Autumn Harvest!!


















I just though I would show you the jars of Piccalilli that I made yesterday ready for the winter.  I love homemade pickles and chutneys and this Piccalilli is perfect with jacket potatoes, cold meats and it goes especially well with chunky bread and cheese.  It will be ready in about six weeks time but I had a sneak taste yesterday and its already really yummy!!




















I also had time to make a couple more Christmas cards to add to my stash, still need to make alot more yet!!


















This one is quite a clean and simple design for me but I am pleased with it and managed to resist adding some bling to the background.




































Another fairly clean card, the background is just stamped and distressed with Victorian Velvet ink, then I stamped my Wreath stamp twice with Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint.  I have highlighted the leaves with a glitter pen which is a little difficult to see in the photograph, I cut out the wreath and pop dotted it to my card, the, added some gems and ribbon.
Its half term this week so a week off for me, unfortunately DH wants to decorate the kitchen, I just hope I get time for lots of crafting!!

Hi Sally the Piccalilli looks scrummy - you've made me hungry! (luckily dinner is in the oven -LOL)

Love that tree stamp I've got one similar in a Hero Arts set - you've definitely inspired me with your lovely cards.

Hope you enjoy your week off (even if you do have to decorate your kitchen!)

Speak soon
