LIM Challenge - Week 26 - Lucky Dip - Fruity



Good Morning LIMettes. Nice here in the Loire today. OH is out gardening. Done the H... W....... and cleaned the silver so the rest of the weekend is ours. Another Grandprix to watch should be exciting after last weeks race. I shall not be around next week end as we are off to UK to celebrate Felix George's 1st birthday (our first grandson) should be fun as our son and his wife are not expecting us to turn up. Big suprise (I hope).

My card this week is a "get well soon" When I saw the subject for this week I immediately thought of apples. Our trees here are loaded (note - must pick them to take to UK) I have used white hammered cut lengthways (fold at the top) to make a tent shape.

Punches out three red and one green apple and mounted them on to "inchies" coloured with my promarkers. Sentiment done with the Xyron Runner - Font "Chalkboard" and added "Get well soon"

Thanks again to everyone who left lovely comments on my last weeks cards.

  2. Super card Sandra... and very quick too. I don't think I'd dare trust my handwriting for a sentiment.
    Well done!
