Happy Fall Y'all!

Hello Everyone,

It is defiantly feeling like fall around here. The leaves are changing, the air is crisp and I am in the mood for fall decorating, baking and canning.  I was able to enjoy a little baking the other day and thought I would put a little gift package together for my neighbor of some yummy treats.

I made this bread gift box holder for this yummy homemade pumpkin bread. I wrapped a little tulle around it, added a gem flower and a tag. I also added a couple sweet pumpkins cut from Create A Critter at 1 3/4 and 2. The sentiment is from My Craft Spot ~Sweet Sentiments Set #2.

 

I also made some yummy jam with my daughter who stopped over with a 5 gallon pail of fresh blueberries.  Oh my goodness, these were so good! I ended up making about 8 jars of blueberry/rhubarb jam so I am adding this to my gift package as well. I wrapped the jar with the same pattern paper, added some tulle, button  and tag. The sentiment is again from My Craft Spot and I used SU punches for the tag and for on top of the jar.

I wish I could give ya' all some.....sure your mouth is watering by now, ha? Sorry for the teasing...LOL! Have a great fall day and thanks for stopping!!

I am also entering this in the following challenges:
1.) My Craft Spot ~Challenge #25~Happy Harvest
2.) Frosted Designs ~Fabulous Friday Challenge~Use punches on project
3. ) Decorate to Celebrate ~Challenge #8~Anything Goes

  4. Sherrie, this is a GORGEOUS set! The colors are posititely gorgeous.. so rich and harvesty. (Is that a word?) I love the sweet buttons, sparkly flower, adorable pumpkins, and perhaps the prettiest shade of ribbon ever. :o) I love when you use tulle. It makes my heart happy. :o) Beautiful job!

    And as for the contents.. oh my gosh! They sound delicious! Now I'm hungry all over again, but I have no muffins left! Do you have a spare loaf? ;)

    Hugs and blessings! :o)

  13. I am jealous -- for two reasons -- you can bake and make jam, and you have a Fall season that is already starting:-)
