House Mouse: Let's Get Fruity theme

It's time for another House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog challenge challenge # 123.  Our lovely design team mate, Paula Holifield, has come up with the perfect challenge for these hot summer days: "Let's get fruity!"  So pull out your House Mouse, Happy Hopper and/or Gruffies stamps with a fruit theme and show us your artwork.

I have a winner for my blog candy that I posted for House Mouse and Friends 1000+ followers celebration.  I used random number selector and included ALL OF THE NAMES from both cards I posted for Challenge #122 Liquid Refreshments.  So everyone who posted on either or both of my cards had a chance to win my blog candy.  And the winner is....... Sandra H. !  Sandra, if you will email me privately with your snail mail address I'll mail your blog candy right out to you.  I hope you'll enjoy it!  Thank you EVERYONE for playing along in the blog hop and challenge.  Be sure to check out the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog for winners of our sponsor's prizes as well as other Design Team members blog candy.
For our new Fruity Challenge I used a very old and well loved stamp, called sleeping with Strawberries.  Have you been enjoying the fresh strawberries as much as I have lately?

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Stampa Rosa Inc "Sleeping with Strawberries (Mudpie) and Stampin' Up! Sentiment (Sweets for the Sweets)
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Stampin' Up! Real Red, Tim Holtz RANGER Distress Ink (Aged Mahogany) and image colored with Copic Markers
Paper: Making Memories (English Garden)
Embellishments: Die-namics Designer Label die from My Favorite Things (MFT), Machine Stitching, Stampin' Up! Red/White Baker's Twine, Offray ribbon, Button from sewing box stash, red half crystals and red Stickles glitter glue.

We look forward to seeing your artwork with the new challenge, Let's get Fruity.  If you post on a gallery, please use the keywords HMFMC123 so we can find your card and leave you some love.
