P is for Plum - jam that is!

Not a card today, but a totally domestic and useful bit of stamping!

My parents are coming to stay very soon so for once I have decided to label the jams I have made to make life a little easier.  Not many jars yet mind you, but still, six jars is better than an empty larder.  Anyway, I do hope to make a  little more before autumn rolls in and fruit becomes more expensive.

Normally I bottle the jam, pop in a cupboard and then the guessing game begins - is it plum?  is it apricot, is it something else??  This time I've made little labels for my jars, 'a' is for apricot, 'p' is for plum....

What I used:

Card:  White

Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Pumplin Pie, So Saffron, Old Olive, Regal Rose

Stamp Sets:  Big Deal alphabet (retired), Sweet Summer (what could be more appropriate when bottling all the goodness of the season!)

Tools and other fun stuff:  1 3/4" circle punch, double sided tape, sponges.
