Totally Fruity,

Hi Folks, brilliant weather here today, hope you had some too! I've had a go at the LIM 26 challenge, Feeling Fruity, great title girls, love it:0)
FEELING FRUITY
We would like to see fruit on your cards or fruit colours...easy peasy 'lemon' squeezy!


I only have one stamp with anything even vaguely fruity and this is it, so I had no choice but to use it. Having said that I've seen some very interesting and innovative cards over at LIM, clever work going on:0)

There's brilliant inspiration from the Divas themselves, Mandi and Chrissie. Just click on their names and you will fly to their personal blogs :0)




I did struggle with this though, getting the colours in balance on the card and retaining the clean and simple ethos was quite a challenge.
Hope you like, It was good fun to use some really bright colours for a change.
I'm off now to check out all the lovely LIMettes work, could take a while TTFN, Gay xxxx
