Fruit Salad

9/11-We will never forget

 Good morning friends. 
I'm joining in the Denami Blog Hop today which is all about tasty treats!
You should have arrived from Suzanne's blog, but if you are lost just go to the Denami Blog to see a list of participants.

One of my favorite foods in the whole world is fresh fruit salad. *swoon*
 I could eat it daily, and often do!
Many mornings this summer I have chopped up half a melon, a few plums and peaches, and tossed in some blueberries or raspberries and a sliced banana.  With a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice it's the best breakfast ever!


Not only did I use a variety of fun fruit stamps from Denami, but I also used the rainbow stamp to help me make the bowl! After inking and stamping the last arc of the rainbow, I simply drew a tiny bottom and a curved top. I then created a vellum overlay to make it look as if it were a clear bowl.

So now that you've seen my Tasty Treat card, be sure to leave a comment because Denami is giving away TWO $20 gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop!

Next stop is Carol's blog and you are in for a treat (pun intended)!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, hope you have a good one.
*mwah*
