Farm Fresh Fruits & Veggies Cards!

Today I wanted to share with you 2 fun cards that I made that were inspired by a trip to our local farmstand!!

We love to go the the farmstand with our kids (which just so happens to be where I used to work back when I was in school). The kids each get a basket and fill it up with their favorite fruits & veggies and then when we get home we see what we can make with all the fresh goodies! Last week, we had chicken kabobs with zucchini, onions, peppers and cherry tomatoes that my son picked out and we made some fruit kabobs with watermelon, apples, grapes and strawberries...that my daughter picked out. We packed them up and went down to the beach to listen to a live band play....what could be better...waves behind you, cool sand in your toes and a fresh kabob in your hand!!! We had a great time. So, being inspired by our farmstand, I couldn't resist making these summer cards! I designed them for Thoughts2paper with product that can be found in the Thoughts2paper store!

For the 'you're Rad' card I used Just Because Cards and cut the radish at 8", title at 3 1/2" and the scallop border (pg. 39) at 7" . For the pear card, I used Serenade cricut cartridge and cut the pear at 3" and computer generated the sentiment!
I hope you enjoy these cards as much as I do! I hope they will inspire you to visit your local farmstand for some fresh fruit & veggies! Have a wonderful summer afternoon!!

supplies used from Thoughts2paper store: Just Because Cards & Serenade cricut cartridges, AC primary cardstock and 'root cellar' paper by October Afternoon.

P.S. We have some new and exciting things coming to Thoughts2paper soon, so keep watching!!!
