Good morning

It's a bit dull out there this morning, but I have lots to do and the time seems to be slipping away. I did intend to do a lot of sewing for family abroad this year...........but somehow I have not started yet!!
It will probably end up with a Christmas cushion each as I am running out of posting time!!
Here is a card that I found in draft, made a few months ago, just plain and simple....

Blue matting, creative embossing flower folder.bookmark stamp and sentiment from our daily bread. ribbons, slider brooch and gems from stash. I prefer a simple sympathy card.

Last week I got my spicy pickles done for Christmas
I topped, tailed and peeled 5 lbs of onions...............

They had to sit in brine for 24 hours, so I boiled up the vinegar and pickling spices and let it go cold.

It made 7 jars which are now sitting in my shed and maturing for Christmas, the house smells wonderful for 2 days while this process is happening lol.

I am entering the following challenges;

Love to create ---------------anything goes
Melonheadzs friends -----------------Add a sentiment
Not just cards -------------------Anything goes
Jo's scrap shack -------------Sympathy
Tag your it challenge ----------inspiration tag

I hope you have a lovely day and thank you for your visit

Hugs Tilly x
