GDP42 and AYSI138 Apple of My Eye

Happy Saturday, peeps!  This is a quick card for today, getting ready for a little cookout tonight!  The Global Design Project has a wonderful CAS sketch:

and As You See It is celebrating Canada Day with the colors of red and white:


Originally, I had planned to do a Christmas card but didn't like the final result, so I went with an apple theme:

I just got this Writing Notes background stamp and hadn't inked it up yet; I think it looks cute with the Papertrey apple and sentiment:

And doesn't that little enamel heart look so sweet?  The circles are diecut from a Lil'Inker die , as is the rectangle mat.  Easy peasy!  Enjoy your day and be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!

Cassidy is on vacation this week, so no photos unless I get some via Facebook, LOL!  I'll leave you with our little wrens who just today are trying to's a slow process!  Momma keeps trying to encourage them with some treats, but they are still hovering inside where it's safe!


  1. Cute apple card with appropriate notebook paper in red! Maybe those little wrens are just camera shy

  2. Absolutely love wrens!! You never can tell where they'll nest!!

    (Yes, the card is adorable - yours always are!!! Love the clean, fresh red & white combo!!)

  3. Cute card LeAnne! Love your bird pics!

  4. Great card - love the red and white! I am slowly acquiring some stitched dies and can't wait to play with them. We have an old lobster buoy that has been made into a birdhouse. We are on our second set of wrens. First fledged about 2 weeks ago and now there are two more setting up housekeeping. We think there are some eggs, but we don't know for sure. No cheeping coming from inside yet so they haven't hatched if there are. This second set of birds are not as skittish as the first ones were and the kids can sit quietly on the porch and they will come and go carrying all kinds of stuff to add to the nest -feathers, candy wrappers, sticks, etc. I love it! ~chris

  5. Such a clean and vibrant card! With the red apple and the school note paper, it would make also make a great teacher card, with a different sentiment. So pleased that you've joined us again at As You See It.

  6. Lovely clean card LeAnne. The colours and design are so crisp and match the apple perfectly! Thanks so much for joining in with this week's Global Design Project!

  7. LeAnne, what fabulous photos of your little wren. Especially when they are nesting in that adorable little house! Love your card, too.

  8. Perfect clean and simple card and I love the sentiment! Hope you enjoyed the cookout! Thanks for sharing your design with us at As You See It Challenges this time.

  9. Sweet card - I love the red-and-white color scheme. So clean and sweet. Love the bird pics, too! Thanks so much for playing along with this week's Global Design Project sketch challenge!

  10. Look at those birds!!! I love watching birds in my yard. Your red and white card is so perfect for teachers! I love it! Thank-you for playing along with the Global Design Project.
