CQC #146 & RS #20 ~ Apple of My Eye!

It's raining, it's pouring and I'm pretty sure somewhere out there there's an old man that's snoring ~ tee hee! All silliness aside I hope it rains ALL day, we sure do need it. Hey how about a card? I put one together using the colors from the ColourQ and a fun sketch from Retro Sketches. Take a look!

This went together with some snippets of scrap paper, a couple of PTI: fruit fusion apples along with a sentiment from the set and a Fiskars scalloped punch. My wooden buttons threaded with red button twine match my kraft cardstock pretty well dontcha think! I added a few pompoms for some fun texture.


I hope you have a delightful day and whoever has been doing the rain dance; don't stop the boogie...keep it up please!!! ~Lisa
