Feeling Fruity

Fab challenge at Colour Create this week. Use any of the following colours: Strawberry, raspberry, kiwi, tangerine and blackberry. Optional extra to include fruit. I went for raspberry and kiwi and made a set of 6 thank you cards. And afterwards I realised I'd only used two colours when I should have picked three, so I'm hoping I can cheat a little and count the black as blackberry!!!!!

All patterned paper and sentiments from Pink Petticoat

I love this collection from Pink Petticoat, aptly named 'You're one in a melon'. The colours are right up my street. I only printed off 3 A4 pieces of card and a few sheets of the sentiments. The first card only took 5 minutes to make so I thought I'd use up all the printed paper, minus a few scraps and make a set.
I was going to be very industrious and make a wallet or folder to pop them in but I ran out of time. Maybe something for another day.
No time for blog hopping again tonight as got too much to get done, I promise I'll make up for it over the weekend and visit as many blogs as I can.


  1. Hi hun I love it when people show lots of different ways to use a set of papers or a stamp for the same thing. Great set of cards and I am sure the black will count for the blackberry. Hugs Pascale

  2. Brilliant use of the PP papers. I hate waste too, many papers just get curled up edges if I don't use them up!
    Well done you!
