Love to Create Challenge

Morning all, a very good Monday morning to you. Can you believe we're in Mid November already?! Where does the time go?

Well, it's time for a new challenge at Love to Create and in honour of our American friends the challenge this week is 

Give Thanks 

We're sponsored this week by Robyn's Fetish who gave the DT some images to play with. 

This was a little out of my comfort zone - I've never made a Thanksgiving card and I've never coloured in fruit for a card before - there's usually a person involved in the image..... Never mind, that's why it's a challenge eh? 

I've even done a spot of paper piecing on this card so I'd get a kinda wooden fruit bowl effect. I'm quite pleased with it.
