An apple or two for the teacher...


Good morning everyone...are you having fun on our blog hop from Mo's Digital Pencil Dreamteams so far?...isn't it a brilliant theme...you should have arrived here from the fabulous
KALY'S
blog...if you haven't and want to join in the hop and get a chance to win one of two $5 store credits for Mo's Digital Pencil, and why wouldn't you...just pop on over to the super talented JAK'S blog to start at the beginning

our theme this month is Fruit and I chose the stunning For Teacher Girl digi for my card, I love her dimples and she reminds me so much of my beautiful Daughter when she was at school...I coloured her with my usual distress inks and teamed her up with these gorgeous lush papers from one of the new pads I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...these are from the Teresa Collins 6x6" Paper Pad - Far & Away...aren't they gorgeous...I added some buttons from the Big Red Button pack to the side of my card and because I didn't have any apple embellishments I made one from a button and a couple of leaves to finish


the fab sketch is from Mojo Monday and I'm also entering this for the Card Mania Challenge and the Party Time Tuesday Challenge too...well I'm the last stop on the hop this month so I haven't a link for you to hop too but hope you haven't forgotten your comments along the way for a chance to win...I'm having a day off tomorrow as I'm going to be super busy but will speak to you all on Saturday...well its supermarket day today with my lovely Dad, oh joy of joys lol...the only thing that makes it bearable is my Dad and our 'put the world to rights' coffee...whatever your up to today I hope you get to spend some of with someone you love
