Let's Get Fruity!


      The current challenge over on the House Mouse and Friends Blog, is #123.  The hostess for this challenge is Paula, and the theme she has chosen is "Let's Get Fruity".  I was pleased to be able to use a mouse, sentiment, and charm that I won from a previous challenge/blog hop. I love them!


     I have been wanting to try making a window for my sentiment for ages, and this just worked out perfectly, design wise.  I was also pleased with how my apple came out, as I was looking at one that went into hubby's lunch and it had streaks of the colors just like this!


Here is what I used:
Stamps:  HMUR1069 Bobbing on Apples, F1212 Mice at Play
Paper & Card:  Pure Luxury, DCWV
Ink:  Versafine, Copic markers
Dies:  Spellbinders Classic Squares
Embellishments:  bakers twine from Pizzazz Aplenty, charm, dew drops

I would also like to post this card over at Simon Says Stamp, which has the same theme this week!

     I hope you enjoy the rest of your week, and I thank you for stopping around!
