Apple Lily Preview

Hi ho, hi ho it's preview time you know! Hi ho hi ho hi ho hi ho...hehehe I just absolutely adore this little image...she is just as sweet as pie...apple pie in fact! reminds me a little of snow white with her little apple!

I love simple cards...CAS, Clean And Simple and one layer cards...they are the easiest for me to work with and they seem to turn out nicely I do believe. My little card here measures 4.25 square and she is just too sweet. I made a simple thank you card to give to my sons teacher for being so flexible with us being out of the country for so long and having her help me get all his school work together for us to have on hand with us. But you could also use this little beauty to use as a tag on an apple pie or other hand baked treats...hmmm maybe I'll try and use her for that soon!

Anywho, this little cutie will be available to all for purchasing pleasure on Tuesday...so hop on over to the Little Paper Shop blog and see what the rest of the DT has come up with!

Blessings to all!!

LPSC57...a sketch challenge!

Hello my friends! Today is MOnday...work, school, business of the week starts today...but also some fun with a chance to win FREE stamps starts every Monday too...so head on over to the Little Paper Shop Blog to enter!

Here is the sketch for you.

It's actually a very fun and super easy sketch...I made my card in a matter of minutes, love how it turned out too!

And my card.

I used the stamp set {ROCK STAR} by Little Paper Shop such a cute set and at 8bucks you really can't go wrong! I actually made this at my friend Nikki's house, I'm in the states visiting and had sooo much fun with her! So I was able to play with her Copics and some of her fun papers and ribbon. Alas, I can't tell you much about this card except that I love it and I used some SU colors like old olive and always artichoke and I am pretty sure the light green is from Marks Finest Papers. Ohh and I also used Black Pallete Noir ink to stamp the image and sentiment.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you go on over to the Little paper Shop Blog and play along...this weeks FREE SET is called {Floral Wishes} and one lucky participant will be randomly selected to win!

Have a great day my friends and Happy Stampin!
