Simon Says...Summer Fruits

What a lovely theme it is over on Simon Says this week....Summer Fruits. You can use fruits or fruit colours on your creation.

I've used this House Mouse image which I recieved in a recent swap amongst some of my fellow Stamptacular DT members, I think he's perfect for a fruity challenge. Coloured with watercolour pencils and copics. I thought it would be something a bit different to cut the image out as a sort of half circle so the shape looks a bit like a fruit segment. All papers are Funky Fairys - Feelin Fruity and Simply Brushed. The fruity looking flowers are Papermania, ric-rak was from a Do-Crafts goody bag from a few months back and the green brads are from my stash. Scalloped card base is from Craftwork Cards and I've inked the edge of each scallop in green or pink.


I'm meant to be adding an extra item today to my blog candy, but after taking pictures of some cards the batteries went in the camara before I could get a piccy of the extra goody, so please accept my apologies I will get it on for you probably later tomorrow when I get back from work.
