Happy Earth Day! It is also Day 53-Fun with Fruit at 365 Cards. I luv this stamp, which is from Cowtown Stamps mostly because it's different. I CASE'd a card of luvmyboys&stampin on SCS, altho hers is much simpler. I think I tried to get too detailed. Anyway, the patterned paper is SU's Delicate Dots, with Certainly Celery cardstock, some Bazzill brown, and some ivory. The leaves are a Sizzlit die cut. I also used a ticket corner punch, markers, Kiwi Kiss ink, ColorBox Olive Pastel and Chestnut chalk, as well as 3 brads and some sheer brown ribbon. My favorite part is how the leaves are touching each other! I couldn't decide which sentiment to use. It was between two of a kind or the perfect pear/pair. I didn't know which way to spell it, pear or pair, so I decided two of a kind was easier.

I received some wonderful awards yesterday that I am grateful for from 2 creative gals that I am extremely inspired by:

Diana's AUsome Creations - The Karma Award: These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers.

The Kristie Sessions - Lemonade Award: The Lemonade Stand Award is for being a blogger who shows great attitude and gratitude.

The deal is to nominate others and share the luv. Since a lot of the 365'ers have already received these, I'd just like to say that if you comment on a consistant basis here, (and you know who you are), these awards are for you too! So grab them and put them on your blog, and if you don't have one print them out anyway and put them up somewhere to remember how much you mean to me and this crazy craft that keeps me going.

I hope you have an awesome Earth Day and do something special for yourself and others to celebrate it.

Did you watch Idol last nite? Who's going home? I think it's gotta be Lil, and maybe Anoop? I still luv Danny.

Thanks for visiting, for all of your wonderful comments, and take care!

Peace and Luv,

I like the pear/pair card. Very pretty, they look like they are holding hands/leaves :)

This is a Fantabulous card. WOW. Yea, I am a bit late commenting but you guessed the LOSERS from last week. I am pulling for Adam. I am just in love with him. We don't get to vote but he and of course Danny would also win my vote
