Week Twenty - Any 3 of these: Strawberry, Raspberry, Kiwi, Tangerine and Blackberry

A warm welcome back to all you followers of Colour Create and a very happy Thursday!

Thank you so much to everyone who joined us again for last week's challenge - as the weather gets a bit warmer we're seeing some very pretty, summery cards!

This week none of our team have stepped down and we have nobody new to introduce, however our Katy is having a rest and will hopefully be back to play along again next week ;o)

It's about time we invited someone to be our guest for July don't you think? We will pick somebody at random from the entries we receive this week and will then announce who our guest will be at the start of next week's challenge....... good luck everyone!

So when I was sitting having a think about a theme and some colours for this week's challenge I realised that the Wimbledon tennis tournament is about to start in the UK. Anyone who sits glued to this like me will know that it conjurs up thoughts of eating strawberries and cream or drinking Pimms and lemonade packed with summer fruits....... or even better both, lol! So that's the inspiration for our challenge - fruits. Choose ANY THREE of the following colours; Strawberry, Raspberry, Kiwi, Tangerine and Blackberry. We'd hate to think that you couldn't play along because you don't have quite the right shades of these colours, so a little bit of artistic licence is just fine.......... I suppose we're talking Red, Pink, Green, Orange and Black really, but don't they sound scrummy when you give them fruity names?!

Here is a picture to help you out a bit..........

And now for the optional extra...... we're staying with the fruit theme for this one, so we would like you to incorporate fruits somewhere into your design, be it the papers, the image, the embellishments or the sentiment. Please remember that this isn't compulsory though and that you may combine our challenge with any other you feel like entering ;o)


Here are the Design Team cards for this week....











Thanks for taking the time to visit our challenge.

We look forward to visiting you all to see your wonderful creations - have a great week! xxx

I don't normally do "cute" but most of the entries on this challenge seem to be cute. So I dug into my stamps and found this mouse stamp my son gave me at Christmastime. I have added another card on my blog along with the earlier one.
