An apple a day... (CIC277)

It's time for another challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations! Come on over and join us. :)

This week our challenge is sponsored by 7 Kids College Fund.
7 Kids is offering our randomly drawn winner a $20 gift certificate! 

Wow! Thank you so much, 7 Kids College Fund

This week our challenge to you is Back to School!! 

Apple Cupcakes by iVillage
This is for my goddaughter who started back to school recently. I'm a little behind on my cards because of how sick I have been. It's good to be creating again.

I used this 'Geekin' It' stamp from Saturated Canary. I love Krista's images; they're just fantastic and so much fun to color. I stamped her out with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her up with my Copic markers.

I used Echo Park's Cut and Paste paper pad. My Neenah Desert Storm card base is 5.5 inches square. I used some ABC twill from my stash (you can't really tell because it knotted the wrong way) and tied a embroidery thread bow around my charm to hold it on. I added Glossy Accents to her glasses and button on her shoe.

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
