>>> 365 Cards Day 53

Today's challenge is 'Fun with Fruit'. Well, as the name implies, create a card with fruit on it. After pondering for a while, thought I create this:

A bunch of grapes using buttons. Black grapes too ('cos they taste better but bloody expensive too!) Thought it was a good idea but realised I didn't like what I've done. Anyway, patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket Haunted and WRMK Nonsense. Sentiment by Purple Onion Designs.

So I decided to start afresh and created another tutti fruttie card. Here's the next effort:

Stamped images from October Afternoon Detour. First time using them. Bought it when it was the rage then and got caught up in the hype and upon laying my hands on them, they remained in their plastic sheet untouched till today! Sentiment by Purple Onion Designs. Coloured using Promarkers.

I would like to thank all of you who have left comments and took the time to stop here. Rest assured that I've ventured into your blogs and have looked at your creations too. I may be a little slow at leaving comment on yours as I'm snowed under at the moment with scrapping assignments. I'm primarily a scrapbooker but ventured into cards lately to try and use up my leftover paper scraps! Vicky if you are reading this, I've not been able to get into your blog so sorry if I've not left any comments. (Hope you'll invite me in! )

Thanks again to those who have left me awards too. Will sort them out after dinner! TTNF!
