I have decided to have the majority of gifts I give this Christmas homemade, this is chilli jam curtesy of recipe from Nigella

This is mixed tomato chutney Nigel Slater recipe after I had a load of green tomatoes to use up

This is from bbc good food site, I saw something similar to this in one of those posh farm shops selling for £12.95!!

Apple box

I made this cute apple box tutorial here I made a strip from red card about an inch wide to which I am going to add some gingerbread men from M&S. I hand drew the apple then added card. The gingerbread men are some wooden cuts and I added liquid pearls to. The sentiment is Magnolia, I quite like how it turned out

Another Christmas Card

I have had another play with my distress inks in colouring in this card, went ok but her hair on one side is slightly darker than I would have liked. I inked the flowers and around the trees and fence.

Christmas Cards

I thought I would have a play with my distress inks. I I added liquid pearls to create some snow. I added glitter glass around the cards, I have seen a few cards on bogs doing that recently and love how it looks. I painted acrylic paint on the flowers and around the black cards. I added a charm to the ribbons

Flowers all from Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment LOTV
Ribbons from my stash
Charms from ebay
