If One Apple Is Good...

Then a basket full must be better! It's a shame you can't see this card in person. The apples are so rich looking. I lost my white gel pen, again. I think it's hiding somewhere in my pile of stuff on my desk, but until I find it, I have to make do. I did just that with the apples. I was careful to leave a white spot on the apples for some extra depth. This is some fun Autumn paper I picked up somewhere and a piece o beige with little tiny checks on it that I used for the center piece. This is an old set of stamps from SU. I stamped the leaf stamp on the center part and the verse is from the set. I bought this set on ebay for dirt! I love those kind of sets. Then if you use a while and want to resell it, you really haven't lost much.
I finally got my second card done this morning for the Hanna Stamps Design Contest #2 card. I'll post it on Saturday, so come back to check it out. She's having a great time in her bath, again!
Last night was our free Jack n' Box taco night and then $ ice cream cones at BR's. Great night! Barry went off to school today. He has a lunch meeting and then I think he's going to a Job Fair. You never know who'll you'll run into at those things. Usually nothing good ever happens because there are just too many job seekers and not enough real employers there, but you have to still keep trying.
I've gotten a few cards done this morning, but I really want to take a nap. My eyes keep closing. I may have to give in. All this is because I'm taking an overload of med's for my allergies. They are really kicking up this summer. I don't usually have this problem until the fall.
So what plans have you got for the rest of the summer? Anyone going anywhere fun? To strange new places? Tell us all! Those of us not traveling want to enjoy your trip!
Hugs to all!


  1. I love this card Paula! Those apples look good enough to eat! ~~Pam
