Nikki's Blog Candy and a Challenge from me!

Today you have a couple of chances to win . . .

Nikki at Bunny-Zoe's blog has some yummy Basic Grey Figgy Pudding to give away as well as a sweet snow "woman" and sentiment. She recently reached 20,000 hits!! Wow, girl, and only 2 months ago was at 10K. Her blog is really sizzlin, so you better hurry over there now to see her terrific and CUUUUUTE creations!! Oh, yeah, while you are there, ya might want to comment so you can get in on the drawing, but if not you can just tell Nikki you are putting my name in again *wink* LOL (I wish!!)

Okay, now for my challenge. I recently tried my hand at canning, and not to badly if I do say so myself *wink* I didn't get a whole lot of cans for my hard work though (4 pints of salsa, 5 pints of pickled hot peppers, and with the help of my mother we made 13 pints of hot pepper jelly), but . . . I just have to show you how pretty they look. So . . . a good friend (Thanks, Deb) told me you should post a challenge on your blog with these pretty jars. So here it is. My challenge to you is to create a card with this picture as your inspiration.
You can either use the colors as your guide or think harvesting of vegetables from a garden. **ooh, I wish I had purchased that set from GinaK now** ah well, I will try and come up with something too. You have until next Saturday, September 20th to leave me a comment here with your link to your card (either your blog or any other web site ie SCS or Stamp Shack) showing us your creation! I will pick my favorite out of the bunch and also a random number to win an envelope of stamped images from me. ( I have some new High Hopes images coming and just got some new House Mouse too). So if you are game, leave your comment with your link to your card/creation here by next Saturday, September 20th to win!

oh wow, aren't you clever? Great idea for a challenge! I just tried making strawberry jam (jelly) for the first time the other week, it is delicious, I won't ever be able to eat the ready made stuff again!

Way to go!! I've previously canned jellies & jams, and even garden tomatoes ... but never the hot stuff! hahaha I love the look of freshly canned goodies, cooling on the cabinets. Yuummmmmm! Great job for a late-summer weekend!
