Less is More - feeling fruity

First of all, thanks for all those kind comments on my first effort this week . Mandi and Chrissie you do inspire us you know . I really did think my mojo had gone for a long holiday. Does anyone else think that when they've had a longish break from crafting I wonder?

Ok so this is card no 2. Apples again! I thought this might be an amusing card for a child - they love yukky things like grubs in apples don't they?
I punched out apples and leaves and a punched swirl for the 'grub' and gave him two little eyes with a white pen. Also punched out the little holes for 'grubby' to climb through.
The faux stitched border is done with a red pen as is the handwritten sentiment.
Base card is a plain white 5inch square.
And now I'm going to see if I can think of any more ideas for different fruits.
