A little bit Pickled!

Hello there and thanks for popping in, hope you're having a good weekend, albeit probably a cold and damp one!
Not had an awful lot of time to hang out at my craft desk this weekend, and the "puppy prep" continues, and also though it was about time to get "Pickling" too. My Mother had an Uncle who always did the most amazing Pickled Onions, and its been something that I've wanted to do, in the run up to Christmas, for a few years now but always leave it too late - Well, I'm happy to report that three jars are now safely stored in my shed.....couldn't resist taking a photo of one of them first though!
 
 I did do a bit of colouring one evening, earlier in the week and I did managed to get as far as making one card at least, with one of the images.

                     

Have used the very lovely Milton from Wild Rose Studio, and have coloured him with the old promarkers, and layered the image using Go Kreate Scalloped Circle die. For the embossed sections I have used a Cuttlebug folder, which seems to be a popular one this time of year, the paper is from Bo Bunny. The sentiment is stamped onto a MB label die to which I added the top section of a Sizzix Key die (I would like to say I did this to add creative flair, but in truth it was added to cover up a hole where I had added a brad, but changed my mind, hehehe). The green ribbon and the candi are from my stash, the red gingham ribbon was a bit of a find in Asda - £1 for three metres.

I would like to enter this into these challenges:
crafty calendar - all things Christmas
little claires - Christmas
creatalicious challenges - Christmas time
ready-teddy-go - embossing
sparkles christmas challenge - have a beary Christmas
crafty ribbons - anything goes, with ribbon
moving along with the times - furry friends
i love promarkers - red & green

Thanks again for your visit, and especially for your lovely comments too....sending big hugs xx

  2. Great onions Lisa, love the jar!! I leave that sort of thing to my Mum, she's great with pickles and chutneys. What a lovely card, that's a great embossing folder and a fab Milton stamp. I found some bargain ribbon in Wilko yesterday, also £1 for 3 metres, lovely colours to go with their wrapping paper. Enjoy the rest of the weekend xx

  4. Hi Lisa, that is such a cute image and a fab card! Well done you with the pickles, I tried pickling onions a few years ago but it all went wrong!! The vinegar went all cloudy and mucky looking - they didn't taste that good either! Never did work out exactly what is was I did wrong. I stick to jam now - seem to be better at that!!!

  14. So sweet, Lisa. That embossing looks amazing.

    I made chutney this year for the first time ( too many tomatoes and apples being the cause) and the whole house stunk of vinegar for over three days! I'm hoping it was worth it! xx
