Feeling Fruity

The Less is More challenge this week is: 
FEELING FRUITY

We would like to see fruit on your cards or fruit colours...easy peasy 'lemon' squeezy!


Easier said than done.  Do you know how many fruit stamps I have?  This is it.


This image is from the Faith in Nature set which is a Hostess option if you host a $150.00 workshop or more.

I inked the image with Soft Suede and stamped off once on scrap before stamping this image.  The pear is colored with ink and sponge daubers.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Faith in Nature, Blossoms Abound (retired)
Ink:  Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Pear Pizzazz, Always Artichoke
Paper:  Whisper White, Lucky Limeade
Other:  Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon, Ticket Corner Punch

And here's a picture of our boys.  Luke wanted to hold Jack with a little help from Nana.  It looks like serious business!  This was before Jack told us he wanted out of there! 


I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  It's raining here.  What a blessing!   We really need it.
 
Thanks for the visit and the lovely comments.  I hope to get by to see what you have done.
 
Enjoy!
