Feeling Fruity

OK, what can I say but thanks (not) to Mandi and Chrissie over on the Less is more challenge blog, for this week its the theme of Feeling Fruity and they would like to see fruit on our cards.

Easy you would think, but it reality not easy. I think I now know every single stamp that I own and every single sticker and paper, could I find any fruit - not on your nelly, well apart from this paper which was a freebie in a magazine, and the stamp that I have used lightly refers to fruit and I mean lightly - well it has the word Jam in it. So after looking at all the other gorgeous cards that have been entered, I decided I would have to go the same way as some of the others and make fruit, either that or tear the label off the Jam Jar (it has got strawberries on it).

I punched hearts in red card added black dots and drew the stem using a promarker, simples, so why has it taken me almost 2 days to come up with this. Thanks again Mandi and Chrissie, I almost gave up but didn't.

Thank you for looking

I'm so glad that you weren't defeated by this challenge.
I would have though that fruity colours would have been a breeze even if no fruity stamps were available, but you have come through with flying colours with this one... I just love the sentiment too!
Thanks so much
