Fruit, Ltd

Here's another cute image from 
Clearly Digital Stamps,
 designer Austin Owens!
From her Fruit, Ltd set -
 I used the cherry image 
and the words to go with it.

I've had this cherry paper in my stash for a long time ! It's from Kaiser Craft.  I guess it pays to hoard paper!

I colored the image with colored pencils
