

I adore my neighbors. 
They have been so helpful since we moved in and have even adopted my daughter as one of their grandchildren:]
So when Mr. B got ill this past fall, a simple get well soon card wouldn't suffice.
I put my lil girl to work {she loves helping in the kitchen}
and made some super yummy cookies...Mr. B has a sweet tooth!
[You can find the recipe here.]
Rather than putting them on a flimsy paper plate I decided to make them have more feeling by dressing them up with some ribbon and a canning jar {with a wide opening.}

I sprayed the lid with silver paint and wrapped a "happy" colored ribbon around it.

I then made a card with my cricut and we went over for a visit with The B's.
It wasn't much but, a little extra effort is sure to show how much you care.
Mr. B was very grateful...and he did Get Well Soon:]
[A bakers dozen fit perfectly.]
