Apple of my eye - thank YOU!

You know, I am sooo lucky. I have an amazing set of friends, a family I love to spend time with and - now don't fall over - I love my job (even if it keeps me from crafting occasionally!). I can't wait to go to work tomorrow, have lunch/drinks with my friends this week and THEN spend some virtual time with my blogging friends! Is my life boring?? Probably, but who cares!!! Anyway, you can see that I am in a very good mood and I just want to say a thank you to YOU for contributing to my great life!

Okay, waffle over. I made more time today to craft. I'm halfway through some, but here's one I finished tonight (after a day walking along the coast and having lunch in Brighton Marina) AND I think I really like it!

I am entering it for the All That Scraps weekly Wednesday challenge to make a shaped card. I've been dying to make something other than a square or rectangular card for aaages, so perfect timing!

I should have a card to share with you tomorrow, so until then - ttfn!!
Papers/cardstock: Papermania cardstock, October Afternoon Cherry Hill paper pack
Mediums: Copic Caios, Inksessentials white gel pen
Stamps: CC Designs Super Plum Apple Emma

Accents: jute ribbon, iridescent gems (from Bunny Zoe's here and here), sentiment - can't remember!
Tools: Nestabilities scalloped circle die cut

Oh my gosh this is so adorable! Love everything from the colouring on the image, the shape, the pattern paper - everything just works so beautifully! And I love reading that life is good because that's the way it should always be! :-) (((hugs)))

Mary J this looks gorgeous. Great colour choice with the bright red scollop circle really makes the colouring on your image pop! That textured ribbon? behind the image is perfect for this card too.

This is so cute. I love the faux stitching and the you colored her dress green. The green really makes all the apples pop.
