Notepad Cover

Morning and a new "No Cards"challenge  blog "Unique Art Expressions"is into its third challenge which is "Fruit", now the only fruit stamps I have are the slices of lemon on a Visible Image stamp set so hope these are okay.Sorting through my oddments box I found a looks like a smooshed background with the right colour so stamped the glass,sentimen and two slices of lemon,the stamped two more on the offcut,added colour with a promarker and added glossy accents.I also found three small notepads I bought must be three yearts ago and decided to cover one which was the reason I originally bought them-still better late than never.
