When I think of fruit, the Tart and Tangy stamp set springs to mind and, since my frazzled brain couldn't decide which of the yummy fruit to choose, I've made a fruit salad! Come and see:
The sun is out here in Buckingham today so I thought I'd go bright and zingy with a Tempting Turquoise card base! I stamped the fruit, cut them out (punches make this quick and easy), chopped some of them up and arranged them in a border.
Here's a close-up which I've just realised is a bit blurry! (Sorry - I've lost my turbo glasses and am having to make do with some really weak ones that mean I keep bumping into things!) The 'hello' is from the Hello Again stamp set which happened to be out on my desk.
Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Tart and Tangy, Hello Again
Ink: Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry, Real Red
Card stock: Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
You can buy any of these supplies from me and I can have them delivered to your address in the UK. Just send me an email or give me a call on 01280 820593.
Okay, fun over. Just off to clear up, make a birthday cake, wrap some prezzies... my boy's turning into a teenager tomorrow. He shares a birthday with Harry Potter - how cool is that?! Once, at the beginning of Potter mania, he came to me and told me that he was having a lot of difficulty seeing things. Things seemed quite blurred he said, looking at me with his enormous blue eyes. I immediately whisked him off to the opticians where the first inkling I had that he wasn't being entirely truthful was when he headed straight for the Harry Potter display and gazed wistfully at the round spectacles. When the optician brought him out she seemed quite worried. "He tells me that his vision is quite blurred but I've done all the tests and can't find a thing wrong," she said. I'm sure I went right down in her esteem when I said airily that I expected he would grow out of it and beat a hasty retreat!
I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone's fruity creations this week, but that will have to wait until I've got my chores done! I'll be back here on Monday with a masculine card - my son's birthday card of course! See you then,
