Great Pear

I love pears (green ones), so I wanted to use the pear image from DZ Doodles when I saw it on the new releases last weekend. I needed two cards for annivaries this month and this card idea came to me while I was helping my DH build our fence. I was in deep thought (about my addiction, of course) and my DH would say, "Kim!" I would reply, "Oops...sorry!". It is funny where I am when I come up with card ideas. I am thinking about them all the time and some times when I am not supposed to be (right, Patti?).

I thought that the sentiment "Great pear...after all of these years. Happy Anniversary." worked well with this image. I am bummed that you can't see the coloring as well as I wish you could. There is a lot more yellow mixed in with the green.

Wendy, can you believe I used kraft paper again? I love this stuff! I didn't want to add more paper to the front, so I wrote the words great pear myself. I am no Ali Edwards or Becky Higgins with my handwriting, but I think it turned out okay.

Here is the rest of the sentiment inside. I did use CK Ali Edwards font for the inside. I didn't want to risk writing too much. You can download her font at Creating Keepsakes website for free.

I wanted to give you a heads up about the DZ Doodles group at Paper Craft Planet.

Ooo, Kim, what a wonderful card! I know what you mean about a card idea. Sometimes I get an original thought, too, and it sneaks up on me and grabs my attention! Mostly I just copy real artists like you!
