Absolute Pear-fection!

      I'm tickled to be posting my first DT card for Creative Knockouts and our theme this time is "Something to Say" (use a sentiment.)   The challenge is sponsored by Jan's Digi Stamps (another of the DTs I serve :-D) and the prize is  $10 (US) gift certificate for a shopping spree at their store.

     I chose an image & sentiment from the "Fall Pear-fection" set.  I thought it made a lovely 'Friendship' card. 

     I'm still following the "challenge-yourself" idea being promoted by my blogging buddy, V.  It's called "Just Stash January" and it involves using nothing but things already in your stash throughout the entire month of January!  There are a few reasonable exceptions (all of which mean that no money has come out of your pocket) and you can read about those on her post.  Just click on the link above to find out all about it, then start counting those coins and bills you'll be 'stashing' in your pocket this month instead of crying about even more charges on the credit cards after the holiday season.  :-D  Everything on this card came from the stash!

Lovely card NanaConnie. I like the die that you framed the image with - such a pretty edging on it. The background paper reminds me of a tablecloth.

Connie, Tremendous job whether stash or not. Pear-fect die frame to enhance the image. Thank you for showcasing my "Fall Pear-fection: set. Like so many of us, I need to spend more than January in my paper stash.
