Canning salsa

This last week my sister-in-law was here and we had a day of canning.  We live very close to Harry and David and they had a peach sale.  Peaches were 10 cents a pound!  I don't know what possessed me to be different from the crowd (except that family did not eat the peaches I canned last year), but I decided to can salsa instead.

Our dear friends are on vacation for 3 weeks and our son is house sitting and he keeps bringing home all of these beautiful peppers and I had to do something with them.  So I made salsa for us and a couple for them for a nice little returning home present.  Mighty nice of me considering it was from their garden, don't you think?

I made the label for the salsa and the oven and mitt from the From my Kitchen cart and the label on the jar is from Preserves cart.  I hope they enjoy it as much as we have!

Cooking with Cricut challenge #99

For the Cooking with Cricut challenge this week I made this entry for the back-to-school theme.  I cut the apple from the Plantin Schoolbook.  This is such a go-to cartridge for me.  So there you go, simple and to the point.

Fantabulous Cricut contest - Beach

Fantabulous Cricut has a new contest this week.  Water theme.  I think this fits!  I used the Life is a beach cart for the Gecko and BEACH, BABY letters, Birthday Bash for the banner.  Simple but I like it!

Cooking with Cricut challenge Halloween entry

Well, I was feeling crafty yesterday and put together another entry for Cooking with Cricut.  I'm starting to think ahead for Halloween.  Probably because I got the Over the Hill cart and I'm getting excited about it.  I found this card design on Lezlye's blogspot and fell in love with it!

I used the cat from the Paper Doll Dress up cart, the frame is from Gypsy Wanderings, the border is from Elegant Cakes and of course the cuttlebug.  I try not to use too many cartridges on my cards because it gets so time consuming, but I had nothing better to do yesterday!

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge 122 - Camping theme

I haven't done challenges for a little bit, now 2 in one week.  I'm feeling lucky!  The theme is camping, the place is  I made this card using the Designer's Calender for the "CAMP", Birthday bash for the "out", Create a Critter for the fire and Plantin Schoolbook for the leaves and the circle.  P.S.  I love the Center Point option on the Cricut.  Of course, I got to take out my cuttlebug for the wood grain look and to liven up the flames of the fire!
