Less Is More...Let's get citrusy

Hi friends,

I'm blessed to have been able to have citrus of some kind for the past 17 years. Ever since moving from New York to Arizona, I've had citrus trees myself, or neighbors and/or relatives who have had an abundance to share with me. Often native Arizonians don't even harvest from their trees because they're sick of lemons, grapefruits, and several varieties of oranges. That hasn't happened to me yet. I eat them, juice them, bake with them and decorate with them. And, don't even ask me how much I love the scent of orange blossoms. 

Ha Ha. I'll bet you were certain you'd be seeing fruits, Well, I haven't got a one citrus fruit in my stash...I plan to rectify that. Instead, I had these cute little fishes. Tropical fish can be of many colors, so I took advantage of that. I was eager to use my newest die set, from Just Rite Dies, called, Three in a Row. I colored with watercolor pencils and watercolor brushes from SAI.
The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp kit set. The fish images are from a set called, Perfectly Clear Stamps. I've had them for years and never got around to them, as I'm not much of a cutsie stamper. But they fit into these boxes perfectly and I loved that I the fish face each other.  

Head over to LIM and play with the divas. They are having a fun time.
