An Apple A Day

Hi there

I just love apples on cards and projects.  I don’t know why but they just conjure up happy homely feelings, so when I got this little Paper Smooches set I just knew I wanted to make a little card for my princess.  She is getting really well at school, too well for my liking actually lol. I do love her to bits!!

So my little card (3 x 3) is for today’s Play Date Cafe challenge, which has the suggested colours of Wine, Smudge, Leather and Parchment.

I chose to use wine and parchment for my main colours and then just accent with the leather and smudge.  I don’t often use wine as a colour, so it made a refreshing change.

What I love about this card is the glossy accents effect on the heart, they are just such a cool product, don’t you think!  I love the high gloss and 3d effect you get with them, I don’t know why I don’t use them more really.  I think my card is pretty self explanatory but I just wanted to point out that I also used crackle on the leaf, if you look closely you may just be able to make it out.

A short and sweet post from me today, Tinks has been up half the night with a sickness virus and I'm aching all over too now, it's been a looooonnnnngggg night!

  1. Poor Tinks! I'm sorry she is not well, and you sound pretty tired too, Ruby. Hope you both are back to normal soon.

    Your card is adorable! I love that shiny little plaid heart. :)

  2. Ooh, no, the dreaded sick bug! It was going round Francis Baily the first week, 10 kids off and the teacher by day three! Seems to have died down now, so I hope you get some rest today and Tinks feels better soon.
