 Hello everyone,

Thinking now, I could have made Christmas food for this challenge to keep my Christmas posts running but I was in a different place at the time, so fruit it is..and it is our fabulous Brenda's turn to be hostess over at LITTLE RED WAGON  and her theme is "Let's Eat - food "..

I die cut these wonderful and fabulous size, pears in a very light yellowy green card stock,
then inked up the edges a bit with olive green dye ink..

Added so little dots with black gel pen and a few highlighted with a white gel pen, and continuing to prattle on as I didn't take a lot of pictures..

Went right across my scoreboard scoring this A4 light grey card stock..
then I guess I cut them into panels, wonder where my mind was on this day..
some where else I guess..

picked out some papers and cardstock and made my panels.

A simple thank you and some cute little wooden hearts coloured with my markers to make them brown
although they look black and very well could be, but I think brown..

Yes, brown..

and then it was done!..

Not much left to say, except, thank you so much for stopping by and do try to pop over and join in out food challenge this week..

I'll see you tomorrow with Christmas # 23

Chrissy, this is gorgeous, itʻs something about those beautiful, very elegant appearing pears. They are much too pretty to eat but definitely meet the challenge. I love the background, looks like headboard for sure.
