The Apple of My Eye

For those of you who don't know yet, I have recently accepted a position as a new Design Team Member at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  You can check out the challenge blog here at: and this week, we are having a super fun challenge that's all about "Apples".  The sponsor is Karen's Doodles.  Her website is here at: and she (Karen Johnson) has so many fun and beautiful images in a wide variety of categories for your crafting needs.  Check it out.  You can enter the "Apple Challenge" at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges by clicking on this link: and entering any creation with an apple (or apples) on the project.  You will win free images from Karen's Doodles if you are the lucky winner.  I really hope you will play along.

This is the card I made for the Design Team Challenge:
I used Cosmo Cricket Early Bird patterned papers, tags, stickers and embellishments along with the "Apple of my Eye" digital image from Karen's Doodles.  I machine stitched it, added some buttons and rick rack - pretty simple really.  You can own this digital image for only $3 (I believe).  She has so many cute images that are worth checking out.  Super cute for every occasion.

I hope you will play along at Penny's Challenges.  So far, there aren't a lot of entries, so your odds are really good, and you will have SO much fun with the challenge.  Pop on over and check it out.

Thanks for taking a peek.  I appreciate your sweet comments.
