i needed a thank you card so i opened a cute fruit set from my friend sue for my birthday. this is also the first time i used the letraset aquamarkers i won from the penny black at allsorts challenge in march; very fun to play with – i’ll keep practicing. the ribbon reel challenge is summer fruit and and use two ribbons/lace or twine, at least one brad and to include a summer fruit element. i used two brads; first i coloured a green brad red and inserted it into the white flower brad. i’m also submitting this to the free and easy challenge at allsorts and the summer theme at the secret crafter. thanks for popping by.
