♥ Simon Says... Let's Get Fruity! ♥

This week's super sweet challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog is all about Fruit! We want to see fruit on your creations! Cherries, pears, apples, grapes, etc! Can't wait to see what you all come up with!!

 For my card I used a fantastic Cling stamp by Unity Stamps called "Pear of a Recipe". I stamped it in black ink onto white cardstock. I then distressed the edges with my paper distresser tool and inked the edges with various brown inks. I then "colored" in the pear with some soft green pastel chalks and coated it with glitter.


 The papers are by Bazzill from the Vintage Marketplace Paper Pack and the background paper is also by Bazzill it is called Antique Newsprint. I also used a chipboard circle and heart by Maya Road which I painted white and distressed with ink and then added a K&Co. embossed sticker and a Hero Arts white heart pearl to it. I finished off the card with some seam binding, handmade stick pin, trims and Liquid Pearls.


And, don't forget, Heidi will generously give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!





One week from today my sister and brother-in-law are flying in from Memphis! We can't wait to see them! My oldest son especially is excited!! We haven't seen them since January. We have a week of fun planned! Can't wait! "Life is Sweet"!

Have a super wonderful day!
