fun with fruit

I tell you, that Tart and Tangy set is just too sassy! Neesha and I had lots of fun making fruit-themed projects. She made this cute card and this delicious peach and blueberry pie. Man, it was good! So good, in fact, that Savi (my super-picky eater) even tried a bite! Like I said, fun with fruit...

These are what I came up with. First, can I just say how much fun I had coloring in the images with the markers?!? I literally was giddy. The 3"x3" card is on the textured purely pomegranate paper with a soft sky scallop circle. I paired my fruit with the "sweet" sentiment from the retired So Very set. I like the "sweet" sentiment with the fruit so much that I'm permanently storing that stamp in the Tart and Tangy box. The next card is the thank you card that I made for my friends who came to my open house (so check your mail, girls!). The base is old olive with so saffron and rose red strips. I colored with the old olive, rose red, and pumpkin pie markers. And again, I borrowed a layout from Stampin' Success.

Apologies for this second picture. I didn't get a chance to take the picture until after I gave the girls their bath this evening and so I lost all the good light. We had a pretty tough day here. Neither Savi nor Jaya took a nap today. It was a l-o-n-g afternoon to say the least! I did get a chance to put my feet up after the girls fell asleep and indulged in some Dancing with the Stars. What a finale! I am proud to admit that all my votes went to Kristi Yamaguchi. She (and Mark) rocked the house!

Thanks for visiting! Hey Jerry, did you get the paper?? :)

these are really cute! i love coloring on stamps too! hey, this is probably a stupid question, but where does the "sweet" stamp come from? it's not part of tart and tangy is it?
