GDP051 and NBUS7 - Pineapples!

Hello!

Recently a fabulous SU! pineapple stamp made its way into my collection. To be honest, this pineapple almost jumped out of the catalogue and into my lap on my first flick through. ;-)

This week at Global Design Project the theme is FOOD which is just perfect for me to take my pineapple on its first outing. :-)
Having spent many days on my aunt and uncle's pineapple farm as a kid, pineapples have a special place in my heart. In fact, they have a special part in our whole extended family's hearts because we all spent many happy times on that farm. This card is for my aunty. I also made her a boxed set of pineapple cards as a gift with pineapple-stamped envelopes to match.
I haven't photographed them all, but they're all different colours, just like real life pineapples!

This pineapple also fits into the category of NBUS (never before used schtuff) so I'm entering over at Darnell's current challenge.

Thanks for visiting!
