LIM 6 monthiversary!

It's LIM day again, and today it's 6 months since the first challenge - so happy 6 monthiversary Chrissie and Mandi!

I was really upset when I saw it was the 6 month anniversary when I saw the theme of fruit as I thought I would have to miss the challenge as I don't have anything fruity in my stash :-(  However on my trip to the supermarket this morning I found August's Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine which had chipboard on the front and free digipaper downloads inside both of which feature fruit - so hurrah - I can play today afterall and keep my weekly entry tally going :-)


Very simple card, cream base to match the chipboard then I just used a strip of the digipaper, the cherry chipboard, a couple of nestie circles and I wrote the sentiment with my copic fineliner.

Happy Less is More day - hope the sun is shinning.
