An Apple a Day


It's a bit late in the day, but here's my card for this week's Challenge over at Charisma, our theme this week is Fruity Colours, with the option of adding a fruity image.

I went for Anya with her apple and teamed it with some retired SU! papers called Washington Apple - here's the details (all SU! unless otherwise stated):

Stamp - Anya, coloured with PM's
Sentiment - Trendy Trees
Flowers - Darling Dots (Hostess set) coloured with markers in Real Red; Barely Banana
Ink - Real Red
DSPs - Washington Apple
Cardstock - Real Red; Whisper White
Ribbon - Whisper White; Real Red
Word Window Punch; 1" & 1¼" circle punches

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Pollycraft - Red & White
Totally Gorjuss - Monotone

I'd like to apologise for not being a very good blogger lately, I'm still struggling with the old mojo & have not been well this week with a cold on my chest which has left me feeling bleurh (I think that's the medical term) so sorry for not getting around to many blogs and leaving comments for everyone that's been kind enough to comment on my blog and entered the challenge blogs I'm on the DT for - I shall be giving myself a good talking to & will try & get back into the swing of things again very soon.

I knew something was up! You feel better soon, you hear! And I bet your mojo reappears as soon as you do. Maybe your mojo was with mine in the Caribbean? Personally, I think talk of your mojo being absent is rubbish, if this card is anything to go by. So, you, HA! xxx
