FCCB Challenge #170 Fruit Salad

Happy Monday !!

Welcome to my post for Challenge # 170
over at

Here is my project for the challenge, its another 3D make this time using Cricut Spring Cottage and Artiste Cartridges and my Expression 2

I loved making this basket full of strawberries it reminded me of the fabulous summer garden party I went to on Friday held by my wonderful friend Jo, the weather was just amazing if not a tad too hot lol but she does have a real life proper swimming pool that we were able to cool off in and there was plenty of champagne flowing all day long and well into the night
x Thanks Jo x

The basket is made with Spring Cottage on the larger 12x24 mat and inked with various Distress Inks
I used some lace and pearls on cord to decorate the outside and pieces of burlap fabric and raffia inside

The little strawberries are put together by stringing them with Baker's twine and are big enough to put little sweets inside
I made them from both Spring Cottage and Artiste as the 2 designs on the cartridges are slightly different -  no 2 strawberries are ever the same right ?? !!

I have to confess to being just a little bit in love with this little basket !!

Please pop over to FCCB and see all the amazing projects the DT have created 
You have from now until 1900 Sunday evening to make a project with fruit on it if you would like to enter the challenge
The rules are simple just use and name a Cricut Cartridge of your own choosing
I will be on my way to work after my week off when this post goes live and Acting Ward Manager again, this time, for the foreseeable future .... wish me luck !! !! !!
