Just for you

Today's stamp simply challenge is to be well preserved!

Nov. 19 - ssnotime166 - Well Preserved! -- Sharon's words: Is anyone out there still canning, or freezing or drying your summer harvest?  Or is anyone preparing those previously preserved goodies for Thanksgiving or Christmas gifts?  Today is all about preserving our fruits of the harvest.  Take this food related theme wherever it brings you -- use food type stamps, papers or embellishments on a card, decorate a jar of canned goods, or even wrap and decorate a chocolate bar -- we're easy!  Let's just see some lovely fruits, veggies or any type of edible in today's creations!!!

 And I went with a good ol fashioned jar of home made salsa.  I love salsa fresh all year round, so I am making up a few big batches to have on hand.  I decided on a simple tag and twine trim. 

Sometimes- the simple look is just the ticket for what you are working on.  (Especially if you have already made a jar of something from scratch! ;)

I added a tag cut from Spellbinders S4-110 Classic Oval LG and stamped the sentiment from Lovely Labels 2 from Gina K Designs.  I wrapped some yellow twine around and threaded a button through to attach the twine too.
