Twofer Challenge 24 Fruit

Today I have cards for The Twofer Challenge.  This month the prompt is "Fruit" #24
I have used a very old stamp, so old I can't read the label.  It is the only fruit stamp I have.

For this birthday card I used the pear stamp to create an all over pattern.  The leaves are from a Hero Arts stamp set.  The images were coloured using my Lyra pencils.  The sentiment is from a Technique Tuesday set.

For my second card I again stamped and coloured the image with my Lyra pencils.  For the sentiment I used a Memory Box die cut.

We have two pear trees in our backyard and they are ladened with fruit ready to pick.  When I went into the yard early this morning eight lovely parrots flew out of the trees.  The parrots had been having pears for breakfast.



  1. You've created a lovely patter for your pears all over card and your coloring in both is wonderful. Your double pair makes a nice focal point for your thank you. So nice to have you join in at Twofer Card Challenge#24.

  2. two fabulous cards Skye..Loz

  3. Lucky parrots!! How cool to have not one, but two pear trees to pick from! I love both your very CAS thank you card with the pears perched on the leaves and your handmade DSP using the pears and the leaves for your Birthday card!! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #24! Hugs, Darnell

  4. Both cards are wonderful Skye! LOVE your CAS thank you card...the eye is drawn right into that lovely pair of pears! And your birthday card with the all over pear print is just as lovely too! Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Twofer Challenge!! :0)

  5. Both such calming beauties, Skye. What a neat b/g that is. And the thank you card is cute, too.

    Happy to have you back,


  6. You can make your own pears on the cards, but parrots only have those on the trees. :-) So, don't be mad about breakfast they had. :-) You're pear stamp is very nice and you've created two fantastic pear cards.
    Hugs, Sonja

  7. Two great cards Skye! Love them both but the 2 pears (look like a 'pair') close together is my favourite - your colouring is super!
