Getting Fruity

Morning all!

Ooh, the weather is so lovely, it really is starting to look like summer! And about time if you ask me, I'm looking forward to skirts and dresses without tights and bare feet :)

First of all, thank you all again for your lovely comment you've left me over the week and my apologies for not coming to visit you. There was barely enough time to take care of my DT duties and the entire month of June seems to be about the same. But I will come and return the favour and visit your lovely blogs, bear with me :)

In the mean time, I have a card to share with you for the new challenge @ Fab 'n Funky, where we challenge you to get your five a day by using fruit in creations. We are sponsored this week by the lovely Stamp Fairy and we received some images to play with, here's Lenny holding some cherries:

* Stampfairy Lenny Fruits 3, coloured with Promarkers & Spectrum Noirs
* DCWV Street Lace, Echo Park For the Record & Flower Fairies DPs
* MS Doily Lace edge punch
* Card Candi Vintage Berries
* Red Twinkles
* Whimsy Stamps Summertime sentiments

I basically had to search through my entire crafty stash, as I didn't seem to have anything fruity at all in my stash! No papers, no embellishments, nothing! Safe to say, a huge oversight on my part, which I'm sure I will rectify fairly shortly ;) I finally dug up some paper from the bottom of the pile with cherries on, so I did manage after all. I hope you can join us, I am looking forward to your vitamin-C rich creations :)

* My Heart Pieces (Use a Sentiment)
