Simon Says ,,,,, Tutti Frutti challenge :-)

Good morning hope all is well with you all :-) We had lots of fabulous entries to our photo inspiration challenge ,, and I collected some lovely cocktail recipes too !! :-)

Time for a new theme over on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and this week we want you to get fruity !!


We would like to see some fruit on your creation :-) stamps,papers,charms, buttons,,,,,easy :-)

As always we are sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a trolly dash around her store to the value of $25 !!

For my card I followed Jo's fab sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge

The DT are showcasing Basic Grey products on their creations this week :-) You don't have to use them for our challenge but if you have them we would like to see them :-)

I used my lovely Splish Splash a Citrus Bath
stamp ,, so cute :-) I coloured the image with copics and inked the edges with shabby shutters distress ink and yellow chalk ink. I then added my fave Star Dust stickles. the papers are Basic Grey from the Lime Rickey paper pad. I made the flower using Tim Holtz tattered floral die cuts and distress ink, pearl glimmer mist and stickles ,, oh and a pearl :-) The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub on and I added a few Robins Nest dew drops to finish :-)

I am also entering this into the Basic Grey Challenge whose theme is gingham :-)

The DT have made some gorgeous cards for you to see so hop on over to the Simon says Stamp Challenge blog to see them :-)

I have a blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp at the top of my blog if you would like to see it :-)
