The Apple of My Eye


I knew the moment I saw this Apple of My Eye stamp set from Flourishes last month that I was going to love coloring these apples! I actually did color them, several weeks ago and finally took some free time this weekend to make a card using the image. I'm so happy with how it turned out! Doesn't this make you just want to pluck one of those delicious fruits right from the branch and take a bite? :) I love to go apple picking and haven't had time this Fall to do so. I'll have to settle for apples that someone else already picked, I guess.

The Gingham background here is a Cover-a-Card background stamp from Impression Obsession. I just LOVE those awesome backgrounds they have, along with the Mega-Mount handle used to stamp them. I have some at the store, but definitely need to order more including the gingham. I stamped this on Kraft cardstock using Barn Door distress ink, and also stamped the sentiment on Kraft using the distress ink.
I had a wonderful weekend.... I hope you did, too! Thanks for stopping by!

Girl, your coloring ability is SERIOUSLY among the best in the industry. I cannot get over how good you are! I thought you took a print of these apples, and cut them out for your card. As soon as I read that you colored them, I just shook my head and smiled. That's my girl ♥ This card is so pretty...all of your elements balance themselves out perfectly! Love your colors also, girlie!
