Little Green Apples…

DSCF8464-1

“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:

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!

This is just adorable with those little green apples! I love the white gel pen accents that really make these apples look real! I remember that song too, and now it will be in my head all day! LOL Like you, I never understood the meaning of that silly song! LOL
Have a great holiday weekend!

for some reason, I'm drawn to those adorable apples and if I ever start stamping again, I hope that punch is still available.

LeAnne - thanks... now I am going to have little green apples ringing around in my brain all day :-) that aside - I love this card. As for your thought progression... who knows how we get to where we do in our creations... when I figure out the way my brain works.... maybe I'll have an answer for you on that...
However, I did think that and apple should be shared and because you aren't here I have to eat it alone :-)
