Challenge 65 - 3 Fruits

Are you all full up from the yummy chocolate, strawberry and cream from the last challenge we set? Oooh! the number of calories we consumed as we devoured your wonderful creations. Thank you all so much for helping us all (especially us on the DT) to gain a bit of weight!
Maybe we should get a teeny bit healthier this time around to balance things out a little.

Anyway the winner of the last challenge is .....


Congratulations. Please would you e-mail us at and we'll let you know how to claim your prize.

Our challenge has been set by me (Sharon), this week. And, yes I have decided we need a little diet and some healthier fayre. Okay, okay! You can all stop boo-ing now! lol! The DT cards are amazing and really colourful on this diet.

I'd like you to take 3 fruit colours from the inspirational picture (list below the picture):

Fruits to choose from:

Melon, Apple, Banana, Kiwi, Cherry, Orange, Strawberry, Pineapple, Papaya, Coconut, (can also use the black seeds)
Don't forget to tell us which 3 fruits you picked!

The optional extra is INCLUDE FRUIT ON YOUR PROJECT.
