Less is More wk26 - feeling fruity

Well, I haven't missed a week yet, so although this week's Less is More challenge threw me completely I still had to come up with something!  Chrissie and Mandi would like to see 'fruity' creations this week...


I couldn't think of anything I could use at first, but then I remembered a pack of food/ baking related die cuts that came free with a magazine - hurrah!  Embossed a scrap of red card with a Stampin Up embossing folder, attached a square of card under the die cut image, set an eyelet with my poor neglected cropadile and added some gingham ribbon. Sentiment is from Pink Petticoat, cut out with the Stampin Up word window punch.  It's not very inspired I know, but at least I've managed to make something lol :o)

Apologies for being such a rubbish blogger this weekend, I've just been so busy!  I'll catch up with you all soon I promise!
