Gratitude Jar (Sassy)

I am so excited to be featured at She's A Sassy Lady today!!  

I decorated a Gratitude Jar for a good friend.  I have a friend who is a scrapbooker, but she doesn't own an electronic die cutter.  I cut out things for her all the time when we go to crops together as well as share my extra cuts.  I never mind making cuts for her because she doesn't ask too often.

She bought this jar at the beginning of this year to make a Gratitude Jar.  Her word for 2014 is Gratitude and she is including her family - which is super cool!!

The jar was blank and she asked me for my input.  I came up with a few designs on my cameo:
With a teenage son, the middle option was quickly ruled out!!!  The option on the right was too tall.  In order for the letters to look good on the option on the left, I added a greenery branch/wheat top to fill the extra space where the second "t" was.  I really liked it once I got it together!! 
I cut it out of black vinyl to match the chalkboard sticker on the opposite side.
I did a similar jar in 2013 but it was for me not my entire family.  This may be great for us next year!!  What are you grateful for?  I am grateful today for the sun shining, my son's arm is healing nicely from his surgery, and my husband is not travelling this week!!!
