Simon Says Challenge - Let's Get Fruity !

I hope you all enjoyed your half term holidays with the kiddos last week ? We went off in our caravan (yes, again !) down to Looe in Cornwall and we had a fantastic time and the weather even decided to behave itself by the end of the week too !

I can't believe that its come round to Wednesday again and time for another Simon Says Challenge.

This week our challenge is "Let's Get Fruity" and we have a photo too for your inspiration.

The lucky winner will win a $50 shopping spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store !

The DP's are BasicGrey "Lemonade"

The image is by Penny Black and from a clear set called "Micey Day". This has been coloured with a mixture of Copics and ProMarkers.

The flowers and seam binding are from my stash.

The lovely flourish is a Magnolia Doohickey called "Heart Swirl".

The sentiment is from a little set of BasicGrey Gamma stamps I bought a long time ago but they were perfect for this image.

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing all your fruity projects !

I am entering my card into the following challenges :

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Doodlebug ! (I doodled on my DP's !!)

Craft Room Challenge - Anything Goes !

My Time to Craft - Wildlife

Tuesday Throwdown - Animals

Cupcake Craft - Things with Tails !

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave - they always mean so much !
