Let's get fruity

Hello, it's Monday again, it comes round so quickly. I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely weekend. I'm going to my cousins cremation today, I mentioned him earlier this month, he died of a Brain Aneurism at the age of 38, it is also my Mum's birthday today too, so she's saying goodbye to her nephew on her birthday. My youngest son has fractured his hand and it's driving him mad and he's driving me mad, as there is no Football practice or Rugby, he's so fed up. As I see it things can only get better. Let's move on to today's challenge card.

It is time for another theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it was Paula's turn to choose the theme and she chose "Let's Get fruity" - Use something on your creation that has fruit on it. As soon as I saw the theme I knew which stamp I had to use. I used Joanna Sheens Autumn JSHM017
Of course you must use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.

We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp who will be giving one lucky winner $25 gift certificate and also Sweet Stamps Store who will give a $10 gift certificate.
The top two players with the most votes will be the prize winners and also asked to be our next GDT'S.

Now to announce the winner of my House Mouse candy, it's .....................Jane Middleton

What a lovely card Tracy - great colours & colouring & such a sweet image. I'm sure your Mum will love it. Hope all goes well for your family today - a sad day indeed. I also hope your son finds something to amuse himself with - have you tried jig-saws - an old favourite but one that can pass the time & be quite enjoyable. Jx
