And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Feeling Fruity

Good's my day to post on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog so I thought I would share that post here as well!  Hope you are having a great week!

The new Sweet 'n Sassy clear stamp set, "Punny Fruits & Veggies," reminded me of the fact that when I taught first grade we would always celebrate Valentine's Day with a party.  Being conscious of food allergies and heath issues, we would have "February Fruit and Valentine Veggies," with dip of course, at our party.   Since I was feeling kind of fruity today, I decided to play with the cute fruit from this adorable set!

Creative Nugget:  A little 3 X 3 box holds the set of four fruity notecards. There's a wonderful tutorial for this little box which can be found HERE in the resources section on Splitcoaststampers.  Each of the fruits from the set were colored with copic markers and cut with a Spellbinders Circle Nestie and mounted on a scalloped circle that matched the card base.  These were then layered onto Basic Grey patterned paper and a heart embossed panel that had been punched with a scalloped border. A strip of patterned paper was added under the scallops and a bit of Baker's Twine finished the card.  Here are all four notecards.

I just love how each of the sentiments is perfect for each piece of fruit!

After seeing this post, you may be feeling a bit fruity, too!  Hop on over to the Sweet 'n Sassy store and pick up some fruit and veggies and have fun!

Blessings to you and thanks for stopping by today!
