Apple Pie – Must be harvest time!

Being married to the Rector of 5 parishes means that this time of year there are a lot of Harvest Services and lunches/suppers. Every one of the churches has apple pie on it’s menu every year so it is no wonder that I hardly ever make an apple pie during the rest of the year. There are only so many apple pies one can eat! Which brings me to my card for today.

Materials used:SAM_2270(watermarked)
Imagine That – Maggie’s Apples
spotty designer paper
red brads
stamping card
acrylic greetings stamps
Copic pens

I printed out my image and coloured it in with Copic pens. I trimmed my image down to the size I wanted and then matted and layered it onto the two designer papers leaving a small border around the edge each time. I stamped out my greeting using two stamps and matted and layered it to match the topper. I then attached both to my card base before finally adding the red brads.

I did change the apple sign having made up the card because I wanted it to fit with the idea of the apples being a present to go with the sentiment so I crossed out the price!

Thank you for popping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Love the brilliance of those red apples, and this is so cute! Love the tiny dotted frame, backed by the red solid skinny mat. It really sets off this happy Bossy with her basket of delicious apples. Enjoy all those pies. TFS & Hugs
