FOSTV Holiday Gifts

Happy Monday Friends, can you believe it is only one week until Christmas Eve!! 
Yes, it  is Monday and time for another Friends of Speedy TV Challenge. 
This weeks Challenge is Happy Holidays 

I need a few small gifts so I spent yesterday baking goodies. I made several
 different quick breads and some bars. I also made some Lemon  and Cranberry Curd
 to go along with the breads. Its always good to have some yummy curd 
to spread on bread for a quick desert or snack.

One of the great new December stamp sets is called Recipe Card Starter. I used two of the
 images from this set for the tags on the breads. I love these new images so perfect for
 all types of cooking themes. After coloring them they were cut out with a 
Spellbinder Label # 17 . Using two white lunch bags I also cut a window out with the
 Spellbinder Label #17 and added cellophane over the window.A
perfect quick wrapper for your treats.

To make covers for the jars of curd  I cut out two rounds of white fabric adding som 
faux stitching to the edges. Using the Lemon image from Pucker UP set I stamped and 
colored it on one circle. 

Since there was not a cranberry image I used the Cherry image from
 the Celebrate Big set. Masking and not using the stem I used it to
make a cluster of Cranberries.

For each jar of curd I made a tag cut from the Spellbinder Label # 13. Once again 
I used the Cherry image to make the Cranberries, colored them and cut them out
 to add to the Cranberry Curd tag.

  For the Lemon Curd I stamped and colored the
 Lemon Slices from the Celebrate Big Set and cut out to
add to the tag cut with the Spellbinder label #13.

All the stamp sets used can be found at
 We would love for you to stop by and join our Challenge this week.
The winner will receive this Stamp Set
