Time for a card .... I really love the Flourishes fruit series. Not being a Copic owner - they're great for paper piecing! The little stippled dots really add a lot to the appearance of volume and to the shadowing.
For the background strips, I used a combination of "Thrift Store" papers from October Afternoon and "Dotty Biscotti" from PTI.
The peach is pieced with "In Bloom" paper and the leaves are from the "Pretty Pastels" line. I pierced and hand stitched the circle border ...
And the little sentiment is where it all started! :0)
Now for some HYOOGE news for me :0) Just a few minutes before we left to go away I discovered that I'd won Caardvarks' August Christmas Tags and Minis Challenge - sponsored by JustRite Stampers!!!!!
Eeeeeeeeeeep! I squealed so loudly every single member of the family came running to see if all was O.K. :0)!!!
The prize was FIVE (really and truly!) Christmas stamp sets and stampers from JustRite .... I have been walking on air for a week!
Thanks for visiting me and for letting me gush ....
Wooohoooooo! I'm soooooo excited!
