Feeling Fruity

I'm not feeling fruity just my cards , in fact I have a water infection and just feel a need to spend a penny ever 5 mins , bit painful too. It's not affecting my crafting though .
I cut the fruit out on my silhouette portrait using a cutting file from silhouette america  . The paper on the pear card is K&Co, the paper on the apple card  G.C.D studios . Both sentiments were done on my silhouette machine using a sketch pen for the lettering. I've stitched with  a zig zag stitch on my sewing machine , the stitched keep skipping so I filled the mistakes in as best I could with a black biro. The gathered black checck ribbon I bought from ebay, along with other colours,( I used all my red on Christmas decorations), I love this stuff , must get some more ! The ribbon on the apple card was from hobby craft. I've inked some edges with wild honey distress ink .

 Happy crafting .janex
