I love Pears!

I have been collecting pear images for many years, so the latest stamp release from PTI, Fruitful, was "pear-fect" for me! *groan* Fruit just seems to call to me, both in stamping and in eating. We eat a LOT of fruit in my household.
After inking up the pear image several times using the rock-n-roll technique, I cut three of them out and added some stems and leaves. I love how each element is separate, so it can be a different color!Doesn't it look good with the raspberry fizz and lemon tart colors? I used another PTI set, Background Basics: Text style, to stamp some background interest on the yellow behind the pears. I also decided to leave the sentiment off this one until I need it for a specific occasion. (Who am I kidding? I'm keeping this card for myself! *grin*)

So thanks for putting up with my long absence. What with my husband's bicycle accident and subsequent broken leg, finishing the applications for my children to attend private school, my four-year-old having his tonsils out and tubes put in his ears, summer vacation, family reunions, and my crazy work schedule now that the Emerald Ash Borer is in NY, it's a miracle that I have ANY time to stamp!

Thanks for stopping by! I'll have more in the next few days too!
