Less Is More Challenge #26


Happy Weekend. How's it treating you? Mine is great....today is my Birthday! In a little while, my family is taking me out to dinner. For a present, they chipped in together and upgraded my Iphone to a version 4.....whoopie. It's so much faster and more fun that my 3. I've been informed that for a 60ish lady, I'm way cool to have and and be able to use (the operative word apparently) an iphone. And just to prove that I get more hip with age, I've hinted that they can get me an Ipad next year. So, they best begin saving.

So, over at Less Is More, we have the Lucky Dip with a theme of fruit. My little chica is kinda' showing up a bit small, but she's actually the perfect size for an A2 card. My base is Neenah solar white. My image and sentiment are from Paper Pretties (they're based in Canada). I stamped her in Memento tuxedo black and the sentiment in SU real red. The sentiment is punched out with SU's oval punch and popped up with a bit of zig zag material in the corner. I colored Chica with a combo of copics, SU markers and Bic markers because I didn't have enough of any one line to get the bright colors I needed. Chica reminds me of the Chiquita banana logo. She certainly has a variety of fruits on her head. Gee, wish I could carry stuff on my head since I often need more than two hands.

Hope you have a great week.

Blessings,
Erica
