Christmas Village




I had time this morning to make another card using the pretty Winter Town stamp from HA, I only used a portion of it and also added the embossed snow to be able to cut out this tag shape, The ink is a Distress one called Seedless. I seem to be making more cards this year in unseasonal colours!  This is another card for this months Hero Arts Challenge. "Deck the Halls!"



I just thought I would share what has been keeping me busy this week,  I have been foraging  in the local countryside for blackberries and rose-hips to make these drinks. The blackberry liqueur is delicious and I am saving it for Christmas, its perfect when the weather turns cold.  The rose-hip is an old recipe, its packed with vitamin C and is meant to fend off colds.  When I was little we were always given a spoon of rose-hip syrup every day during the cold winter months.

Back to school tomorrow for me and then the countdown to Christmas really begins!!

Another beautiful card Sally! I am loving the untraditional colours. Wish I lived close by, I could come and have a sip of that Blackberry Liqueur!

Gorgeous card - love the seedless preserves color you used. And, those bottled syrups look very professional, too. BTW, I absolutely love all of the blues that can be seen in your kitchen in that photo. My kitchen is blue and white, also!!
