A Blog Named Hero Challenge: Unexpected

Happy Aloha Friday!

has a new challenge up today with the theme


I was having a lot of fun coloring
with this stamp set


such a great way to practice shading with copics and even watercoloring!

Ready for my UNEXPECTED card....


I decided to make a fruit basket with the
Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle dies
to create a shaped card.
The pear was stamped without the sentiment inside and
the pineapple is from an older Hero Arts set (CL 442).
I die cut the circle twice to create a half moon/basket shape and stamped with
that fab gingham pattern by Lawn Fawn in Soft Sand Shadow ink.
The fruits were fussy cut and arranged using some foam tape.

This is what the back side looks like...


and I covered it up with another stitched circle for a finished look.

Here it is standing upright...


I hope you found this to be unexpected!
It completely reminded me of when my grandmother
would visit someone in the hospital
and we always had a fruit basket to give.

I hope you'll join us for this challenge for a chance to win



Mahalo for stopping by!
