Something Sweet

Happy Friday Bloglanders

I hope you are having a Funky Friday!!  It's birthday season down under in Sunny SA and I had to get ahead with my pressie prep.

Let's start with my Apricot Jam.

Every year during November I cook a LOT of Apricot jam - I always say Wynand will eat it on his porridge if I allow him to. Mostly, I use it to serve with freshly baked bread (I do make my own), to bake Hertzoggies, Jam Rolls an to give away as thank-you-pressies.

For the thank-you-pressies I add a homemade tag / label and the inspiration for these ones came from the SimonSaysStamp Wednesday challenge - 


I love botanical prints and got these images from here.  It does look yummy, doesn't it?? Can you believe that I couldn't get any apricot images from the Silhouette store? Well, I made my own:

And I added one of the die cuts to the lid of the jar.

Easy Peasy and I have a batch of thank-you-gifts ready and prettied-up to give away to family and friends. 

Tomorrow I'm doing some more pressies. Please check back and I'll show exactly what's cooking at Hamman HQ.
