“God didn’t make little green apples”….if you’re of a certain age, you might remember that Bobby Goldsboro song! I had no idea what in the world he was singing about, but I liked the tune! And while I was making this card, that song just kept running through my head! There were three challenges that could fit my little green apple theme:
- City Crafter was to use shades of green
- Flourishes FTTC73 was to use fruit (I am loving my apple punch!)
- and the Card Patterns Sketch 70, shown here:
and here is my card:
Now truthfully, I don’t know what this card is supposed to be “saying” by having the progression of bitten-into apples…..”I am bored while I am missing you, so I am eating an apple”??? I have no idea what my thought process was, but I did think it was a cute idea, so I am just going with the flow here. I used some Wild Wasabi, Garden Green and Confetti White cardstock along with some Basic Grey Urban Prairie (I think—it was a loose sheet floating around). The apple punch is from MS, and I sponged some color on my apples and used a SU gel pen for the “bites”, which are punched with SU’s scallop oval punch. The little apple is from CHF, Making the Grade. I LOVE this sketch but did struggle with it….overthinking, I guess!
Well, that’s it for today….gearing up for the holiday weekend, boating, visiting friends…..a fun time!! Hopefully I can squeeze in something for tomorrow!
