Something Sweet

Good morning Bloglanders

I hope you are having a fabulous Tuesday.  Today I'm sharing something entirely different - labels for my jam jars! And this is it:

I love cooking - baking bread, preparing food and making jam.  Once a year I go to Robertson to get apricots and I make the most beautiful jars of jam.  You can taste the sunshine in it - reminds me of summer  whole year round. A lot of them ends up as hostess gifts and I love to add a label to the jar with my name, the type of jam and a vintage. (my winemaking history coming through!)

I did the labels in photoshop and if I can figure out how to share a free downloadable file, I'll share it with you right here on Play as U Go.  The labels are actually round but I love to cut them with scalloped edges. Now for the surprise - The Play Date Cafe challenge #153 colors:

        Bubblegum ... Tangerine ... Pear

And my interpretation:

OK maybe my "pear" is a bit lighter than it should be but in Sunny SA that is what they look like to me. I'm definately linking up!  If you want to see the rest of the entries, please click here.

I'm off to my HUGE Etsy order. Have a great day and please come back to play.
