Dragon's Dream Tag Challenge - The Fruits of my Labour

The challenge from Tag it On is right up my street this week as I have been making Lavender Gifts for Christmas Presents so this tag is to label the fruits of my labour to be sure.

The Lavender Jelly I made with the apples and lavender out of my garden and were the result of a lot of hard work this year, building trellises for the apple to grow up against the house. It is delicious on toast, crumpets, scones or warm on ice cream. The labels were coloured with TH Inks and the stamps are the lavender and butterfly from the Crafters Companion Flower Fairies set. I think I'll use the fairy on the lavender sugar to go with the jelly.  Will also be making a lavender pillow, and some lavender shortbread to go with this, will make a lovely pressy!

Thanks to the Dragon's Dream for the inspiration and the kick up the behind to get this finished.

How lovely it all sounds, I'm sure the recipients will love their home-made pressies. The label and tag are beautiful. Wish I had more time to do this sort of stuff.

Oh this sounds dreamy Michelle, you've presented it so beautifully and the contents I'm sure are delish! I know I'd be over the moon to receive a gift like this, hand made in every way and so wonderfully decorated, I think it's more lovely than anything you could buy in a shop. Well done for being so organised too! Chris x
