On to the Friday Flashback! Today's retired stamp set is Fruit Stand, a set of three stamps from 2008 and wouldn't you know, I happen to have cards with each stamp in the set.
|Also features Amazing to Zany|
|Also features Stippled Stencils|
I do like the grapes, though.
|Also features Short & Sweet|
And the raspberries are my favorite, though I suppose they could be blackberries too. This card has the most comments in my entire Splitcoast gallery thanks to a little prank my Mothermark. I later sent her a card with like 85 buttons on it.
So anyway, here is today's new creation:
I had to go with the raspberries because they're my favorite, and also because of today's FabFriday color combo:
The colors might make you think of Christmas but I'm a rebel so I did something else. I get kind of annoyed at those people who like to pretend fall doesn't exist and start dragging out their Christmas stuff before Halloween (I have a cousin who's planning to have her kids pose in their Halloween costumes next to the Christmas tree. NOOOOO!) so I like to wait until at least November to think about Christmas stuff. Thanksgiving deserves its own time in the holiday spotlight if you ask me.
Anyway, Christmas colors aside, I figure a fruit stand (and fruit in general) is a summertime thing, so I'm entering over at Retro Rubber:
And staring at that fruit stamp is kinda making me crave a piece of triple berry pie. With ice cream because of course ice cream. Anyway, as I said Fruit Stand came out in 2008, so it's now 8 years old, and the Four You sentiment is 3 years old.
I also used this week's Retro Sketch:
I turned the sketch on its side, and instead of having the three small circular elements clustered around the image, I lined up some Candy Dots in the corner of my card.
Okay kids, I'm off to clean up my stamp table and maybe organize a few things. Then I can start my next scrapbook layout with a clean slate. Have a great weekend!
