I started with Old Olive ink (SU!) and then used my Aqua Painter to soften the leaves and give it more of a watercolored effect. I stamped the flowers with Real Red ink, and then used a couple stick stamps by Judith and added the berries (also in Real Red) and the holly leaves stamped in Mossy Meadow (SU!). My sentiment is PTI's "Think Big Favorites: #21" and I also added the Judith stick stamp of the holly leaves in Mossy Meadow ink off the tail of the letter "G". I finished with a few pearls in the centers of the red flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a wonderful Thursday! I'm off to make salsa today...it's gotten to be a yearly event as store bought just doesn't hold a candle to the homemade! Here's the recipe if anyone's interested:
26-30 tomato's (skinned and diced)
5 onions - chopped
3 green peppers - chopped
2 red peppers - chopped
4 -5 Jalapeno peppers - seeded and chopped (if you like a little more bite, leave some of the seeds in)
3 - 5 12oz cans of tomato paste (depending on how thick you like your salsa - I use 5)
1 1/2 cups white vinegar
4 Tbs salt
4 tsp pepper
3 Tbs garlic powder
1/4 cup sugar
Cook 2 hours covered on low - stir often to avoid burning. (Do NOT boil!)
This recipe will make 18 - 20 pint jars. Process in water bath for 20 - 25 minutes.
