An Apple A Day......

This weeks Crazy For Cocoa Challenge is about Resolutions. As my Cocoa stamps are on the very limited side, I used the apple design stamp from Autumn Lovin Cocoa. This card will go into my stash I am gathering of apple cards for the farmers market in the Spring. I have about 10 made so far. Some new stamped apple images arrived before Christmas from a stamping friend, and I will be diving into them soon. Okay, back to the challenge at hand. There are lots of digital parts to my card, including my dp and sentiments which I created on the computer. Coloring was done with Copics. Sponging is done with Old Olive ink from SU!. I added some bakers twine, which is a new love of mine, and some Amuse gems to set off my sentiment. My date was punched, glazed and popped for dimension. I also added a couple butterflies which were inside punches from a border.
Here is my inside edge, which I though looked pretty cute. I don't know about your house, but the diet is totally back in focus in mine. Time for healthy eating!

Sounds like snow is on it's way again. DH stopped and grabbed me glue last night, in case it's a stay in and create weekend. Thanks for coming around. I just love reading your comments. There is a new release at Gina K. Designs tonight if you are looking for some chat and fun. Some of the new sets are awesome! Bye for now!

Your card is adorable! And I have to say, I'm so impressed with the inside of your card! Every single card I show DH, he opens to see what's inside. Every few cards, I actually do finish the inside just so I can see him smile! Love this, Mary Anne, and your stash sounds like it is growing!!!

Cute card Mary Anne! Love how you did the inside of your card too. Don't know about your house but the snow was a bust here. Kids were wanting a 2 hr delay!
