"Fruit, Flowers and Friends.....Things I Like to Pick" card ~ Day 3 of CDS sneak peeks!

Hi again!
Today I get to share one of the cutest images illustrated by my friend Shawne Arnold. It is called "Fabulous Fruit Stand" and it is so fun to color! It will be available at Clear Dollar Stamps on April 1st.

Remember, you can click on any image for a closer view.
Little Tip: After water coloring the jeans, I crosshatched with white and blue colored pencils for a 'denim" look.
I paper pieced the top and popped the girl once and her ponytail again.
I f you have not seen yesterdays post, you should check it out. You could win one of my latest stamps to be released!
You also will want to go check out what the other awesome DTs are peeking today by visiting Lori's Blog for the complete list of stamp releases and links to who is peeking them.

Thanks again for dropping by!
True :D
